Snow already!?!

I was shocked to see the weather report in the Dakotas! And then I heard we have the possibility for snow this week! Yikes! I am so not ready for winter... IRL! But I do like making snowman and snow scene cards!

I need help with this first card. When I unmounted, I lost track of some of my individual stamps' companies. Do you know which stamp company made this cute image?

Edit: I found it! It's from Inkadinkado

Stamps: Snowman - Inkadinkado, Baroque Motifs - SU
Paper: white, brocade blue, unknown DP
Ink: brocade blue, close to cocoa, pumpkin pie
Accessories: ribbon, brads, Marvy scallop punch, CM custom cutting system, dimensionals

Let it snow... on Christmas day... then it can go away! LOL!

Stamps: Snow Friends - Sweet 'n Sassy
Paper: kraft, kraft DSP, white, pink pirouette
Ink: chocolate chip
Accessories: CB Swiss Dots, white crayon, ribbon, Marvy scallop punch, CM custom cutting system, circle punches

Doesn't this look like fun? When I was in elementary school it was! Oh the things parents don't know... thinking back about the hills in the woods we sledded on, I can't believe we were ever allowed to go there without it being inspected. Thankfully, no one ever got hurt.

Stamps: Tobaggon Ride - High Hopes, Tiny Talk - SU
Paper: bashful blue, bashful blue DSP, white, certainly celery, brocade blue
Ink: black, bashful blue, brocade blue

She won!

She won! One of my very best friends, Robin McGregor, won a seat on our local school board! And she came in first by 100s of votes! I am so excited for her! She worked hard, she's honest, she's there for the teachers and students and she deserves this!

I've been on the phone all morning. LOL! I'm exhausted, have a migraine and have post-election stuff to do later.... but it was soooo worth it. I'll be back with at least 2 cards for the awesome SCS sketch challenge. I'm ready to stamp again!
