Day 21 - "S"

It's another easy letter today - there are lots of great "S" words that relate to the holidays, including snow, for those in the northern hemisphere, or sunshine, for those in the south. Even though I live in Australia, where there isn't a hint of snow to be seen at this time of year, I've still gone with snowflakes. Mostly because of these gorgeous stickers that my Mum-in-law sent me last year... how could I resist?


YOUR TURN: Create a card using the letter "S" as your prompt.

Hi Beccy your cards are gorgeous. I can see why you couldn't resist using the beautiful snowflake stickers. We don't get snow often in the south of England it causes huge disruption when we do. Enjoy your day. Hugs Jackie

Your snow card is sensational Beccy! And how fortunate you are to have a Mum-in-law who sends your such super snowflake stickers. Although we can have snow this time of the year it isn't too likely right now. Mother Nature seems to be sending us lots of storms though. Love the monochromatic look to your card. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, my, Beccy, those snowflakes are beautiful ! Even though I'm in the northern hemisphere where winter is setting in, there's no snow anywhere near where I live. I lived the better part of 2 years in Anchorage, Alaska, and said "Never Again" to living in snow country when I moved to California. :-D But I love snow on cards.

Gorgeous snowflake card. Despite living in the Southern Hemisphere I suspect that I will go with snow, snowflake or snowman! I'm off to get some inspiration now!

Gorgeous card! I love snowflakes on cards. Winter themed cards I like a lot. My Mom and I always like seeing them better than actual Christmas theme card. To me snow says Christmas, sharing, Cocoa and warmth. Edwina Brown

SUPER ELEGANT snowflake cards Beccy :)
Snow is a long trip for us even to catch some fleeting "sightseeing snow" AND I have to confess that I would LOVE to see some today as we're sweltering with a humid 34oC here today!

I so love snowflakes! We once rented a small bus. The weather was very hot and we couldn't find the AC. When we returned the bus we reported it to the garage. They looked surprised and pointed to a button with a snowflake....we just searched for the letters AC. Since I adore snowflakes.
Enjoy your day!
