BRRR.....

It's been on the cold side the past few days here in Western Pennsylvania! I love the snow but can do without the frigid temps.

I created this cute banner for a very special person, my BFF, Linda. 
We have been friends for quite a long, long time, since high school. In fact, it has been 41 years! (Oops, I did it again...revealing my age!) She hung the banner on her fireplace. I thought that was the perfect placement!  
The photos are courtesy of her husband Norm...kudos to him because I of course forgot to take pics (again) before giving!

I used the Cricut Winter Woodland cartridge for the letters, snowflakes, matting and base.
The patterned paper is the Mistletoe collection from Bo Bunny. The gold glitter cardstock from my stash. The white cardstock was embossed using Sizzix Textured Impressions ~ Swirly Vine embossing folder.

I would like to enter this into:
FCCB Challenge #191 Anything but a Card, Holiday Ed.
and



Happy Crafting !
