Baby it's cold outside

Well, actually it isn't cold outside at all. We are having a rather strange winter over here in Cambridgeshire at the moment, the sun is shining and it's rather warm. Not that I'm complaining, we are saving on heating bills and not having to freeze your fingers off while scraping the car windows in the morning is a definite plus. Now if spring would only hurry up so there would be more light in the evenings that would be great. Thanks.

Today's card is inspired by all the "wintery" themed challenges out there. I do love the Critters in the Arctic stamp set from Lawn Fawn and it has been getting a lot of use lately in the InvisiblePinkCraftRoom. And this time is no exception. I love the little hat stamp, it's just sooo adorable. 

This card is inspired by several challenges. The layout is inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. The colours are from the super comfy looking scarf in the inspiration picture over at Curtain Call. The background was inspired by the stencil theme over at CAS on Sunday. I was also inspired by the winter themes over at Crafty Creations (Brrrr the Blues) and The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers (W is for Wow it's cold).

I am enjoying your happy walrus. I am having an "ice" day, it's snowing here and is very lovely--especially since it melts on the ground right away! Thanks for playing along at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.
