Shopping Our Stash challenge 80

 Hi friends!

Back with another Shopping Our Stash challenge!
This week's theme is:
Snow/Winter or Christmas/Hanukkah


So I thought it was about time for a couple of my Insane snowmen cards, this is the first I made: 

SO there's a story behind this card, and if you follow me on twitter, you'd know it because I mentioned it last week.  I used to be really great friends with a guy who was a singer (we were singing partners actually), and he sang ALL. THE. TIME (but honestly, so did I)...

One day, around Christmas time, we were walking through a shopping centre together, and  just wandering along aimlessly.  After a few minutes, I realised that he was singing to the Christmas music that was playing over the speakers. The song was Oh Christmas Tree. He was singing "Oh Christmas Tree" over and over and over. (literally, those three words only). He sang the ENTIRE song, using only those words. lol

You can guess from the card what my response was.

I thought it'd be funny to have someone calling a normal tree, a Christmas tree, then I remembered that story, and this card was born :)



Love using Rock Candy stickles as snow :)


That's it!

Be sure to pop by the blog to see what the DT has made!

We'd love it if you would enter the challenge too :) can't wait to see what you make!

Yup, cute card! And that is EXACTLY how we all feel sometimes when people go overboard repeating a favorite "something"! Thanks for the chuckle.
