My Sheri Crafts and Jitterbuggin

This card I am using for two challenges this week. First is for Jitterbuggin Sherri has the cutest sketch for us to follow. I think I say that about them all don't I?! I just love Sherri's sketches!! The theme is Let it Snow!
The rules are to follow the sketch, use 'blue' somewhere on your card and include something snow related-
snowman, snowflake, penguin, etc. All of Sherri's challenge require you to use a Cricut cut. You have until midnight tonight to link your card. So plenty of time still. Now for My Sheri Crafts challenge #39, the theme is Winter! You are challenged to show what winter is for you. Well I'm gonna tell ya'll that it usually doesn't snow here in Alabama. We might get a flake or two now and then but not a whole lot. Usually we get ice if we get anything. Well Christmas Day and the day after we got snow. How exciting for us!! A white Christmas!!! Then this past Sunday night it started snowing and right now we have around 8 or so inches on the ground. It's starting to melt but gosh it has been beautiful!!! Hope this is it for this year!! LOL So I had to use a snowwoman on my card and some snowflakes. I cut the darling little snowwoman from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. (Now that I have this cart, I'll be using it a lot I think!) I hid her little face on my Gypsy Girl so I could use this Peachy Keen Snow Cuties face on her. Doesn't she look happy?! I have a blade for my paper trimmer that cuts these swirl lines so I used it to make my snow for her to stand on. The snowflakes are from a MS punch. I then sprayed the snow, bg, snowflakes and snowwoman with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko. Love the shine it gave them!! I added these blue half pearls to the center of each snowflake. Last by not least I put this little pompom on the top of her hat. Oh yes, the sentiment. This is an awesome stamp that I picked up at Scrappin Kats. I'm sad to say that she had to close up shop. :(  Sheri posts a new challenge every Saturday so you have plenty plenty of time to link a project! So get busy making some awesome projects to share!! Hope ya'll like my card! :)
I don't know why this first photo has a yellow tint to it. I made it along with others this morning and this is the only one like this. I didn't realize it until I started my post. Sorry!! And you can't see the shimmer from the spritz either!!
