As I write this post, it is 80 degrees outside, promising to go to 88 degrees by mid-afternoon.  Despite that, today's featured set is Please Snow, and I have two cards for you.  

For my first card, I stamped and cut out two of the snow people and mounted them in front of the cute little pine tree.  My sister recently gave me a whole stack of 12 x 12 Christmas card stock she no longer wanted. The snowflakes were the perfect background for my card.  I added some Polar White Flower Soft for the snow. 

My second card is the other snowman in this cute set.  I love his bow tie and furry hat.  

I decided to use this card for my June Christmas Card challenge cards over on Speedy TV, so I made four of them.  They actually went together pretty quickly.

I hope you've enjoyed this month's blog hop and will try to use some of our cards as the starting point for your creativity.  Be sure to check out the rest of the blogs in today's hop.

Here's the Design Team for today:
