It's a "Sassy" Blizzard...brrrrr

Please scroll down to see today's
"Magnolia-licious" card!

Hello again!! Soooo...have you started gearing up for the cold weather that is sure to come as we get deeper into the month of December?? It's been sooooooo cold here in Richmond, VA...in the 50's &  60's F! hehehe! Generally speaking, our weather is pretty mild...and we don't often get huge blizzards!! BUT...there's some serious weather happening over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog this week!! That's right!! Our very own "sassy" and talented Miz Judy is hostess again this week...and she's chosen for our challenge theme...

(a.k.a. White on white)

Hmmm...well...I know I have dozens of Sassy Cheryl digi images...but, not quite the one I wanted for this week's challenge! hehehe!! So, a shopping I did go! Straight over to Sassy Cheryl's online store...and, as luck would have it, I found the perfect Sassy Sally image...and here's what I came up with....

This little cutie patootie is called " Sassy Sally Plays a Trick" and she's available at Sassy Cheryl's HERE!! That Sally...she's up to no good...again! hehehe!! Don'tcha just love that crooked (and kinda sinister) little smile of hers?? Bwahahahaha!!

I have to admit..."white on white" has always been such a challenge for me...but thanks to embossing folders and pearls, I was able to"jazz" this card up just a wee little bit!! Here's a peek at the inside...

Here's my card "recipe"...

Cardstock: Neenah White
Snowflake embossing folders: Cuttlebug
Flower thingie: Prima
Sentiments & pearls: my stash
Banner stamp: hAnglar & sTanglar
Snowflake edge punch: Martha Stewart
Liquid Applique for the fur trim

And one last photo...the "artsy fartsy" one...

Okey dokey...now it's time to pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog to check out all the "snowy" creations by my talented DT "Sassettes"!! Then, we'd love for you to come join the fun! Just remember to follow this week's "White on white" theme. You don't even have to use a Sassy Cheryl image...tho we love when you do!! Oh, and...don't forget to link your finished project to this week's challenge...because one lucky participant (selected at random) will win a $5.00 digi credit to spend at Sassy Cheryl's Digis Online Store HERE!!

I've decided to enter this card in the following challenges...
