Welcome to the "It's Cold Outside" blog hop!  This hop will be today, Saturday, January 7th and Sunday, January 8th.  If you came here from Ashley's blog, you are on the right track!  If you just happened find this, great, but you should start at Zenita's blog and hop on through!

We are very greatful to our wonderful sponsor, Visual Designs by Chris is donating a wonderful SVG file and we would like to thank Chris for this wonderful prize!

Now for my project for today, I have made a Winter layout:

I used last year's My Minds Eye Christmas papers and used my Cricut with the following cartridge:

Winter Frolic

The edges were inked with Colorbox Chalk Inks and for the little boy's face, I used a Peachy Keen stamp.  Stickles in Waterfall and Black Diamond added some sparkle to the little boy and Gell Doll White pen was used for the white stiching.

Thank you for hoping along and in case you get lost, here is the hop line up:
