Hoooooo.....Cozy Winter Owl DT card

It's time for our second challenge at the Craft Us Crazy challenge blog. We had such a huge response to our very first challenge. Thank you so much to all who entered. For this challenge we want you to show us your Winter creations.
Our sponsor for this challenge is the FABulous Meljen's Designs.

Meljen's Designs so generously gave me this adorable Cozy Winter Owl graphic to play with. Isn't he a cute little guy!

This card reminded me of those of you who have been struggling through these cold & snowy winter months so I thought I'd use Create with TLC's cute saying "Happy Freezin Season" (now don't throw any frozen ice at me......only soft snowballs.....LOL). You can find this cute saying & so much more at the Create with TLC's store & please visit Paulette's amazing Create with TLC blog. She is so very generous with her graphics & sentiments.

I'm entering these challenges:
Friday Sketchers: Sketch 141 (I flipped it on it's side) Well shoot........I guess I just missed the deadline on this one. Oh well........I enjoyed using this sketch anyway.

Paper Sundae's challenge #56 Pick your sundae toppings: choose 2 of the following: flowers, lace, distressing or pink (I used flowers, lace & distressing but no pink for this little guy unless you count his flushed cheeks...LOL)
