Day 2 Let it Snow

day 2 25days-300

Good morning crafty friends,
Welcome to Day 2 of our 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun Showcase.
day 2 let it snow
Today’s theme is all about the frosty goodness that comes with this holiday season!
I have always loved the look of fresh fallen snow. Some of my fondest memories of childhood and early married life include moments of peering out the window on a chilly morning and seeing the beautiful, sparkly blanket of fresh fallen snow. The bite in the air and the crunch under your feet….priceless!!!

So to warm your heart on those frosty days….Here are some lovely projects today’s designers came up with!
