Teddy Bo Tuesday - A White Christmas

Will we or won't we, that's the big question, will we have a White Christmas, probably not! I love snow when it's falling and fresh on the ground, but once it turns to ice or slush then I'm not so keen, but I would love to wake up on Christmas morning and see a beautiful snowy day outside my window.  I'm lucky enough not to have to leave the house on Christmas Day, my family come to me, (on the downside I do have to cook Christmas dinner for everyone  though!). It wouldn't be so nice for those that have to travel to relatives houses for their Christmas dinner if it was snowy or icy.

Anyway all this is leading me onto the Teddy Bo Challenge this week which is

A White Christmas

We would love to see your interpretation of this theme, and if you need a little help, pop over to the Teddy Bo Challenge Blog and take at look at the fabulous inspiration from the DT.

I have used one of this weeks new images, and also borrowed a hat from one of the other new releases, I'm sure they won't mind though LOL!

Image - TEDDYBO_157 Coloured in Photoshop
Hat borrowed from TEDDYBO_158 and made to fit with a bit of photoshop jiggery- pokery
Blue card base - Nitwits Frost'n'flakes
Ribbon - MeiFlower
Card shape - GoKreate die
La Rue Flourish - Memory Box die
Embossing folder - Papermania - Snowflakes
Lots of Glamour Dust

I found a beautiful poem by Alice E Chase, called Baby's First Christmas and used it inside my card.
