Hello! It's a beautiful day here in Northern Michigan. We still have snow on the ground (and ice in the driveway), but the sun has been shining for most of the week. It got up to 40 degrees the other day, and I was feeling nostalgic with past springtime memories.
Before I move on to sharing some springtime/floral cards with you, I wanted to share some of my favorite winter cards with you. Other than the stamp of the months, I focused primarily on the Winter Penguins set in the January/February book. It was fun to pair them up with (retired) paper collections and embossed cardstock. They really can be combined with anything, not just winter paper.
