Frosty Fun Wishes! -Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #67 -Beat The Winter Blues!


Time is flying by fast...too fast!! I can't believe it will be Christmas in 3 weeks!! And I'm still trying to get Christmas cards done...lol. I told myself that I will not give out store bought cards this year!

We did manage to get our Christmas tree up over the weekend...it's a fake one, so it's easy...lol. I actually let the boys take total control this year and they did a really good job...I didn't even have to rearrange anything!

The boys made their Christmas lists like they do every year and you will not believe what my 9 year old wants...I still can't believe it! Well he will be 10 in January. He put only 3 things on his list, which were; Halo Legos, Hot Wheels and the last being that he wants Santa to make him 18!! We were like what??!! Not sure if we read it correctly, so we asked him about it and he got all shy and hid himself...he came back with a piece of paper and on it he wrote that he wants to be 18 to get a girlfriend faster!!! I'm still in shock...lol...isn't 9 a little young to be thinking about girls?? But on the other hand I guess it's a good thing that he thinks he has to be 18 to have a girlfriend...and I will have him keep thinking that way...lol!! Don't know where he got that one from?!

Onto my card I have to share with you today and what you're really here for! It's Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays! This week our hostess is Cor and she came up with a super fun theme for the next 2 weeks!! She even came up with a cute little poem too...

Beat The Winter Blues

.....make it blue, make it white on white, make it Christmas, make it a snowball fight, make it monochromatic.......interpret how you like, but IT MUST CONTAIN BLUE and SOMETHING WHITE!

Here's a little inspiration to get you started...


Cor also has an inspiration pic to help you out...



Aren't those snowmen just the cutest?!! You can find the image called 'Snow Friends' in the Prairie Fairy Designs shop HERE


And the sentiment is from my 'Snowflake Seals' set which can be found in the shop HERE! Be sure to snag up the Christmas freebies I have on my blog HERE!
