Frosty Snowflakes

Happy April!  Three months gone in 2014; how's your Christmas card stash coming?  If you've been playing along with us at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, then you have gotten a good jump on them.  If you haven't been playing, now is a great time to start.  The challenge is easy: anything Christmas goes and you have all month long to play along.
 I just love this cute little snowman!  I used him and these glittery snowflakes to create a little wintery scene.  Fun!  The patterned oval was from my bits and pieces stash and as promised last month, here is a picture of the stash.  I'm going to try to remember to update it every month.
 I added a picture of what the stash looked like at the beginning of March:
Unfortunately, I have added a few items to the stash this month, but I have actually managed to use up a lot of the items in it.  Do you have a stash like this?  Maybe it's time to give yourself the challenge of using it up.  It's kind of fun. : )  Now, go get started on those Christmas cards and then link it up with as at CHNCC2.
