Magical Winter Snowflakes

Although we don't get snow in my area, we are only 3 hours from the Sierras, where COVID has closed the hotels and restaurants, but not the ski areas.  It's definitely a cold winter, with the fireplace going every night and winter movies on the TV.  
While we daydream of sledding and snowboarding, we have selected our challenge for the next two weeks as "Magical Winter Snowflakes".  Use your Cricut to make a card, project, or layout that includes snowflakes.  You do not have to have a blog to link up your artwork, an Instagram, Pinterest, or YouTube account will work great.  You have until January 31st to show us your creation; until then, take a look below at what our wonderful design team has created.
Maureen - Frozen, When It's Cold Outside

Kim- Frozen

Die-lirious Winners!

 Good morning all,  I want to thank all the crafters who took time to enter our collaborative challenge with Double Trouble Challenge. We had 75 entries, wow!  With that said, it was a difficult decision to choose a I chose 6 WINNERS!  There were so many beautiful projects, some intricate and some simple.  I love all styles, I hope the winner choices reflect the best of the best no matter the style.

Without further no particular order.

Christi at Art without Anxiety really made this slimline unique.  I appreciate all the birds with their unique coloring.  The background, the clouds, the frame all perfect for this card.  Great Job!

Bonnie at Craftiblog created a unique fold card with fantastic elements.  The pinecone layers are divine and everything pulls together with that awesome plaid background paper. I love that this one uses a Cricut!

Inkami entered several projects, while I loved the Joy shaker tag, this CAS snowman card really captured my heart.  Perhaps because I can never keep anything that white! Thanks for all your entries!

Cricut Crafty Clare created a phenomenal layout with Anna Griffin Cricut images.  This layout is so elegant. The colors and papers were all perfect choices for the intricate images.  Perfect holiday layout! 

KT Kitty  created this lovely tag.  The inking and images are just beautiful. The choice to emboss the silver tree on top of the ink was a perfect. I am not even a cat person but this tag is super cool!

Suzanne at iluvscrapping2 dusted off her Cricut for this adorable ornament. Check out the beautiful details.  The glitter, the gingerbread people, and the tiny candies are amazing!  I want to disclose Suzanne is blog owner of Double Trouble Challenge, but the choice was purely on merit.  I mean this ornament is amazing AND uses a Cricut (even though it wasn't required).

Again, thanks to all who joined, it was such a hard choice to narrow it down to 6.  We appreciate your entries and please join us again (using your Cricut).

Don't forget to join the current challenge Get Well Wishes.
