CAS(E) This Sketch #102

Being a CTS Favorite is always such a wonderful surprise!  I do love surprises!  Learning that we all will enjoy the wonderful Hannalie as a new DT member at CAS(E) This Sketch is also a fantastic surprise - I adore her style!  Congratulations, Hannelie!

It is NO surprise that I love to play along and Gayatri's sketch this week caught my interest immediately:

 
GD Susie's wonderful inspiration card had me reaching for my snowflakes!!  I also received a darling little die set from Mama Elephant this week.  Talk about surprises - when I cut their Peek a Frame die, I thought I'd done something wrong - not a bit... it's a window that opens!  [Insert me smacking myself upside the head - it clearly mentions this in the product description - duh!]
 
For CTS#102, Hannelie, and Susie:
 

 
 
 
Supplies: SSS Smokey Slate CS.  Reverse Confetti Snowflakes.  PTI sentiments.  Clearly Besotted tree line. 
 
We've had a little bit of snow, too! 
But I have my craft to keep me warm =]

Wow, Michele!!!! This is absolutely fantastic! I love that the window opens, and with the little scene behind it's just out of this world. I see another surprise in store. ;-)
