Baby, it's cold outside!

Hi everyone, hope you all having a good weekend and keeping warm! It's proper cold here today and we had our first frost yesterday. Can't believe it's 3rd December already - have you all got your shopping done? No, me neither...........i think the best i can hope for this year is to get all pressies bought and wrapped before kiddos break up from school on Dec 16th! Wish me luck! So, today's card is my fav style  - i love easel cards - especially scallop circle ones lol! I've "stickled" all around the circles and glittered the fur on the eskimo's clothes for a bit of extra bling and isn't that snowflake die cut just gorgeous?
Have a great evening.
