whimsy stamps challenge on SNR ~ let it snow

I made this card for the Whimsy Challenge over on SNR Universe, the theme is Let it Snow! I am not over Christmas yet so very happily made another Christmas card! I was so behind with everything this Christmas just gone that I am determined to be more organised for next year so will be making Christmas Cards all through the year, I have even started my Christmas shopping!
This card was therapy for me today. Our Mothers left after a 3 week visit and I missed them terribly when they went so I threw myself into making this card, even though my heart wasn't in it when I started, all teary eyed, but I was enjoying getting back to my crafting by the end.This is the first card I have made since they arrived as all my latest stuff I had made just before Christmas.
I would also like to enter this card into the Stamp with Fun challenge, my first time! their theme this week is 'snowflakes'

The stamp I used is Whimsy's fantastic Winter Raccoons, so love these two critters! You do need to use a Whimsy image to join in the challenge but if you don't own a stamp yet you can download a free digi just visit here!
It is well worth playing along, Denise is offering one lucky winner a $10 gift certificate to be spent in the Whimsy store!

Gorgeous card Deb. You sure are organised getting started on next christmas's cards and shopping already. Sorry to hear you are feeling a little sad after your mum's departure. I'm sure yo7 have lots of happy memories of the time she was with you though & hopefully it wont be too long until you see her again!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Deb your card is adorable! Your images are so darn cute and colored in beautifully! I wasn't able to get everything done this past Christmas either. I promised myself that this year would be totally different. Keep up the great work and way to go with early X-mas shopping!
