Hubert is in the snow

SNOW.  That is the design requirement for the current challenge over on GingerLoft Challenges.
Definitely NOT what we have here!  110 MPH winds, 3 inches of rain in 2 days, flooding, roads washing out, sink holes.  Now that we have, and have had for a week now.  UGH!

Today, at least, it is only windy.  Not much rain, and believe me, we don't need any more rain for a couple of days!  One town just north of me had 4.95 inches of rain in 24 hrs.  TOO MUCH!

But I digress.  SNOW is the concept for this challenge.  What better way to showcase snow than with some snow flakes and a couple of penguins all ready to start their snowball fight.

I used some sticky back half pearls for the stack of snowballs!  Thought it was a cute idea.
The snow flakes are one of the Michaels $1 punches and some glitter paper.
The die cut is Spellbinders, the sentiment is punched with the SU word window.
The sentiment is from Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs. 
The ribbon is from my stash and I followed directions from a tutorial over at Dustin Pikes place,
The snow flake brad is from my stash.
The DP is DCWV photo stack.  The is torn vellum under their feet for ice and snow.
Colored with copics, SU dazzling diamonds glitter is everywhere.

Hope everyone is have a safe and dry January!
