RRCB77 & Challenge 35 ~ Whoosh Snowman

This is surely an oldie but goldie stampin up set from 1998 called Whoosh snowman.  I will always remember the first year I got it, I made all our Christmas cards.. they were so awful, I'd be embarrassed to show all you fine card crafters.. but I will show the picture of my little darlings that I added in it.. It was a homemade picture card, so I had our kiddos decked out with matching scarfs and hats.   I can't believe that was nearly 20 years ago.  My how time really truly "whooshes" by.  Just think our kids our both in their twenties now.     I keep this sweet little picture frame up all year round.  It has taken a few tumbles from the bookshelf.  But it's holding together.    
 The card is quite simple, I really like the background paper.  I just tore the white snow hill, someday I will invest in those amazing dies that create the lovely snow, grass hills, but for now, the old fashion tear method has to work for me.  I colored in the snowman and cut him out carefully as not to take off the skis and poles. 
I will be submitting this card to the following challenges:
