Winter Scene Using Jolly Holidays

Weeee, I'm having so much crafting these days. I just love this time of year when I am feeling really inspired. The project I'm sharing today is what came to my mind when I saw a Cricut Lite cartridge called Jolly Holidays at Walmart on Black Friday. The cartridge was on sale and that was my only reason for stepping foot into that store on Black Friday. Hee, hee. Actually, I lucked out as I went in later in the day and there was no line! Anyway, one of the cuts is the snowman on ice-skates. That little guy got my mind to whirling and what I'm sharing today is the result. I'm thrilled to pieces with the final project. Hope you like it, too. All the cuts you see are from this one cartridge. I think I got my money's worth, and there are lots more fun cuts I would love to try!
I found the great frame at the thrift store for $1. {score}Of course, there was no back and no glass, but that should be easily remedied.

I love the houses and the lamp posts.
The houses are cut at 3 inches and the lamp posts are cut at 2 inches. 
That little guy on the left is what started it all! Both are cut at 3 inches.The little girl's outfit just makes me smile.  The frozen pond has a layer of vellum over the blue cardstock. I ran the vellum through my xyron so I wouldn't have issues with adhesive showing.
This little guy just had to have a hill to ride his sled. Wheeeeeee....
Amy told me he was gonna slide right into the skaters, but I think they'll be safe.
This one is cut at 2 inches
There are a few different tree cuts, but I thought this one would work best. At the last minute I added the stickles to the branches and really like how it looks.

Most of the papers I used are from DCWV, with the exception of the blue. Those are from Martha Stewart. I used felt for the snow.

Thanks so very much for stopping by! 
I hope you have a great start to your weekend.
Amy's final game of this session is tomorrow. 
Hopefully, they'll end with a win.
