Wow, another contest run!

Papertrey is so much fun with their continual contests.  I'm really trying to watch my spending, so the opportunities for gift certificates, combined with my external-motivation tendencies (that is, my need for a push to make the cards I need to be making for people), have made these contests so helpful to me!  This contest focuses on Design Team Tips by Melissa Philips, and taking inspiration from the samples she provided for the post.  The samples came from a die set called Stitched Coasters, and the quilt theme was prominent in the samples, so I went with my decorated refrigerator for my post!

My house has an impossible kitchen; it's somewhere around 125 square feet only, with FIVE door ways!  There is only one logical spot for my fridge, and it is the first thing one sees when entering my home.  Yuck!  So about 18 months ago I began (after over decade passed since I had first thought of the idea!!!), to decorate my fridge by season.  I had only managed fall, summer, and Christmas (Christmas gets its own special recognition as a season in my life!).  I had thought snowflakes would be appropriate for a winter them last year, but did not own any snowflake dies, so it never happened. Then I discovered Papertrey's Quilted: Winter die, and I immediately knew I had my winter theme!
For the text, I'd wanted to find a scripture referencing snow that wasn't closely tied with sin; and when I asked my husband, he teasingly suggested line from Frozen:  "The snow never bothered me any way," and I immediately switched gears to the lighthearted fun of this quote! I tried yesterday and today to get a good picture, but the position of the frig and the windows made for significant lighting issues, so I finally had to settle for these pics.
