No, not really. In fact, it's supposed to be quite warm this week...mid 60s for Thanksgiving. Oh well, I can dream. It's challenge #29 over on the CCCc2 challenge hosted by Linda of StudioL3. You'll find the instructions for using Tim's Texture Fade embossing folders to create 2 techniques on page 64 of his 2nd book..
I've used both methods on this #8 tag. I wanted to see if I preferred one over the other...and I think I do. The first one he describes was used on the large tag and tag topper. The second idea is on the snowman inset.
