Be Sure to Hug a Snowman this Christmas...
It must be something about the cold mornings (just 3 degrees first thing yesterday here) and the kids going back to school, but I am in Christmas mode at the moment. At the Craft Barn last week I bought a stunning new 6x6 Basic Grey pad called Jovial, the snowman design looked made for my image, which is another Phindy's Place Christmas image called Back to Nature. The sentiment came from House Mouse, it's part of the new unmounted rubber sheets and again, it's a perfect match for my image:).
I wanted to use my new Nesties again (thank you Simon Says!) and found this very pretty sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp, a new site to me. I used some of my treasured red velvet ric-rac on the card, so I'm entering the Basic Grey "use fabric" challenge and Cute Card Thursday's Material Girl Challenge. The flowers were also from Craft Barn, I coloured clear rhinestones and the scrolls were made with a Woodware punch. Can't make a Christmas card without Stickles, lots of sparkly, snowy Stickles on the image too:)
I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
Wild Orchid - Make it Sparkle & Christmas Card Challenges - Sparkle & Shine
Paper Sundaes and-Totally Gorjuss are both Christmas in August
Secret Crafter - Make a Start on Christmas
Winter Wonderland - All I want for Christmas - who could want more than friends? They are what make Christmas special:)
