Tis The Season

I can hardly believe it's been about a week since I posted anything! I'll bet you're just as busy as I am...you're just better at managing your time. *wink*

I have been creating cards, but I have also been: decorating the tree, Christmas Shopping, Christmas cards, baking, 5th grade homework, etc. My DH has also been working over time, which means I have less time for blogging. Oh well...I'm here now.

I am a big fan of snowmen, so I am a bit partial to these next two cards. Both cards use images from SU, and I've added snowflake embellishments from WalMart (card 1) and Martha Stewart punched snowflakes (card 2).

Stamps: Merry & Bright
Card Stock: River Rock, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Confetti White
Ink: StazOn Timber Brown, Old Olive, Pretty In Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Going Gray, Stardust pen, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Snowflakes (WalMart), Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon, Bashful Blue brad, Spellbinders Labels 1, Tombo Multi glue, Stampin' Dimensionals


Stamps: Punch Pals, Twill, Holiday Cheer (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Ripe Avocado, Real Red, Neenah Natural White, Vintage Cream (PTI)
Ink: Black, Copic markers
Accessories: Scalloped Square Nestabilities, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, 2-way glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, Rain Dots, A Muse ribbon, Scotch foam tape

Thanks so much for checking in to see what I'm up to!!
Rose Ann

I'm with you on loving snowmen, Rose Ann! I love to place my stuffed snowmen around the den, and I adore that they don't appear to be out of place if I leave them up for a few days in January. hee hee

I love snowmen, too, and these are adorable. I have that little "Merry and Bright" one and he's seen lots of ink in the last two years. I have a collection of snowmen.

I love snowmen too so I'm definitely in love with these 2 cards! I LOVE the color combo of the first one and the fact that you used a Nestie for the card base. The second snowman just makes me want to smile!!! He's too adorable!
