Quick little Snowman...Freshly Made Sketches, Merry Monday

Super quick post to share my 'using up last year's Christmas papers before diving into the stack calling my name' snowman card.  A simple little watercoloured dude that I'm entering into Merry Monday

(wish I could make a card that stunning!)

and Freshly Made Sketches...


Hmmm...a bit busy, but in real life, it's kinda-sorta cute with the popped up snowguy. A great opportunity to bring out the Christmas stamps, dust them off (along with my Christmas card-making skills) and have some fun!

My husband's home...yayyyy!!! And tomorrow, because he has to work (a 'summer' biathlon event...), I have some Halloween and Thanksgiving ideas to play with...and maybe more Christmas ones, too.

Thanks for dropping by; your visit adds sparkle to my day!

  2. Yay for the return of hubby! Hi hubby! :)

    All I can say is that I want to create Christmas cards too now. lol I love how you have used the patterned paper. I am hopeless at using more than one..in general...but this looks great. Maybe I am going to have to start modifying and adapting your cards... ;)

  11. I LOVE everything about this one! The plaid with the gingham work so well together and really bring out the Christmas sparkle in this card! And that show stealing snowman - oh, he is just the sweetest thing ever!!! I love how you distressed the white space behind him too - it gives it a very cool vintage look!!! xo
