Merry Monday #103 {Use a Snowman!}


Welcome back to my blog and to another challenge at Merry Monday! This is the challenge all about Christmas cards and getting a head start on the Christmas season. This week's challenge was chosen by Kathy. You are to create a project which includes a "Snowman" somewhere on your Christmas card!


Here is my card with a few snowmen on it *wink* Most of my crafty friends know that I am totally ADDICTED to snowmen (and snowflakes, and stars.....and.....)


This cute image is a Cheryl Alger digi called "Hanging Stars" and I absolutely love coloring these fun dudes :) I colored them up with bright Copic markers, added some Paper Smooches snowflake dies and my fun die cut arrow from Reverse Confetti! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink - I love this font!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Completely Christmas - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge - D is for diecuts
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Anything Goes - Lots of Layers!
Just Add Ink - Lots of Layers!
QKR Stampede - Recipe challenge: 1 image; 2 papers; 3 embellies (I used button, gems and die cuts)
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes: Christmas!

Thanks again for visiting my blog to see what I've been up to! Stay tuned for another installment from The Pink Elephant ;) Cheers!
