Merry Christmas Snowman

The holiday countdown as begun.

I have been working feverishly to complete my holiday cards, I think I am almost done. 

This year I decided to use my stash of Christmas card kits to make all my cards.  I thought this would be easier than 'mass' producing a single card, so far so good. I prefer to create non-traditional colored Christmas cards.

I love the layout of this card and sparkly ribbon on the side. 

The image was a little big, but I think it works well.

This card was a pile it on challenge for myself and I think I did pretty good...wink....wink!!!

Ah girl I'm feeling you. It is taking me forever to finish up our Christmas cards this year. This is the first that I have handmade ALL of them so I'm a tad overwhelmed. I think I have about 10 more to do.

Very cute card, love this snowman.
