It's Time for Christmas Cards!

I know, I know....Christmas just ended.  I just took down my Christmas tree, and I mourned that by making my first Christmas cards of 2011!  Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge this week was to use snowmen in our creations:

This is Mr Snowman, a digital image from Digistampcharacters by Heather Ellis.  I just LOVE this adorable snowman!  I printed him out onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored him in with my copics.  I put a few coats of clear glaze on the heart to make it shine.  This awesome sketch is Mercy's LAST Tuesday sketch challenge.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to play along while she was still creating these sketches, but I went and downloaded ALL of them, so I can go back and use them!

I cut Mr Snowman out using my Square Nestabilities, then pierced around the edges.  The DP used on this card is from Crate Paper Snow Day.  This is one of my favourite Christmas papers.  I love the non-traditional colours in it!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Monday!

Supplies
Stamps - Mr Snowman (Digitalstampcharacters)
Paper - Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Taken with Teal, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Crate Paper Snow Day
