Sledding Snowman

     I know everyone has been getting into the Christmas Card season and I'm lagging behind but that's only because I made so many last year that I have more than I need for this year, including sending a small box to Operation Write Home and donating a couple of dozen to my local assisted care facility.  Never-the-less, I did make this one because I love snowmen and this image, by Whoopsi Daisy, was just too cute to resist!  Don't you just love his crowning wreath of holly leaves?

     I colored the image with ProMarkers and added sparkle to the snowman and the snowflakes with glitter gel ink.  The background dp is from DCWV (2 years old at least!) and the ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon (they're brand new!)  The lace, the bows, and the sparkly snowflake are from my Christmas stash.

     I'll be back in my crafting chair this weekend, making more cards and doing some Guest Designer projects for September.  You can read more about that on Sunday.  :-D  In the meantime, thanks for visiting.  Feel free to browse around while you're here.  If I seem to have missed visiting your blog this week, my apologies.  I plan to get caught up with everyone as soon as I can.  It's terrible when there are only 24 hours in a day and I need to sleep at least 5 of those!  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

How cute this little guy is, Connie! Love that he is on a sled and wears a wreath on his head! Really fun image! Your card looks amazing with all the layers and special touches. You're so incredible to have even made a box of cards for OWH - I have only made one Christmas card this year! Yikes! LOVE the DP - isn't it great to use long-lost papers like that? I want to use mine up. LOL have a great week-end, Connie! hugs, de

Snowmen are my favorite images. This one with the wreath around his head is just adorable. Nicely finished off with ribbon and your paper is great.
