Snowbuddy Christmas

Hi Everyone.  I do hope you enjoyed your weekend and are ready to start another week.  I don't know about you but I'm not looking forward to the shorter days of sunlight.  By 7:30 it's dark here.  Oh well, grin and bear it and look forward to March. 

The first monthly Hostess Club was a success from all aspects.  Everyone had fun, lots of chatter (friends catching up after the summer) and the 3 cards and 3-D item that we created.  Yeh! for stamping.

The card this evening is a Christmas card (trying to get ahead of the game, if that is even possible).

The Snow Buddy stamp set is so cute and you will see him and his Snow Buddy in other posts.

I also used the new Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon.  It is so soft and just says Christmas.  The card is also sprayed with the Champagne Shimmer Mist which is diluted with rubbing alcohol.

  2. Sweet, sweet image you used and I love the colors. Great card for the holidays.

  3. What great colors and layout for this fun snowman card! Perfect for the holidays, Karen!!

  4. So cute and perfect for the holidays! Love that image and was just giving that set the "eye" last night.

  5. This is a delightful card Karen! I love the snowman and the colors you used. I agree with ou about it getting dark so early, I hate to see summer end. Winter is way too long for me. I am a warm weather girl.

  6. OH! what lovely snowflakes! They remind me of a few felt ones I have tucked away. I need to remember them and use them!!

  7. Karen this is too cute!
    I just LOVE snowman ... and yours is darling. Love the coloring and the pearly snowflake is the finishing touch.
    PS: I have to try your tip about diluting the shimmer mist with alcohol. Sounds great, as sometimes I think I overspray things, and this might be my saving grace! Hugs.


I am grateful for all comments and thanks for taking the time to leave one.
