Crazy weekend!!

I was super busy with a Basketball tournament for Jordan in Brantford this weekend....after a crazy week with swimming and a volleyball tournament with the school which went until 9pm on Tuesday...Getting the kids up for school on Wednesday was a challenge to say the least...and they still aren't making the bus!

We also had snow which made the drive to Brantford a little slow but it wasn't too bad.

I've got another Christmas card for you today...I have made some new cards but I figure I may as well get the older ones out of the way first...I love this digital image from Sassy Cheryl...Figure 8 snowman. I went with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square card for him since the image is pretty big. I coloured with copics to match the striped dp from Kaiser. The other patterned paper is Basic Grey, eskimo kisses which is a couple of seasons old... I even added some flocking around the bottom of his coat and on his hat to make them look "fluffy".

The sentiment is from an old SU set and I added the bow to the top of the oval. I used Stamping Bella's crackle dots (pickle I think...) along the top edge. I really like how he turned out...colours and everything...I liked all my Christmas cards this year...but I think he is one of my fav's!!

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Those kids aren't letting you get bored! This is a great snowman!!!

  2. Sounds like you need to clone yourself for all the kids activities!! LOL!!! What a fun those big skate blades!!

  3. Karen got me started on making my Christmas cards in January - a few a month - then when December rolls around you're all set. I have to say, it works!! This snowman is strangely cute, and I mean that in a good way :). He's gangly but cute! Love the colours you used too!
