It was snowing...

Yesterday that is when I sat down to make these cards...Today as I am posting this it is a balmy 4 degrees...The kids decided it was sooooo warm they shouldn't have to wear coats to school...Nice try but no dice!!

The kids actually made the bus worked out perfectly 'cause I was meeting a friend for coffee and for once I wouldn't be late! It was kinda weird having time to myself without the rush of getting them to school I actually felt like something was twisted is that!!??

Anyway, I did take some time yesterday to make a card..well two actually but they are almost the same. I used one of the digi snowmen I have from Sassy Cheryl (it was snowing after all..) I used some of my MME Christmas DP for the background ( I cut out the part that had the giant Santa) and the polka dots is also MME from the laundry line series. I used SU's Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler for my layers and also inked around the image with Pool Party ink. On the one card I used my nesties to cut out and layer the image. I added some dazzling diamonds at his feet and all around the outline of the image. The rhinestones are Kaisercraft and the bow is SU's taffeta ribbon (it's riding hood red so it doesn't quite match...). On the second image I didn't leave enough space when I printed it so I ended up just cutting it to a square and layering it. I almost like this one better 'cause you can see the DP a little more. I used the same ribbon for the bow but added some glitter dots from Stamping Bella at the top of the image. The sentiment comes from an MFT a la modes set "Candy Cane Kisses".

Yay me, two Christmas cards ready to go..LOL
