I just can't seem to get enough of snowmen lately, maybe it has something to do with the snow that we've receive here so far. It hasn't been a lot, but enough to keep the ground so pretty and white.

My card is also for today's free for all challenge on splitcoast in which we were to create a holiday card in 15 minutes or less.  This was a real easy challenge for me because honestly with three kids I really don't have a lot of time to spend making my cards.  Aside of my coloring the rest of my card was easy and quick to makek.

This snowmen image is from one of my very first stamp sets I ever purchases. It's from an older SU stamp set called Best Borders. This set was perfect for one of my first sets because back then I didn't have a lot of tool or supplies so basically all I needed was to color in the snowmen, which is what I did here. I colored in their scarves and hats and then I added a little bit of glitter along the ground beneath them.

My background was embossed using my cuttlebug snow dots embossing folder- I don't use this folder nearly enough! My snowflake border punch is another item that I've hardly used and I thought it would be a perfect addition on my card. I punched some white card stock using the snowflake punch and then I layered it over my decorative paper. Next, I placed my finished image (layered onto the light blue card stock) over top of my white snowflake border card stock.

All I needed to do next was to add my silver elastic cording and my card was complete.  I'm sorry that my photo didn't turn out as nicely as I would have liked, for some reason the snowmen seemed a bit blurry, but you get the idea of my card (I hope).

Well, I have to run.  My son turns 6 years old today and I have to make him his birthday cake and get ready for his party!  I'll be sure to share a photo of him with you next week!  Have a great weekend!

This is adorable! I really like that Cuttlebug folder-I think I need it!

My first stamp set was Fanciful Flowers and I used my kid's Crayola markers to ink them 'cause I didn't have any stamp pads LOL!

Hi Patty, what a beautiful card! I've been loving snowmen too lately, I thought is was because I was in Arizona and don't get to see the real one's in person! Have a great weekend :)

Happy New Year! I am sitting in Seattle with a long layover, so I decided to try catch up on my blurfing!

I am so over snowmen, but probably because I have 5 more months of winter left!!! HA HA Cards like this with such adorable snowmen make me tolerate it much better though. :)
