Week 2 A Christmas Carol

Well lo and behold I found another Christmas challenge blog.
It is call Winter Wonderland
The theme this week was to represent a Christmas Carol. I choice to use Frosty the Snowman as I love snowmen.
Anyway I hope you like ole Frosty!!!!

The stamp was unmonted, unlabeled one I found in my big bag of unmounts.
The Frosty the Snowman is a font printed from my computer
the snowflakes where cut with sizzix machine and the 3-D snowman are Jolee embellishment. I colored with Sharpie markers

The inside I used my label nestie, and more snowflakes and the other Jolee embellishment. The name Frosty was the bottom of a snowman stamp that I have.

That's all folks as I worked in my art area today--didn't even make a dent but at least got started.

Thanks for stopping by--til next time---

Hello Everybody

Hello out there in blogland....

Well I have decided to build a blog devoted to the Holidays. It is the first of June and time for me to start my Christmas cards for 2009. I get bored working on the same type of cards for long periods of time, so I mix things up--I might do Christmas today, flowers tomorrow and something else the next day. I am hopeing to add a couple times a week at least though.

Holidays doesn't just mean Christmas--I will be posting cards for all of the holidays--but more Christmas than the others. Lets face it--we all send more Christmas cards than cards for the other holidays.

So for today I did get three cards done between last night and day. Hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping by--and please come again.
