Smiley Snowman

Hello! I wanted to get this card posted earlier but with the blog hop Tue and then my Mom calling yesterday wanting to go Christmas shopping it never happened! I didn't get much accomplished with my shopping but I helped Mom get a good start on hers. I'm sure not much in the Christmas spirit yet?? Maybe it's just that we've had such a warm fall and it doesn't look or even feel like it's almost Christmas??!! I haven't even come up with my Christmas card yet for this year!

On with my card, I have once again used the adorable snowman from the Welcome Jesus set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Everytime I see him he makes me smile! He is also available as a digi. I tore some white CS and coated the edges with Stickles to make my snowdrifts. I also added some stickles around the edges of the snowman. I added some rhinestones to my big snowflake and also to some of the snowflake centers on my embossed BG piece. This card really sparkles!!! List of challenges and supplies used is below. Thanks for stopping by and if you haven't entered in the SNSS Birthday Blog Hop yet you still have time (It's in the post below this one) I will be drawing a winner tomorrow evening!

Hi Janice, Love all the sparkles on your card and what snowman shouldn't live among sparkles. :)

I know what you mean about the warm fall. I am ready for the cooler weather myself.

Have a great day.
