Snowman




Since we have had snow forecast and as I haven't made many Christmas cards this year, I decided to make one today. No snow as yet but it is bitterly cold with heavy showers of rain.

Thanks to everyone for all the encouraging comments I really appreciate them.

Will be taking our son to Huntly to catch the 15.45 to Aberdeen so will probably do a shop and treat myself to a comforting sweet. Hubby is working in Aberdeen till 23.00 which is when James finishes so they will come home together.

This is the most adorable card. I love the colors and the bird on top of the hat makes it stand out.

Making Christmas cards all year round has its advantages, not only are you more prepared when the time arrives, but you also get cards that look different. Like this one, colors are influenced by spring, purposefully or not, and I really like these non traditional colors for this design.

Karen D said...

Such a gorgeous card using a fun stamp. I love the colours and the shape.
