Snowflakes and Snowmen

Well I knocked on wood after my last post but it didn't seem to matter. My husband has a nasty little cold and I am starting to have some scratchiness in my throat.... ya, I'm pretty sure scratchiness is not a proper word, but spell check says I'm good-to-go!
Anyway, the latest card I have done is yet another Christmas Beauty featuring snowflakes and my snowman family!!

The stamp is a High Hopes Stamp called "Snow Family" and it is colored with my tombow markers. The background DP is from The Paper Studio and the embellishments are dollar store buys. I used my Mainstays Glitter in Crystal to give the snowflakes on the DP a little POP and I outlined the snowmen with some Frosted Lace Stickles. I used an Ancient Page ink pad in Foxglove for my sentiment, the snowflakes surrounding the snowmen and to distress the edges of the card.
I love lavenders and light blues for Christmas cards....chilling, but sooo pretty!!!

Well keep taking your Vitamin C and gettin lots of rest to combat all these little bugs going around and I look forward to seeing more from everyone!!
Healthy Wishes~~~
