Happy Snowman

Hello! Thanks for your visit today!

This is my new Christmas card...

I love to put snow in my cards! Where I live there is no snow at Christmas. It is a bit nostalgic thinking about Santa Claus in his sleigh on the snow and it was my frustrated desire since I was a little girl. I would love to see a little snow out my window, of course not much, because I have seen how some of my friends are suffering from the cold and heavy snowfalls, even before winter arrives.

I made this card using the Mojo Monday Sketch and the Happy Snowman, a drawing that I made for the occasion. I usually use typical colors on my Christmas cards, like green, red and gold, but in this case, as I will enter the card in other challenges, I used other colors.



Card supplies: Image © of EdithDesigns, German metallic blue and silver cardstock, K & Company Winter Wonderland designer paper, Sizzix Sizzlits snowflakes Die, snowflake punch paper, Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder, Duncan snow paint, translucent glitter paint, silver metallic ribbon and, of course, my sewing machine:)
