Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #54: Snowman Theme....

Edited to add:  So excited to have received a shout out over at Merry Monday for this card among all of the incredible entries!  You can see the shout out post:  HERE if you would like to take a look at all of the beautiful cards highlighted! :)

Hello all,
Here with a very quick post as I am on my way out the door to Grandma's house to color Easter Eggs with the cousins.  Tim is so excited!!!

Yesterday I created a card for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #54: Snowman Theme

 Snowmen are one of my favorite things and yesterday morning we had a brief snow flurry here in Seattle which is a very, very rare thing!!!!  I wish the snow had stuck so we could have had a snowball fight but Tim and I did manage to make one snowball and snap a photo before school started!  Maybe I can share it in my next post if I get it uploaded to the computer!

Anyway...the snow inspired this little snowgirl card....I hand drew some eyelashes on her as I thought she should have long eyelashes to go with her boa!  This will be used as a special thank you note at Christmas Time....

The stamp set is called: Frosty and Fabulous Snowman and is from MFT....  

The stems and leaves for the button flowers on the left were made using Tag-its #5 stamp set from Papertrey those little $5.00 sets...they always have the best little stamps for adding special touches to my cards!!!
Above photo shows the copics I used to color the snowwoman if you are interested...I used a copic multi-liner to make the eyelashes...not shown.

The dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs - doily and scalloped and regular circle dies; and Lil Inker designs.  I am not sure what set that sentiment is from as this tag was already made and sitting on my desk from a previous card attempt!  PTI though I think!  Snow is made with glitter glue -  Stickles Diamond.  I have to add glitter to snowwoman cards - it is a must!!!

Thanks for looking at my card!


  1. I had to go back and peak at your craft space again.
    This snowman is adorable! I love the bits of glitter and that flower on her hat! Too cute! Snow! We are all spring...ed out here with lots of sun, but snow sounds kinda fun.
    I hope Tim has a blast with all the cousins and decorating eggs. Palm Sunday tomorrow… that came fast .
