........and we're off!~

Today marks the official start of the Christmas Season and I wanted to share a Christmas card.  We had a gorgeous snowfall a few days before Thanksgiving, and it is still with us, along with some frigid temperatures.  So I thought a snowman card would be appropriate.

Christmas Greetings

Isn't this Snow Family adorable?  (I got mine at Simon Says Stamp, but it has disappeared now).   I decided to color it using the color scheme from Doodlebug Design's Home for the Holidays papers that were part of the Simon December Card Kit.  (the striped panel is one of them).  I used markers to color, a mix of Spectrum Noirs and Letrasets, and added a bit of prisma glitter on the snowflakes and along the ground.  Other elements come from Simon's Christmas Sentiments stamps and die, Penny Black's Snowflake Trio die, cut from silver foil cardstock, and Doodlebug Ladybug Doodle twine.

Thanks for visiting today.  I'll see you again on Sunday with a sad announcement.
