Snow Dots Christmas

Yes, you read that right. It's January, and I've got a Christmas card to share. At the Inspired Crafters blog, we are running various challenges all year long. One of the challenges will be Christmas cards to work on throughout the year, so in December we don't have such a mad rush going to get things done! You can see our first card sketch here. Here is what I made with it:


My friend Michelle, a "non-coloring gal," sent me this snowman from the PTI holiday button bits set. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I'd be using the little snowman (finally)!!! I love how it turned out, and yes, I love all the pink and red. I plan on using the sketch again, this time with the Santa. I had planned to do that last night, but my desk was so messy at the end of this card, I couldn't stand the thought of cleaning it all up to make another one.

Stamps: PTI Holiday Button Bits, Studio G Sentiment
Ink: PTI True Black, Pure Poppy, RV 10, Rv13 copics
CS: PTI White, Hibiscus Burst, Pure Poppy
Accessories: Glitter Glue, Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Snow Dots Cuttlebug Folder, Hibiscus Burst Saddle-stitch ribbon

OK why didn't I know you were on this Inspired Crafter's thing? You're keeping secrets, grasshoppah! Or I could have missed a memo.... Love the pink and the red on this - and all that white, so wintery - just perfect for that cute little big belly button snowman! Can't wait to see Santa! (Am I the only person that types too fast and sometimes typos Santa as Satan? - ROTFL)

Perfectly lovely Christmas card! I love the snowman and the color scheme! I used to be a non-coloring gal myself and now I have..uh, 70-80 copics. I've lost count and they add up quick! I still feel like I only have a "few".
