Snowy Wishes...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Can you believe tomorrow is December 1st!! EEK!!
It's hard to believe it's the end of the year already!
I swear I don't know where the time goes!

Well, all my holiday cards have been done for awhile
now, they are ready to go in the mail tomorrow!
I know you all are like WHAT? But I think that
Challenge I gave myself really worked and I still can't
believe they're all done! In fact...
I'm already starting on Next years batch!! OMGOSH!!

I think I've got at least 12 to 15 done and ready for next year!
I told my Hubby that I think I'll have the new batch done by July!
Hahaha - That would be crazy... But Possible! (Wink Wink)

Here's one of the new Holiday cards for next year!

I adore Snowmen, so I went with this CUTE Victorine Originals
Stamp called Happy Snowman (2991-J)
I masked off my snowman image so I could add some Broken China
Distress Ink & Some Tumbled Glass Distress ink, to give it that
wintry look - I colored him all up with some Zig Real brush pens
and used a White Signo Gel Pen for the spots of snow --

The sentiment (Happy Holidays) is from Raisin Boat 
Called Elves are Watching - That set is so CUTE!
I added some Pretty Snowflakes & Gems to add a touch
of Holiday Sparkle!

And you know I HAD to do the inside as well - If I don't then
I'd be Back tracking having to get them done -
Seems silly not to just get them done while I'm making my card!

So I Pulled out another wonderful Sentiment from
Victorine Originals this one is called

I really like that SumMore Fun Stamps have
the sentiments individually - WHY? Because sometimes
I only like certain sentiments in a stamp set - and so I only
use the ones I want and pay more for an entire set that I won't use - UGH!
This way - I get to chose which sentiment I want to use & Keep
it in my stash - Win Win for me anyway!!! LOL

We still have our Challenge going on over at

  Our Mood Board is - LET IT SNOW

 You can follow the Theme or Use the inspiration photo
or Use the color combo all use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from Victorine Originals if you don't have one!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

The Challenge ends Wednesday, DEC. 6th
So make sure to join us!

Theresa, I sure wish I had your time management skills. You are so on top of things. What a precious card. I love the background and how it showcases the adorable snowman. As always the inside is perfection as well. Love it.
