Hello, blogging friends.  We are supposed to get some nasty rain and snow mix today with cold temps, which could cause a lot of problems, driving and with the power lines.  So far nothing, so maybe it will miss us.
I bought this fun snowman in January and never got him inked up and a card made with him, despite the fact that he has been sitting on my stamp table waiting.  Well, today is his day!
Remember my vow to make Christmas cards year round and enter Christmas challenges so I would not be rushing during the holidays......well, I fell off the wagon, but hey, I figure everyone I make during the year will be a bonus.....and I'm sticking with that!!!!

Oh so cute snowman with his little bird friend.
I so love Whipper Snapper Design stamps and my local stamp store
carries a large variety of them, but they are more expensive than

Aw, this little guy is beyond cute - he's too pretty to be just darling - in fact, this card is down right beautiful LOL Wonderful design with the round scallops and touches of glitter. Of course, your trademark coloring is fabulous! hugs, de (PS my first image was of a PSX botanical as well - was yours a rose, or was it something else?)
