'Tis the Season!

Hi there! Today's share is pretty glittery!! I've used the about to be Retired Branch Out stamp set along with the snowman from SnowBuddies. Isn't he darling??? I wanted that snowman the minute I saw him. Snowmen are "my thing", I'd collect several dozen every Christmas if I could but this year I've refrained and not bought any......*sigh*. Maybe still..... Also, you will notice that I didn't use ANY designer paper on this card!! Unusual for me, that's for sure!!
I was totally inspired to CASE this marvelous card trio from Sandy MacIver found here. Isn't her's fabulous?! I really love her blog, please be sure to check it out, I'm sure you'll be as inspired as I have been! :-)
This card features Brilliant Blue cardstock, a colour I just don't use enough, along with Ballet Blue & Whisper White. Mr. Snowman was stamped with black, his accessories coloured in Green Galore & Tempting Turqoise, and the tree from Brach out was stamped in Brillian Blue. The background was sponged with Brillian Blue, Brodade Blue, Ballet Blue and Regal Rose. I always love to add the pinky/rose element to my background skies, its so realistic as to what we see here in Alberta :-) The Winter skies are my favourite.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!! Christmas will be here before we know it.....:-)
