Snowmen fall...

I can't believe it's December already. I'm so behind on my Christmas cards, shopping, etc. Every year it's the same thing - I think I have so much time and then all of a sudden I'm in a panic because I've procrastinated and suddenly Christmas is right around the corner! So, forgive me if I'm a little spotty in my posting for a while as I try to get some things done.

This card is for Repeat Impressions. The main image is the Tiny Twig Hair Snowman, which I stamped three times - one just looked too lonely! I had some little 'snowballs' that I decided to use to make it look like my little snowmen are in the middle of a snowball fight. Their scarves are Liquid Pearls and their noses are orange Stickles. I went over the outline of the snowmen with my silver Copic Spica glitter pen. The image and its mat were cut out using my new Labels One Nestabilities - this is my favorite of the new shapes.

The red and white striped twine is from Martha Stewart and the bow has a snowflake brad in the center of it. The background paper is from the Stampin' UP! Ski Slope collection.

Hope those of you in the US had a nice Thanksgiving weekend! Happy December and thanks for looking!
