Is it Time for Snow Yet?

Sure feels like snow around here.  The temperature has dropped and so have many of the leaves. Halloween is just around the corner and so is our first snow.

I have the Christmas bug early this year and you will see a lot more Christmas cards from me over the next weeks.  This card is made with a friendly Magnolia snowman. I followed the Mojo Monday sketch for my inspiration.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia Snowman, SU Snowman set from 2 years ago
Paper: Whisper White, Sweet Magnolia Christmas Mini Pack
Markers: Copics - B00, R37, R39 (these are my go-to Christmas red colors), Distress Weathered Wood
Embellishments: SU Twine, MS Hearts edge punch, Stickles, Hero Arts lace, cheese cloth, SU pearls, 
SU Sizzix embossing folder, Spellbinders Label Four

The Stickles on the snowflake looks a little green, but it is just the light refraction.

Challenges for today's card:

I had a great Monday work day.  How about you?
Have fun stamping!



Lovely card! Really beautiful. Thanks for joining us at Christmas Inspirations challenges. We hope you will join again next challenges too.
