It's 70 degrees out and sunny, so what do I do?...

Make a Christmas card. What else?


here's the inside:


I couldn't help it. As soon as I saw the new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #72, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I knew somewhere in my Christmas stash, I had snowman face rub-ons from ages ago. So after literally dumping out on the floor and riffling through all the embellies, I finally found the rub-ons. This card is about as CAS as I'll ever get. It's basically a one layer card (almost unheard of in my crafty world), if you don't count the snowman heads popped up on foam squares. (let's not go all crazy now.) And with me, it needed something more, so I added the twine. I'm also entering this at Merry Monday #103-use a snowman. (or, in my case, 9)



Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great rest of your day! Stay crafty my friends!

Great card! I can just see you sitting on the floor, dumping out the contents of the Christmas Embellishments Box, and rifling though it. It's EXACTLY what I would do. :D

Also, I'll be doing the same thing tomorrow for the new Jingles Belles challenge.
