Good Cheer...

Good morning peeps! Did any of you watch the Grammy's last night?  I watched up until a bit after 10 pm then switched over to watch Sherlock Holmes. (Yes, I opted not to watch Downton Abbey last night. Say it isn't so! They always have reruns throughout the week so I'm ok with it. ☺)

So, on to my card! This is one that I made using colors from the just about not current CMCC#4 and also the prompt from Merry Monday #91 - snowman/snowmen. I know it's already closed. I told myself earlier this month that I was going to try making Christmas cards throughout the year instead of in November and December, you know, like I always do! So I'm trying to catch up with all the challenges so far this year.

and the inside:

Pretty self explanatory. Some die cutting (snowflake), some stamping, coloring, and fussy cutting (snowman), a sentiment or two and I was done! Right before I took the pictures, I thought there was too much white space, so I added the rhinestones. I like so much better than I did! LOL!

Ok, gotta go enter this now! (wink) I may be back with another post. You never know. I was crafty more than usual this weekend! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!
