My second Christmas card

Yeah, I need to get on the ball, Christmas is right around the corner and I have only made TWO Christmas cards. Seriously last year I hustled the first week of December to get my cards made. I wait to make Christmas cards like I wait to go Christmas shopping. I swear I go the week before Christmas. I don't know why I do that to myself. Last year I actually went around Thanksgiving but that was only because I was about to have my baby and I was having a c-section so I knew I was not going shopping right after that. Yikes!
Anywho, I played along with Skipping Stones Design Challenge #48. I can't remember the last time I played along with them but when I saw the sketch, designed by Karen Giron.





Yeah I know, crappy picture, but again I am a night crafter. One day I will do something about the pictures. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey's Jovial collection. The 6x6 paper pad is available at Artfuldelight for $5.50. Forgive me but I cannot for the life of me think of the name of the 2 stamp sets I used. I am so bad with that. I know the sentiment is from SU but that's all I have. LOL! The snowman was from a set that I purchased at Michaels last winter. I used some Stickles on the scarf and hat. Can't really tell in my crappy picture. LOL!

Anywho, that's it for now. Check back later as the winner of October's sketch challenge will be announced and featured. I may wait until tomorrow, it will just depend on if I can get a free moment to post it.

Happy Crafting!!
