Season's Greetings!

This is my second card and post for today! I made this for Taylor's Sketch this week. Obviously, I really loved the sketch:) This card was inspired by the little baby I watch. She has THE cutest outfits. This card uses the new ribbon I got from Taylored Expressions. It's a yummy blue/green twill. I really wanted to sew a black stitch through it, but that was too much for my Janome:(

I love this image that is called JACK and the snowman. So far, I have yet to make him MALE. It's hard to see in the photo, but I added stickles to the background to resemble falling snow. I also added it to some of the white polka dots on the base of the card. This also uses my Polar White Flower Soft and a little pom pom for the snowball. I pulled out lots of old things from my stash. Rub ons for the sentiment and the snowflake is a button. I added a Taylor's Tiny Twinkle in the center of the button. This card just makes me smile. I just think that image is so FUN and the colors are so cheery! Go check out Taylor's sketch this week. It's a cute one!

Remember that this is the last week to enter into the drawing for my Blog Candy for a Cause, as well as, the Make a Child Smile challenge. Friday is the last day. I will draw both names on Saturday and announce the winner on Sunday's Stamptacular Sunday Challenge post. I am still about $200 from my goal. So, PLEASE keep spreading the word. A big THANK YOU to all of you who have donated. You warm my heart:)

Nikki, that image is the 'funnest' ever! How cute! You know that in a month or two, we won't be thinking that anything involving snow is cute...lol... Love your card! I've got a post to do tonight, I'll put out a reminder about your fund! In the meantime, sistah, exercise those fingers, and do some meditation and yoga, and say some om's or something, so that you are all prepared to draw my name!!! Have a good night!
