Winter Birthday Wishes

I took a little time-out between cleaning and organizing the Craft Grotto and putting away Christmas decorations, so a little creative side-bar was in the works. This card was created for several challenges this week.

Just because Christmas is behind us, don't put those snowmen away just yet! Here in the KC area we have many inches of 'partly cloudy' on the ground and that's a lot of shovelling! And poor New England is almost solid ice. Winter is winter, right??

The first challenge is for Mercy's weekly challenge (MTSC54) using her beautiful sketch for this week. The second challenge is for Pollycraft and that's to create a card for a winter birthday. The third challenge is for Pink Elephant challenge #48 - to use two designer papers, three buttons and a snowflake.  Whew! I think I'm getting more at ease with these multiple projects.... or killing several birds with one stone!

This stamp is an older version from Hero Arts, and one from my ever-growing snowman collection. Gotta love snowmen.. each one I see has a clearly distinctive personality!

'Feels good to accomplish this..

Thanks for stopping by from your busy schedule. 'Til next time, happy crafting and be safe in all you do!

Details: Black and White Linen Neenah 80# cardstock, Offray ribbon, copic markers, Fiskars corner punch, three buttons from my stash, SU spiral punch, sentiment SU, Nesties snowflake die, DP's from Back to Basics collection from The Paper Studio.
