Sending Christmas Cheer -- Crafty Sentiments Designs

CURRENT BLOG CANDY

Hi there!!
I'm so so so excited because 
this is my first official post for Crafty Sentiments Designs!!!
I am super happy that I will be joining the DT for a 6 month term!!!  YAY!!!

Usually I go into total panic mode when I have to make a boy's card, but this time I had a game plan as soon as I saw this fun stamp.  I knew right away that I was going to use a bunch of MFT goodies to create a scene for my little snowball thrower!!  I hope that you like my masculine holiday card!!
Our theme this fortnight on the challenge blog is: "For the Guys" 


This little cutie is a stamp called "Snow Ball" and you can find him HERE with all of his holiday sisters in the store.

  8. I. Love. This. Card. Perfect scene and your colouring is totally awesome!

    Hey, do you realize that if you look at your challenges and product list, and use your imagination a bit, it looks like a snowman complete with top hat and mustache? (Well, I suppose it could be a scarf rather than a mustache but it is Movember season after all.....)
