Three Funny Snowmen



I didn't get enough Christmas cards made in 2012 and was scrambling at the end so this year I decided to start early and maybe if I keep plugging away, I will actually make it.  My other goal is to make every card flat enough that it only requires regular postage, which is going up to 63 cents here in Canada - ouch.

I haven't had time to play in Sassy Cheryl's challenges for ages but decided I would use one of my newly purchased images and participate this week.  The challenge is Anything Goes (as long as you use a Sassy Cheryl image) so I am sure a Christmas card will qualify.

I also used my new Cameo to cut the snowflake but I really need to spend more time figuring out what blade depth and speed I need for the type of material I am using because it did not go as well as I hoped and I wasted some material.  I know once I figure it out, I will love the machine.

I am going to enter these happy snowpeople in the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's - Anything Goes (with a Sassy Cheryl image)
Gingerloft Challenges - Christmas or Winter
That Craft Place - Christmas
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Broken Box Stock - Winter/Snowflakes
Card Crafters Circle - There's No Business Like Snow Business
Dilly Beans - Snowmen
Creative Belli - Winter/Snowmen

  2. Super idea, I hope to get ahead early this year as well. Maybe we can encourage each other. Didn't know you got a Cameo as well, I am having lots of fun trying things and decided to sign up for classes at Jessica Sprague, hopefully I can learn to use my new toy.
    Love your card.

  13. I know my square cards are costing a fortune. I swore I was going to start making all 5x7 flat cards to qualify for the regular postage, but I recently bought a box of 250 6 1/2 square envelopes, so I guess the Postal Authority will love me for awhile longer. LOL

    Your card is darling. Love the blue and white and I adore all of the snowmen too. I am so happy to see you found some playtime and joined us at Sassy Cheryl's this week. I alwys love what you create.


    Hugs, Linda
