Christmas Snowman

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit The Charmed Life Blog. Tod ay was my first day back at the fitness center since I got sick.
After it was over I was thinking it may have been a day or two too soon. My trainer really worked me out and I was exhausted at the end of the hour. In fact, when I came home I felt like I was getting sick all over again.
Bad for me 'cause my hubby wanted to take me on a date tonight. But, after I ate something I regained my energy. Too late for the date but maybe next week. Well, next week definitely because its our anniversary.
Now onto my card for today. I made another Christmas card for my stash and for the color challenge #449 on Splitcoaststampers.  Karen was our hostess and she chose cherry cobbler, sahara sand and old olive.

She also wanted us to give our card a raggedy edge. I tried Karen I really did but it just didn’t go with my snowman (lol)!!!
We had a little go around on the cc team with Karen giving us some good-natured ribbing because we “whined” about the paper tearing.

My card is using this week’s MojoMonday sketch #316. My background designer paper is sahara sand and is from the Stampin-Up “holiday lounge” collection.
Stamped my sentiment on the designer paper in cherry cobbler. The stamp is from MSE. 

 I used a Spellbinder circle die and cut it in cherry cobbler. On the middle cobbler strip I used the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. My flags are from the Verve pennant trim die.

My cute little snowman is from Hero Arts and he has a matching die. Makes for an easy cut-out.
I paper-pieced his hat and scarf in old olive. Added some Stampin-Up old olive dotted ribbon and bow to complete my card.
And, this also completes my post for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God Bless.
