Snowman in the Meadow

Hello Blogger Friends and thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
Well, it's the day after the Presidential election here in the US. It was a hard fought battle for the heart and soul of our nation. And, I am glad to know that all the negative ads attacking both candidates are over. As are most Americans, I believe.
Just because that's over doesn't mean we should turn it on each other. We need to show love, respect and humility. Today I am reminded of the biblical scripture that says we should pray for those in authority over us. Regardless of your political persuasion could it hurt us if we prayed for our new President? We need to return to civility in our land towards each other.
Anyway, let's move onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #606 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara was our hostess and she chose island indigo, bermuda bay and calypso coral.
I was determined to do a Christmas card with these colors. I had all kinds of ideas floating in my head and I decided to try the baby wipe technique. Duh- I didn’t have any of the reinkers in these colors. How could I not know that (lol)!!!
 So, I took a step back and used idea #2. I decided to make a little snowman scene. I used the CottageCutz “winter snowman” die and for my tree the CottageCutz “woodland mailbox” die. I dressed the snowman in a bermuda and coral scarf and his buttons and nose are cut in island indigo. I opted to leave my tree white and added a little chunky glitter on the branches.

My background was done with the MFT “falling snow” stencil and 3-D molding paste. Cut my snow bank with the Lawn Fawn stitched hillsides die and added some glitter.

My sentiment is from the PTI “in the meadow” stamp set. I stamped in island indigo ink and scattered a few bermuda bay sequins to complete my card.
Well that's it for me for today. So until next time.........God Bless.
