SnowBalls 4 Sale

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
Well here we are in mid -September already. My preschool classes started last week. The first day it was only an hour and we had parents stay with us. Even with parents there we had 2 kids crying and then Thursday the class was 2 hours and no parents. We had 2 kids crying the entire class.
They just get scared that the parents aren't going to come back for them and it's their first time in school. We are hoping for no tears this coming Tuesday. Both kids have really never been away from their parents according to the parents. And on a brighter note, the kids are smart and able to follow instructions. I can see that even after 2 classes.
Now onto my class for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.
I used the current Mojo sketch for my card layout.
My designer paper reminded me of a snow storm so I went with it. The colors are balmy blue from Stampin'-Up. I used the dimensions provided on the sketch for the panels.
The new Christmas 2019 dies have been released and I used the Snowman w/Snowballs die on this card. I used red and green cardstocks -after all he is a Christmas snowman. Did you notice the little bird on his hat?
I assembled the card using a combo of double sided tape and dimensional adhesives. I wanted the images to be lifted slightly off the snowy background. Both image panels were embossed with the Stampin'-Up "softly falling" embossing folder.  
Finished off my card by adding a few sequins. I thought this one would work for a masculine Christmas card. I send a few of those out to our single friends.
Well that's it for me for this post. Hope you have a great weekend. So until next time...…..God bless.
