Christmas in July Part 1

I love making Christmas cards. So I was excited when I saw so many "Christmas in July" card challenge sthis week. I made 4, but I'm going to enter my favorite one in the challenges, because it fits the criteria for the most challenges, and it's one that, while I did start with an idea from a class, I ventured the farthest away from the original card. It also uses one of my favorite cards from the new catalogue.


I am absolutely in LOVE with this snowman. So much so that it's going to be VERY hard for me to resist buying this set. Now, I am the LAST person who needs to be buying more Christmas sets. But I remember my regret over not buying Flaky Friends and Frosty  so I am not sure I want to miss out on this set.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

OWH - Christmas in July
Our Creative Corner - Christmas in July
The Paper Players - Christmas in July
TSG114 - Glitter, Gliz, Bling

Card Details - all products SU!
Stamp: Snow Much Fun
Cardstock: Soft Suede & Cherry Cobbler, Eaarly Espresso (DSP)
Ink: Staz On Black, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Other: Blender Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Basic Pearls, sponge daubers, modern label punch

Oh, I love him!!! My sister and I had hats exactly like that when we were young (a very long time ago!) It's a gorgeous card and reminds me that I need to go back to making Christmas cards (and I too need more Christmas stamps like the proverbial hole in the head, but who could resist a snowman like this?)
