Barry Loves Snow:


Good morning all - it's Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!  Friday's really are the best don't you think??  And on top of that it is a long weekend here - Monday is Victoria Day here.  Plus I am off all next week, first vacation of the Summer!  We will be getting the yard ready for Summer and then going to a spa retreat for three days.  Life is good.

And since it's Friday, I was able to make another Christmas card.  I usually make rather colourful Christmas cards, this one not being an exception.  To me, Christmas is fun and cheerful - heck, my Christmas home/tree colours are lime green, hot pink, purple and teal :)


 And it wouldn't be a "me" card without paper piecing.  I, of course, gave Barry a fun scarf and touque (known by the rest of the world as a winter hat?) and also gave him some wooden skis.
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME papers, Bazzill Basics and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Recollections pearls.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Rectangle Nesties, Making Memories edge distresser.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Holly Jolly - first letter/first name: Deanne (dots (polka dots), distressing), Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch), Sweet Stampin' Christmas - winter sports, Sparkles Christmas - favourite festive colours (anything non-traditional!)


Have a lovely long weekend if you live in most parts of Canada - cheers!!!
