Clemmy Snowballs:


Good morning all!  Five months from today, it will pitch black out, freezing cold, and there will be me:  warming up the car getting ready for Boxing Day shopping!!  One of my favourite days of the year!

 I thought I would give colouing a go with my "broken" thumb/wrist (okay, it's not broken, but it sure feels that way!).

It's not my best work, I think the details are on the messy side, but I DO like the red and green together.  I am so used to doing very non-traditional Christmas colours that I had forgotten how beautiful red and green are.

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME Traveler papers, Bazzill and Recollections cardstock, Craftsmart Teal ink, Prismacolor pencils, Celebrate It ribbon, Recollections pearls.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, makeup sponge (for blending sky), sewing machine, Labels 4 Nestie.

I created this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch) and NO Christmas stamps, Crafting by Design, Card Crafter's Circle, Jellypark, and Crafting for all Seasons - Christmas in July.

Have a super wonderful weekend!  Cheers!
