Happy Thoughts

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Show Some Snow
And here is my card for your inspiration:

I just got this image from Di and it is THE cutest!!  Obviously, it will be perfect for Christmas, but I am using it for a winter birthday card.  Since two of the characters are white (do you think the guy in the background is another snowman or is he a polar bear?  I thought bear at first, but then one of my kids mentioned the two snowman, so now, I don't know.) there isn't a ton of coloring to do, so it is perfect if you want something adorable but don't have a lot of time to color it up.  For my snow--I have a snowman (or maybe two), a big felt snowflake, and I added snowflakes falling with some glue and ultra fine glitter.  You can see it better in the photo below.

I pulled out two really, really old papers from an old Christmas pack that had a snow theme without being too Christmasy.  The felt snowflakes I have also had forever; I totally forgot about them until a couple weeks ago when I found them while looking for something else.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

What a cute card. The adorable image is beautifully coloured. I think it’s two snowmen, although it could be a polar bear. Thank you for joining in the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month. Good luck!

Heather this image is adorable. I definitely think it is a snowman at the back as he has a rounded smily face, a polar bear would have some sharp angles for the nose and wouldn't be so smiley :)

Thank you very much for entering your lovely card into our challenge. Good luck with the prize draw.

Stay healthy, happy, keep crafting and Creating Joy :)
