*One More Christmas Card*

Hi Everyone... a sunny day in Calgary today, but still not much above the freezing mark. I had to wear sandals today though as I went to get a pedicure... and I hate messing up my toes by putting on socks and shoes. I understand things will be a little warmer by Friday, with a sunny weekend ahead. I'm really tired of wearing my polar fleece sweater.

I am submitting my challenge cards to Tracy, just under the wire. At least this months are on time. I did the other the months way late! I wonder if I'll pull off the May challenge in May??

For April, Tracy challenged us to make cards using a snowman as the main image. We don't have to make all 5 cards the same, but since I'm finding it tough to be in the Christmas card mood, it's easier to make five the same.

For this card, I used a portion of a stamp by Stamps Happen. I coloured the image with my Stampin' Up markers since I couldn't colour match Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue with the Copics I own. I used the Stampin' Up scallop border punch to create the mats for my main image. The sentiment is from Unity.

I just LOVE the idea with the Scallop Border Punch... such a neat idea! To created it, I cut the blue layer to 2 3/4" and centred the paper in the punch on each of the four sides. The green layer was cut to 2 1/2" square.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
