*One More Sleep*

The first of my Christmas related countdowns is coming to an end.... tomorrow night my niece Rachael arrives from Ontario.  She usually comes with her Mom (my sister Heather) but she wanted to spend a few days with us on her own so she's coming a few days earlier than Heather and my Mom.  I'm really looking forward to spending some time with her as well, although I have this awful feeling that she will want to hit the new mall this weekend....  and I hate malls the week before Christmas.

But I love her so I will suck it up.

The next count down is 4 more sleeps until my Mom comes!

The card I'm sharing today would have been better had I used a different image.  There was one I borrowed from one of the CalGals last year of two snowmen in an embrace that would have been perfect, but I didn't have any more of the images I had stamped off.  None of my other images was going to work quite like how I wanted it to.  This was the closest I could find.

Items Used: 
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Night of Navy
*Images:  Michael's cheap stamp
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! Markers
*Tools:  Big Shot; Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder; dots Sizzix embossing folder; Stampin' Up! Scallop border punch; Nestabilities
*Embellishments:  Stampin' Up! grosgrain ribbon
*Challenges:  C4C15 and Mojo117


Yup, I combined two challenges this week....  the Crazy4Challenges challenge was to create a card with snowflakes or snowmen....  and the sketch if Mojo117.

I like how you embossed both the background and the horizontal panel with "snow" image. Really adds to your snowman theme.

AWESOME card! Love the embossing and the scallops here!

Great minds think alike. I used this same color scheme on an olc valentine's day card late last night. Will post it soon.
