Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

This is my second post today, please scroll down and see my first post from today also.
Happy Monday Everyone!!

Today's challenge over at Maria's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog is Maria's Sketch challenge. We know that Maria makes the best sketches!! I thought this looked kind of like a gate fold card so I made my card a gate fold card. I used My Mind's Eye papers and the tree, joy, snowman and journaling spot are also My Mind's Eye. I used the lovely Snow Anya from the Rain, Snow, Shine set from The Greeting Farm. She is so cute!! I colored her with my copics and used a glitter pen on her muff and her coat and boot fluff. IRL it is super sparkly. I cut her out with my nesties and popped her and the little tree and Joy up on pop dots. For the inside of my card, I used a punch out snowman and journaling spot as my focal point and cut the green and pink cardstock out with my nesties. I put my snowman on pop dots as well. Simple, but I like how it turned out. I hope you do too!!


Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. It's time to get started on those cards!! We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you.
