I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Frosty the Snowman

Nothing says Christmas to me as a snowman Christmas card and that is the theme at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges this week. .  This jolly snowman is a digital image from I Brake for Stamps.  I love his smile, so sweet.

The swirl background of this card is a sheer napkin fabric in sliver, I thought it gave the card some interest and sparkle.   I next added a layer pattern paper and a snowflake garlands, then to complete the card I added some white pom poms, pearls and ribbon.  I think he looks very festive.  

Thank you for stopping to take a look and please join us this week for the snowman challenge at Holly Jolly.
