It is my first Christmas card of the season!!!! LOL I'm still whirling! LOL It could not be avoided because of the challenge this week at High Hopes Stamps! The challenge this week is RED & GREEN. Yeah, I know, I could have done something else with those colors, but come on! RED & GREEN???? You're kidding me right??? OK, here is my card:
Now there's some red and green! This little snowman cutie is by Laurie Furnell. I love snow "people" and I know this is not really a traditional Christmas image, but I still think it works as a non-traditional Christmas card. Maybe choosing this image was my subconscious was telling me this was a way for me to get around making a Christmas card before December 1st! LOL You can't see it really well in this shot, but it is really glittery and dimensional. His sweater and hat trimmings are done with liquid appliqué, and the snow too. The snowballs are glittered up with MS coarse crystal glitter. I used Stickles to create the little holly berries on the corner of the sentiment panel. The background paper is by The Paper Studio.
So, there you have it. Another High Hopes challenge. I hope you get to play along. I have to admit that I'm a little relieved that I have my first Christmas card completed! There is kind of a sense of accomplishment! LOL So hop on over to High Hopes' blog to see all the other wonderful creations from my fellow Divas!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Hugs to all of you!
