Winter Card

This challenge was a struggle for me....
I usually don't start my Christmas cards until November or so....
or like last year....never even got them done...lol...
of course most of that was due to the surgery on my arm and hand....
 
 
So...this was the challenge at Joan's Gardens....
to use blue and white....
to use a tree....
to use a snowman...
and to use a corner embellishment....
 
Can you believe I don't own one snowman stamp??
So I used my tim Holtz embossing folder....
I embossed his hat a second time and cut it out to give a bit of color to him....
I also added a sparkle scarf....
the gorgeous tree is a die from Memorybox called "Winterland Tree"
the corner die is a Cheery Lynn Designs die I choose after winning their challenge....
the little stars were punched with a free little star punch I received from placing
an order "somewhere"....
 
Now speaking of winning.....a couple of weeks ago I won blog candy....
an entire box full from "Dar's Crafty Creations"....
it was loaded to the hilt...
and came at a good time, when we were having the horrific week here
 
also I happened to win a bit from the Michigan Lottery on Saturday....shocking!!
