Christmas Magic

Merry Christmas!  
I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Holiday with your loved ones today.
We were going to see some family today, but due to some winter stormy weather, we decided to play it safe and stay home.
I made two different cards this time.  The cards shown here were part of my Christmas cards that I made to send to friends and family this year.  I love the feel of them and the none traditional colors.  And the glitter!!
I hope you get to spend some time crafting over the weekend after the family fun and all the yummy food.
Happy New Year and I will see you in 2016!
Hugs, Heidi

Warm Winter Wishes Snowman Card

It's Heidi here with you today. 
 It's only 2 weeks till Christmas, can you believe that? 
 I have been wrapping presents and baked some cookies but there is still so much to be done.  I still have a ton of Christmas Cards to make.  So I cranked up the Christmas tunes and got to work. 
I love this little snowman.  He is so cute and was fun to color.  I didn't want him to be plain, so I used a pale pink and blue to make him stand out a bit more.  Then colored his hat and nose in bright colors. I used some velvet rick rack, a felt snowflake and some pink striped ribbon.  The ribbon reminds me of those yummy ribbon candies that my great grandma would always have in her candy dish when I was a young girl.  I also used some Tim Holtz tinsel that I just love and now I need to get more because of how cute this turned out.  I plan to make a few more of these for my card stash.  

Here is a list of everything I used:
