Monday's Christmas Creation

Time for another Christmas Card. This week our challenge was to use buttons and ribbon. Not hard, right? I mean doesn't just about every card I make have ribbon! I chose to do a "winter" theme.

The snowman is a chipboard accent that I added buttons to and a felt hat. I just drew little arms/hands with a pen. I punched two circles and tied the ribbon through them. I used my dymo labeler for the sentiment.

Be sure to check out the Stampin' All Year Long blog to see the other fabulous team members cards. Also, since it's such a wonderful challenge using stuff I'm sure you have, why not play along? We'd LOVE to see your creation and it's a great time to get started on those Christmas cards!! I was in Hobby Lobby the other day and they had a whole aisle with Christmas Ribbon already out!! I was like holy cow they are early but I guess we do start seeing that stuff in July and that will be here before you know it - VERY scary thought!!

Thanks for stopping by and looking! Have a great day!
