Snowmen in June!!! Yep.......Getting more of those Christmas cards done!

I honestly didn't plan on making a Christmas card when I sat down to think of something for the Skipping Stones Design #80 Sketch Challenge......but, that's exactly what ended up happening.

It's a good thing, because now there are 56 cards made for the holiday!  ;-)

Click to enlarge to see all of the fun details!  I'm loving this aqua/red color combination for Christmas cards

I love Skipping Stones Design stamps and this card was made using their Sassy Snow set.  I have a few people that just love snowmen and would love to have them on Christmas cards this year, so I used one of the snowmen in the set along with a sentiment from PTI to make this card.  Adding the Flower Soft makes it a bit fun.......but, the best part is that it is a mailable card!

Here's the sketch for the challenge:

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Skipping Stones Designs - Sassy Snow stamp set
Holiday Button Bits stamp set
Echo Park patterned paper - Wintertime
Rustic White cardstock
Flower Soft - Polar White
Memento ink - London Fog
Dark Chocolate ink
Copic markers - BG72  , R27  , B99  , E18  , T1, and YR09
Martha Stewart punch - snowflakes
Michael's - various gemstones

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
