A Snowball Fight

Hello friends.  I have a Christmas card to share.  I love making Christmas cards.  I know some of you are tired of making them and you're ready to move on.  Not me ... I don't think I ever really get tired of making them lol!


Today I've used this adorable Swings and Slides Merry Christmas - Snowballs from the Pollycraft  shop.  Now, isn't he just the cutest?  Such a sweet innocent face and you know he's getting ready to let those snowballs fly at someone lol!  He's colored with distress inks and I used Glamour Dust on the snowballs and ground snow.  I added some snowflakes with pearls and a little sentiment ornament.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Oh I NEVER get tired of Christmas cards - they are my favourite card to make! I could make them all year round. REALLY love this card Anita - love the image and the way you embellished the card with the snowflakes and that GORGEOUS MB die in the corner.
