Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone!

What a beautiful day here in my city! I had some time this morning to create a fun little Holiday card! I recently purchased some Stampin Up stamps from a new bloggy friend Nikki over at Creations by Mommy.  Stop by and see some of her cards, they are just so pretty! I also recently purchased the Cricut Cartridge Jolly Holidays. I couldn't wait to try out both! I really like the cartridge and the stamps are fabulous.  For this card I created my own embellishment which is the snow.  I used cotton balls and clear transparent glitter embossing powder. I also used lots of stickles.  
 Here is the card I created and the challenges I will be entering.

Oh how cute! I totally want to hug him! :o) He couldn't be any jollier, now could he? I mean, you sparklified his sack and he's standing on a button! That's pure happiness. I love your cottony snow and the stitching is fabulous! I love the stamp, too. I'm yearning for a Christmas cart! And you know what's funny? For some reason I always mentally reciprocate your blog titles to you... they just always seem like you're talking to us. Merry Christmas! Happy Day to you! Happy Halloween! Hehe. You make me happy. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
