Merry Monday # 71 and Festive Friday

What a surprise this morning to hear my BFF, Linda get all excited about being the TOP winner for last week's Merry Monday and I was right below her with a top pick!  I tell you, it made her day (and mine too)!!

This week we have a new sketch and we do try to make our Christmas cards throughout the year...sure takes the stress off and we have fun doing it one at a time all year long!

I used the cute snowman from Tremendous Treats and colored him with copics; I punched some circles and ran them through my zyron machine and then added glitter to them...Oh it makes such a mess, but this is such a sparkly and fun card!  They are snowballs, you know!  That is what you need to build a snowman..the sentiment is from In the Meadow.

HERE is the link to play along with this weeks Merry Monday....and here is the sketch to get you inspired!  And since KIDS love to build snowmen, make snowballs and have snowballs fights, I thought I would add this card to the Festive Friday Challenge!!  Go check them both out and have some fun!
