25 Days of Christmas: Day 14

Good Morning Everyone!

How are you all today? I hope your day is going well and I am happy you're stopping by to take a look at my card for today. For Day 14, I created another longer style card. This a a fun size to do because it will fit into a greeting card size envelope, so you don't have to use a business class envelope. The card measures
6 1/4 x 3 1/2. My card is not as long as Kristina's "Friends Warm the Heart" card, so I had to create a bit of a different scene as well. I did, however try to keep similar colors. Some people are not big on using pink for Christmas cards. I, however, love to use it! I'm not sure why, perhaps it just makes me think of sugar plum fairies, cookies and sweet holiday treats. I think I like using it because it makes me think of childhood memories of Christmas and also the innocence and wonder of my own children during the holiday season. Anyhow, no matter what the reason, I always jump at any chance
I get to use a bit of pink on a Christmas card. I also didn't have any red/white striped ribbon, so I used some baker's twine instead.I think it's a bit hard to see in the picture; but there is some sparkly fluff on the snowman in the scene, so he's all fluffy and adorable!! 
The images for this cute little winter scene are from OCL's "Tweet Winter Wishes" I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored them in with some Copic markers.This turned out to be one of my favorite cards in the collection. Come to think of it, I have a lot of "favorites" this year! Oh well, I guess you can't have too many of those can you?!!
Anyhow, enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for visiting with me and I'll see you tomorrow!
