Day 4 Holiday Card Inspiration!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  Hope your having a great Wednesday!  This morning Carter and I went to his weekly stay and play drop in at our church.  It's great to get out and see friends!

I am here with another Holiday card to share! Please remember that I am offering a giveway to a random commenter on one of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards! It's so sunny outside today (which is fantastic after dreary weather) so I was able to get really good photos of my cards!  I used my favorite snowman from Hero Arts set Snow Much Joy!  The matching frame cut makes him so much easier to use!  


I paper pieced the snowman with paper from Simple Stories Simnple Handmade collection.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment sets this year, Miracle of the Holidays!
I actually made 4 of this card!  Two of each style here is the other:


 
  Can you see all the snow we have?  Over the weekend they called for a blizzard and luckily it didn't come!  It did snow a lot I think something like 25 cm but it snowed for 2 days on and off so it wasn't as bad as it could have been!  So on Friday we had no snow and no we have this!  We are thrown right into tons of snow and winter driving!  On Sunday we were running out of time so Chad decided he would shovel when we came back from church.  Came home to a cleared driveway, what great neighbors! 

Not sure if you saw this but I am thankful for Jennifer McGuire for sharing about my wreaths on her blog here.  I can see that a lot of people have come from her blog to see my wreaths!  I've been quite busy with etsy sales, custom orders and local orders too!  One of my friends yesterday shared with her friend who ordered 3 wreaths!  I've employed Chad too!  LOL Well I work on wreaths whenever I get a chance and often he is home.  He did a bunch of circle die cutting for a few wreaths (a lot of flowers I cut by hand but a few I can die cut instead)  Here is my newest Holiday Wreath that will go into my shop later today:

That's it from me today!  I shall be back soon!

very inspiring Anita. I won that stamp set and have the sentiment one too... but not the die, so it's hand cutting for me. I'll be casing this one as I need a few quick cards to stock up my supplies after a sale at work. Love it;

I can see why this is one of your favorite snowmen. He is so Jolly on your card. Love the pattern trim and matching scarf! I'm enjoying seeing all of your holiday cards. Thanks for sharing the snow also. I'm in Georgia and we rarely get snow here.
