Fun Christmas card

I'm getting a pretty good stash of Christmas cards though most of them will be too bulky to mail!!!
My daughter is even getting some made... check out hers in the post below.

 I thought I'd go with a fun theme for this one...



Challenges...
jingle belles JB-12-18 - Holiday B-I-N-G-O (I did the bottom row-dry or heat embossing, tree, ribbon)

Shopping Our Stash Challenge 66 - Use your favorite things -I LOVE embossing!!!! and snow!!
Twisted Tuesday 2TC21 - Cooling off and Getting Inky - something that cools you off (falling in the snow does that!) and ink the edges
Krafty Girls - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Merry Monday #30 - sketch

I intended to play along with Playing in Paradise #81 but forgot they close at noon! :(

We started our kids with skiing lessons last year and when I saw this stamp, I had to have it.  It's an ippity by unity set called Pain and Pride.
~Paper Studio DP, Kraft paper
~Swiss Dots and Distressed Stripes embossing folders
~April Showers cart for the tree
~AC ribbon
~Color Box Cat's Eye inks


Thanks for stopping by!!!

I love this stamp so much - that guy just has a great look on his face :) Fab idea to emboss that panel - makes it look like it's snowing!
BOO on missing the PPC deadline (been there, done that...I'm glad you played anyway!), and Awesome to have you play along with us at Shopping our Stash :) I love the embossed tree, too - super clever!

I was purusing the linked up cards for inspiration for my card for the bingo challenge and this caught my eye, it's gorgeous! I love everything about it especially the humor.

HA! i ♥LOVE♥ it! brilliant take on the "favorites" theme at SOS and absolutely AWESOME version of our JB bingo card! i especially love that the "tree" is not green and decorated... you've put a great "spin" on that part of it, i feel a bit sad for mr. penguin, but it does make for a lovely and hilarious card!!! ♥♥♥

Love this, love the image and the tree is super! I think I'm going to have to try the embossing over the image like you do. It really does look like falling snow!
