Happy Monday all!

This week at Merry Monday, Nina would like us to create a Christmas card based on our FAVOURITE MOVIE




My cards are based on the movie Frosty the Snowman

  

Now they may not have corncob pipes and button noses, but they DO have fuzzyy hats =)

I started by masking my cardstock, added blue ink, and spritzed a bit water.  I coloured my little Frostys with Zig markers and added a cotton ball for the puff.

Winter Flowers:

Happy Sunday to you!  


This week at The Paper Players, Jaydee's Color Challenge is pink, green, with silver and white:




Now that the secound half of the year is upon us, it's time for me to get serious about my Christmas cards =)

Every chance I get until Christmas, I am going to try to double my output.  So of course when I saw these colours, I immediately thought CHRISTMAS!  I love non traditional Christmas colours!



Although my camera did not want to focus on the lower silver half of the polar bear in the above photo, it is indeed very legible.  And shiny and fabulous =)



This is definitely one of my favourite Christmas sets!  This dear head = swoon!!!
