Bayou Snowman

Here
are
some
more
Christ-
mas
cards
I
made
that
I
never
posted
to my
blog.
I saw
a card
on
Rose
Ann's
blog

where she made a Blue Bayou and White card and I loved how it looked, so that's where I got the inspiration for these colors. Thanks for the inspiration, Rose Ann!

The cute snowman (my favorite cuppie!) is from Taylored Expressions, the Home Sweet Home set. It's a real simple card. The image is watercolored and I dry embossed the snowflakes partially along the top edge. Oh, and I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the embossed snowflakes.

SUCH a cute card, Denise!! This is definitely my favorite image from Taylor's line. But then I'm a snowman collector and a cupcake freak. My DD found snowman cupcake ornaments at World Market and they look adorable on my tree.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.
