Snowmen and Cocoa! What A Combo!

Happy December, everyone! Can you believe Christmas is less than a month away! Wow, time sure flies! It has been unseasonably warm here, lately, and I am SO enjoying it! I admit, I love Christmas, but I am definitely not looking forward to the bitter cold and snow!

To fuel your Christmas and winter creativity, we have a new release for you, today, from Bugaboo Stamps! Lots of fun snowmen to play with! Who doesn't love snowmen?! You can find these adorable fellas in the store, and also see a fabulous array of inspirational creations featuring these awesome snowmen, at Catch The Bug! Head over and check them out! They are too cute!

My card today features one of the new release snowman images, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. For my card layout, I used the Sketch at Sunday Sketch And Stamp.  I went with a funky mix of patterns for this fun Christmas card.  The glittered ribbon is celebrate it from michael's.  The holly is punched with a new Christmas punch by Martha Stewart.  I used red stickles to add berries to the holly.  The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.
