Merry Monday: Snow Much Joy

It's been a long time since I have done a Christmas card and I had promised myself that this year I would do better.  There are great challenges out there to help - my favorite being Merry Monday.  I have been playing along sporadically - but the year is half over and I need to buckle down!!

This card uses a Hero Arts snowman that came out a year or two ago.  I liked every card that I saw him on and I finally got the set this year.  But then, for months, no one had the snowman die - it was out-of-stock no matter where I looked.  I had just decided that perhaps it was retired and I had missed it, but finally...it was available...maybe he's just still a very popular guy!!  (I have a clear set called Snow Much Joy.  There's also a wood-mounted stamp with a sleepy little snowman that also fits the die.)

Wow Kim, this card is adorable. I love that snowman I can see why you waited to get him and the die together. I also love the embossing folder, need to find that one. I always enjoy visiting your blog. Thank you for playing along with my Merry Monday sketch.

Oh, this is great inspiration!!
I've got the same die, but never used it this side up!
Well I love how you did the embossing, so I'll give it a try myself with this embossingdie and see if it works for me too. :-)
Great card!
Bye,

Absolutely darling card! I want to hug that snowman, he's so cute! I, too, had spotted this stamp/die but gave up looking when 'out of stock' seemed to be non-ending. Great to know they're available - and perhaps I ought not to wait too long before adding these little gems into my collection! Have a great Monday!
