Yesterday's post was my first Easter card of the season. Then when I saw that the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown was a masculine theme, I knew I'd also be doing my first Christmas card of the season!
For my sons, I usually do silly or snarky - but they are both in such a time of change as they are college graduates and trying to move into adulthood, I wanted a more meaningful message. One son in particular struggles with the concept of joy and peace - he's always searching - so this sentiment just seemed perfect for him. I kept it masculine with the plaid and with that cute little snowman in his blue snow gear.
The snowman was a freebie last year at Simon Says for buying a certain amount of Tim Holtz products - not a hard thing for me to do and I couldn't pass up that snowman. The set is Chilly & Freezy and there are two snowmen in the die set. I'll definitely bring them both out to play in the near future.
Thanks to the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for inspiring me to start on my Christmas stash!
