It's December!

Holy Cow, I blinked two times and here it is December already! Happy December! I'm a little freaked out because today I'm suppose to start my December Daily album and I'm already struggling with the first page. Is anyone else with me on this? I have got to stop over thinking and just do it already! While I ponder why I can't be a more perfect scrapbooker, I'll share a cute little card to get us into the chilly December mood:

Is this snowman from Purple Onion Designs cute or what? He's one of my favorite POD stamps to use this time of the year and I love him with Aqua Mist and Raspberry Fizz. This is fast becoming a favorite color combo for me. I stamped the snowflakes in white pigment ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then sponged the edges and lightly wiped off the snowflakes so that they showed through again. I love the wintry, cheery look of this card.

In case you hadn't already noticed, I have officially opened an Etsy shop to sell some of my cards and other creations! You can click here to visit my shop, or follow the link in the right hand column on my blog (under my picture). There isn't a ton in there right now, as time was not on my side this weekend and I've already sold several cards (thanks, Terry!). I'm so excited to get some Christmas creations in there soon! So keep checking back!

I love the little earmuffs on the snowman. So cute. I used berry sorbet and spring moss on my cards this year. Really liked that combo. Loving your combo, will have to make a few tags with this color combo.
