Festive Friday 9/9

Good Morning and welcome to another edition of Festive Fridays. If you are new to us, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy some wonderful Christmas Cards. Yes, I did say Christmas...Festive Fridays will be every other Friday with samples of Christmas cards. This way, you can be making your cards all year long and you will avoid the mad rush when you could be enjoying the Christmas Season. You should have just come from Amanda. If you stumbled upon this post you can go back to Terri and start at the beginning. There is also a complete list of the Festive Friday hop on the left sidebar under the Festive Fridays blinkie in case you get lost along the way.

Now, my Christmas card isn't necessarily just for Christmas this week, but rather for winter.  I just love how this card turned out...I haven't made a long card in a long time but these two babies were just so adorable and I didn't want to lose any detail on them so here goes:
the card measures 7" x 4.25"
The SVG file is from LisaJane's Filekutz and since
I've become a DT member I can't get enough
of her files.  THEY are so easy to cut.
I added the ends of cotton swabs for the pompoms
and then highlighted around her dress with my new
found love for the Gelly Roll glitter pen.  Of course
I used Peachy Keen face stamps.
I cut all the pieces with my E-Craft and the tag also came
with my E-Craft software.  I inked around the outside with blue, 
and distressed the inside a bit with pink and used a
stamp from MyPinkStamper WinterPunnies.  The snowflakes
 were from my SCAL 3 Winter collection and cut with glitter paper.

Now I hope I've inspired you to make a Christmas (Winter) card because before you know it, you may need one ... it's getting chillier here everyday and I am not looking forward to that four letter word.  (hehehehe) I hope to see you back in two weeks for another Christmas (winter) card.  Now head on over to Angela and check out what she has for you.
