Welcome! I'm a mother of two wonderful young men and wife to the best husband in the world. We live on a little farm and enjoy country livin at it's best (hence, my Blog name-LOL)! I enjoy my animals, reading, scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting and anything else I can get my hands on! Thanks for stopping by and sending me some love!!
I was SO excited when I logged on today. I found out I was a grand prize winner over at the CDAC blog hop from last week!! I won the ribbon organizer. Considering all my ribbons are in a basket at the moment I can REALLY use it! Woohoo, doin the happy dance!
Ok, so now for my post. Squigglefly challenged us to do a clean and simple Christmas Card. I find myself always trying to push the envelope on embellishments and bling. But some cards are just great without it. I chose "Cappuchino Snowman" because he reminded me of home. The last two weeks especially I've REALLY been missin my family and friends. So the coffee sentiment was at the top of my list. Plus he's so darn cute. I colored him with my Prisma's. I embossed the background paper with snowflakes and mounted my cutie pie on that. Then it was just too plain so I added the snowflakes which were cut from my cricut and the sentiment. It still didn't look quite finished so I added some snowflake brads I found in my stash. And then.......I know, clean and SIMPLE, BUT......I added just a little bit of stickles to the snowflakes and just the tiniest amount of flock to the cappucino, can't have it without the whip cream!
So there ya go. Clean and simple, or as simple as I could muster today!
I'm entering it into the following challenge:
