Xmas is on it’s way …………hehe hoho!

This is year is drawing to a close and for the first time for many years, since I’ve been making cards, and thanks to the Design Teams that I am part of – I think I am actually making headway with my own stash of christmas cards – YAY !!!!!
It’s UMA’s sketch challenge #135 this sunday morning, and I have used again one of my new Tim Holtz xmas stamps and My Minds Eye christmas paper pad, that has been my trusted friend these last couple of christmas’s. I have distressed the outside edges of the design paper with Tim Holtz little distressing tool, then dressed them with distress stickles (old paper).
I was really pleased, I used slightly alternative christmas colours………and I added the ribbon in such a cack handed way it’s unbelievable LOL!!!!  but it turned out OK, didn’t it ?!?!?
I have subtly coloured this snowman with promarkers, and my new favourite colour for a cold icy feel is tea green.
