A Card!! YAY!!!

I l aughed today when I saw Danielle's post that she finally made a card because I feel the same way! I have been so focussed on gifts and projects, that I realized I had not made a card in weeks! I really have missed doing the sketch challenges, so I hope to start back in with some Holiday cards.

This image, however, is so large, there was not much room for much else. This is another of my dusty Christmas stamps (dated 2001) from Stampendous called Snow Lights. I love how big this snowman is. I am not too good at coloring snowmen, though. Too much white! and I do not know what to do with it. I know you are supposed to use light blue as a highlight of some kind, but I am definitely a bit rusty in the coloring department.

The inside sentiment is an oldie from 1992! An Annette Watkins design (of which I seem to have many from those early 90's!)

Adorable card, Lauri.
No rust here...your coloring is perfect! I love the sentiment too.

I like the large image very much! It keeps things simple. The "vintage" sentiment inside is wonderful and timeless.
