In the Meadow We Can Build a Snowman...

Hello again friends!  Yes, I've still got another card to share with you before Christmas, but this time it is more of a wintry type of card!
I wanted to send a Christmas card to someone out of the country, but I realize that it probably won't get there in time, so I thought if I made it a wintry New Year wishes type of card, it would be OK.  I also think it's a fun card to send because where she lives, they get no snow! :)

I know that this is one of the older Magnolia stamps, but I've always wanted this image and just got it a few months back and just now got around to getting it out to color!  I think it's adorable!
The colors on this look a bit different in the photograph, but I really love how it turned out.  I've used some Lawn Fawn paper for the background and the sentiment comes from Whimsy Stamps.
I just love this shinny silver ribbon from Stampin' Up!  So easy to work with!
All that was left was to add a doily and some sparkle and bling to complete it.
I'm glad that I got this out too because I almost forgot to enter some challenges that I wanted to get in on before the time ran out!

Here's the challenges I'd like to enter this for:
Magnolia-licious - Holiday Blog Hop (Christmas or Winter)
Magnolia-licious - Doilies
CRAFT Challenge - Sketch
The ABC Challenge - "B" for Blue, Bows, & Bling
Simon Says - bling it on!
The Crafter's Cafe - Make it Sparkle
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Crafty Little Fairies - anything goes
Creative Knockouts - Winter Wonderland
Stamp & Create with Magnolia - Winter Snowflakes

I'm not sure if I'll be back again with another Christmas card before Christmas or not, but I do have a few Christmas style images already colored and ready to be put on a card.  Although it would probably be smart to save them for next year's Christmas cards! LOL!!  As always, I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say hello!  Enjoy your weekend! :)
