Snowman Christmas Card with CTMH Snow Friends, CTMH Holiday Jingle

This is another card inspired by the wonderful Kathy Carlson (see her card here).  I've had this retired blue gingham paper in my stash for about 1.5 years so I was happy to find a cute card to inspire me to USE some of my stash!  Love the combination of Heavenly Blue and Cranberry - what a cheerful pop!  My darling daughter and I had a blast making a couple of these cards for our Christmas sending this year.  She likes doing the watercolor pencil coloring for me on my cards.  I love doing projects like this with my kids - the kids have fun playing in "mommy's room" and we get some one on one chatting time while we work.  I've also been told by our neurologist that scrapbooking is good for the brain!  It helps with the planning and visual processing parts of our brains and as I've been teaching my kids - you have to use your math skills to figure out paper maximization!

Materials Used:
Paper:  Evensong Creative Basics (retired), Heavenly Blue Gingham (retired)
Ink:  Cranberry, Cocoa (snowmen)

Love the card. I may even get out my snowmen today.
I love that your children like to play in your scraproom. Mine come in and dictate to me what they want me to make. Eventually they will try their hand at it. After Christmas I give them a few designs to choose from then they make their thank you cards themselves.
I tried to teach my up-line that you have to use math to figure out paper maximization etc... She doesn't believe me. Usually cuz I work it out form her. I guess you could call me an enabler. Most of my friends do - grins - .
