A Very Merry Christmas

Yesterday I received some happy mail in the form of my first package from i {heart} papers. Woot! It was hilarious, because we had just gotten home from the grocery store, and both of the boys were crazy cranky, and I actually said, "Just hold your horses, Mama has to look at her new papers!" Yeah. As if they care.... or listened!

I decided it was only fitting that my first card for i {heart} papers used a sketch from i {heart} 2 stamp. ;o) You can see the sketch here. This is the first time I've ever done one of Jen's sketches, and I have to say I love it! Here is my take on the sketch:




Is that not the cutest snowman ever? I just love this card, and I think it might have to be one of my Christmas cards for this year. It's so cute, but soooo easy, which works well when you're mass producing. And check out the blue paper. I stamped the snowflakes so it looked like they were falling, and building up at the bottom. Fun stuff, eh?

I don't have a lot to ramble about today (shocker!), so I'll leave you with the ingredients. Be sure to check out the store if you haven't already, and remember they carry more than just papers!
