Merry Little Christmas

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm playing along with the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: "Let It Snow!" As you all know...I love snow...and especially during the holiday season!!!

Here's my card:

I absolutely ADORE Gus and Gertie from Taylored Expressions! Here they are on one of their "Holiday Adventures"----so super cute and totally festive! And I think the sentiments in this set are really sweet as well :)

I created the snowy backdrop with the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp, added a die-cut snow drift (MFT), stamped the snow drift with a sentiment (Taylored Expressions) and then added Gus and Gertie to the scene. This is one of the card designs I'm snail mailing to family and friends this year, so I made sure I kept it simple to avoid extra postage.

I hope you're having a great week so far!

Thanks for visiting!!!
