There's Snowman Like You

Hello crafty peeps! I hope you are all surviving the pre-holiday madness, as we count down the hours until the big day. I am hand-making a lot of gifts this year, so I have been confined to my craft room pretty much 24/7, but I'm definitely not complaining!

One of my favorite elements to use on my Christmas cards is snowmen. I don't know what it is about them, but I just love the little buggers! This particular card started out being kind of all over the place because I didn't really have a concrete plan in my head, but I think it came together okay in the end....
