Snowmen Easel Card

I got an email from My Scrap Chicks.  It had this adorable card made from one of their svg files.  It was so cute I bought the file and made this card.  The hardest part of the whole process was choosing what paper to use.  That always takes me longer than anything.  Anyone else like that?

I uploaded the svg into Cricut Design Space and cut it out.  The sentiment doesn't come with the card so I had to insert the text for my Explore to write it.  I shaded the snowmen with chalk and added some to the cheeks.  I think this little card would bring cheer to whoever receives it.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  My Scrap Chicks has lots of cute files for use with your cutting machine.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Kit 'n' Cat

Oh my goodness.  This time change is messing with me.  It is only 6:00pm and it is dark.  Makes me want to go to bed.  Heard a really good sermon on Heaven this morning at church.  That always makes the afternoon go better

The card I'm featuring today is one I made with one of Digistamps4Joy's digis.  Her name is Kit 'n' Cat.  She was drawn by JenLee.
