Frosty Friends

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Great Impressions Blog. The countdown to Christmas continues and it's now only 11 days away. Hope all your plans are on target.

I have another Christmas card to show you today. I wanted to experiment with distress markers and an aqua painter water brush. This super cute snowman stamp - "frosty Friends G289 was the perfect stamp to use.

I paired my image up with patterned paper from the Basic Gray "fruitcake collection".
Added a twine bow, a banner flag with my sentiment from the stamp "It's Christmas - D453 and that completed my card.

This would also make a great card for a winter birthday or a Christmas thank you note. All the stamps are available in the online store.

That's all from me for today so until next time...........
