Isn't this the cutest snowman?

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. We had Christmas at our house with the family, we had a great time and good food. I ordered BBQ and the girls brought side dishes. We like to keep it simple on Christmas and enjoy our day together.

I just had to do one more black and red card this year. I hope you are not sick of seeing this dp as it is my favorite I also am in love with this cute snowman that is hand drawn by Deena Perreault. I think this little guy might be on all my Christmas cards next year. If you would like to see more of Deena's work, you can visit her blog or visit her Etsy store -

It was good to make a card since I have taken about two weeks off. I am ready to get back in the swing of things.

I hope you all have safe and Happy New Year.
