Getting ready for Christmas...not yet.

I was in the bookmark-making phase. I've created this lovely snowman book mark from a Sparkle N Sprinkle set called "Merrry Crows."

In real life he is VERY sparkly! I just love the glitters!!
Normally, I am not a fan of creating Christmas cards. But this little guy was very easy to work with. He was just too adorable. You can not go wrong.
 When I think of Christmas, I think of burgundy red and gold colors. We always decorate our Christmas tree in "traditional" colors. THAT was before we had a little girl, now I see rainbow when I think of decorating the Christmas tree. Last year, our tree was pink and light blue! She insisted that the tree should be pink. To be honest, it wasn't too bad. If she could, Paige would paint the world a happy color.
I opted to go with the green color scheme for this little guy. He looked all bundled up and warm. That was the type of weather that we have been getting for the past week here: hot...and hot. His scarf was covered in micro fine glitter and flocking. I LOVE the flocking that Sparkle N Sprinkle carries! It is just so soft! I feels like a real scarf after I had applied it to the snowman's scarf.

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!

Cammy, this is a delightful bookmark! You've chosen the perfect hues of green. The shading on the layers and background looks amazing! Your snowman is cute as can be. I couldn't get over that you even had glitter on the tiniest portions of the die cut, too! Beautiful bookmark! I've pinned ya. LOL
