It's a 2-fer today!! Merry Monday and Jingle Belles

Isn't it great when you can make one card and have two challenge entries, I have been trying to get this card made all week and finally today I got it done, what is great about it is it works for the Jingle Belles challenge too. I am so exciting to be following both these blogs as I'm getting a stash of Christmas cards too.


This is only the second chalkboard technique card I have made they are a lot of fun. I also used some green chalk on the holly leaf, The sentiment and the Snowman (my fav) is from Impression Obsession/Lindsay Ostrom 


Close up of my "new" favourite sentiment,


Inside is finished with the snowman and the Let it Snow stamp from Stampabilities.

Challenges I'm entering this in:




Thanks for stopping by today and if you want to get a jump-start on your Holiday cards check out both the challenges.

Great minds think alike, Barb! I combined these two challenges, too. Of course, that means one card made instead of two... oh well. Your card looks great! Love that snowman.
