Jingle Belles Christmas Challenge take 2 ~~ here we come a Washi-ing

I try to enter each week of the two week challenge at the Jingle Belle's Christmas challenge, and it's usually close to the end of the challenge. We went to the cottage this weekend, it's the first time this year, it takes me a while to get into the routine of what to take to craft with, we don't have the phone connected yet so I had no internet and I really took minimal with me, I even forgot white cardstock. Well we came home this morning, while unpacking I realized I forgot my phone cord so once it runs out of juice I'm only available when I'm home. Then getting ready to take pictures of the two cards I made while at the cottage I found out I left my camera there. Oh I hope the mind gets better as the summer goes on.  Blackberry Playbook to the rescue, although the pictures are not as clear (imho) I then took the pictures and had to try to remember how to send them via e-mail, that took me a good 15 minutes to figure that one out. It seems I had a comedy of errors and with that said here is my card.

I saw this challenge at CAS(E) this sketch! and thought what a sketch to combine with the washi tape challenge a the Jingle Belles Challenge. The image I uses is one of the first of many snowman stamps I bought. It is a 2000 Jolly Snowman from Stampendous which I stamped, coloured and fussy cut out. The die cut Merry Christmas is from my scrap box. Washi tape from Dollarama.

Close up of the super cute snowman.

Finished the inside with the year 2000 sentiment from Stampendous that goes with Jolly Snowman.
I embossed the scrap of patterned paper that was left over from the front.

I would like to enter this in:
