You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Winter Birthday Card

It's still winter and several challenges have themes of snowmen, snow, and winter celebrations.  This card looks simple, although it did take a bit of work, and I like how it came out.

The snowman was cut from Cricut's A Quilted Christmas; the  Birthday sign was cut from the Phrases cartridge and modified slightly so it would look like it was flying from the pole (toothpick).  The large snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch and they are decorated with some rhinestones and diamond stickles.  The stickles also add touches to the snow.  The background paper is a leftover from some Christmas paper.

I am entering this little guy in the following challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations - snowmen
Bitten By The Bug 2 - Frosty the Snowman
Whimsical Wednesday at Whimsical Designs- Winter Wonderland - Sparkle and 1 or more snowflakes
Crafts with Cutters at My Papercrafting - Chilly Celebration

Happy Creating.
Rae Ann
