Our Holiday Card

Today I'm going to share with you our family Christmas card.  I made this snowman back in March.  It seems that it's about the only time of the year we get a good sticky snow to make a decent snowman.

Throughout the year I had gotten offers for free 4" x 6" prints and of course I took advantage of it.  Some of the offers I only had to pay the postage and others I didn't even have to pay that.  You can't beat that deal!!  

I love to make snowmen and this guy was fun.  Except when he started to melt.  He was kind of freaky looking.  The eyes and mouth (and buttons too) are made from a sliced dowel that I painted black.  I drilled a hole in the back and suck in a 1/4" dowel so it was easy to poke into the snowman and it stayed better too.  But when it melts you begin to see the 1/4" dowels and it's kind of creepy!!  LOL  If I get the opportunity to make one this season I will take pictures as it's melting so you can see what I mean!  I will warn you, it IS creepy to look at!!! LOL

I wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas,
