Frosty Friends at Sunset

I finally found time to finish a card and actually spent 2 hours last night editing photos so I'd have something to put on my blog. Now to find time to share them.  It's such a crazy time of year!  Fun but crazy!

This is a bit non-traditional and I'm not sure if I will use it for a Christmas card or a holiday thank you so I haven't added a sentiment yet.


The sunset is inspired by the view from my kitchen at sunset! I love seeing the red through the trees.

This card's for several challenges, although some have probably closed the door since I started this.

One Layer Wednesday  to put snow on a one layer card.

Less is More #97  which is a One Layer Week with a theme ALL IN A ROW.

Thanks for stopping by during this busy time.

Very fun Bonnie. Looks like it would make a great Valentines card. Here in Oregon we are usually still making snowmen right about then and many have hearts added to them for that day. Thanks for sharing the joy in your craft and your sunsets.

Love the non-traditional depiction of snowmen with a sunset! I'd never have thought of doing that. I'm stuck in a traditional rut with my Christmas cards!
