Christmas With the Cuties---BEGINNING WITH B---February 2019

Howdy all!  I hope you are all well.  Here in Pennsylvania, we are experiencing very high winds.  At my job today, we had some power, but not enough to actually do any work, plus we had no heat.  We sat there until 9:45, when we were allowed to go home.  Luckily, we will still get paid for an 8-hour day!  And the boss brought us Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts, which was very nice.

So anyway, I am here today to share with you the Christmas card I made for the current Christmas With The Cuties challenge:  BEGINNING WITH B.

My card actually contains 3 Bugaboo images that I merged together; Snowman Broom, Snowman Jingle Bell, and Snowman Bells.  I just thought these guys would look cute in the same scene, LOL!  Luckily, merging these images meant that I have quite a few B's on my card:  my BLACK layer, BLUE, BOWS, BELLS, BIRD, and BROOM.  Looking at it now, I suppose I could have also added BRIM, for the top hats.  I colored these handsome fellas with alcohol markers, added some Star Dust Stickles to the snow on the ground, and also in some spots on the snowmen.  To make the bells sparkle too, I went over them with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.


12 Months of Christmas Link Up #50:  ATG or optional "penguin power" theme
ABC Christmas:  C for Candy, or D for Decorations (we use bells to decorate with, right?)
Di's Digi Challenge:  Include an Animal (see the tiny bird?)

CHNC #426:  ATG Christmas, or use some gold option
Jingle Belles:  All the Glitters
Winter Wonderland:  ATG, tribute to Eileen
Papercraft challenge #31:  All the Critters

That will be all for now, friends!  Please do stop by the Christmas With The Cuties blog and join in on the BEGINNING WITH B fun!

Take care, and God Bless!

  9. What a cute winter card with awesome coloring. So blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and would like to invite you again to link with us at the new challenge that started today. Leaving you with God's Word in 1 John 2:15-17 which says, "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever." Have a blessed and wonderful week.
