Snowman Christmas Card

Howdy Crafters:
It is getting COLD here in lower Michigan and upper Michigan had snow already - what's with that!! LOL - Never-the-less, it is a good time to craft when the weather gets nippy! So my crafting began with a Christmas card by lifting  a sketch layout by one of the Bugaboo Design Team Members -Winter Wonderland is having a Christmas with Ribbon challenge so my added ribbon qualified me to enter that challenge as well.
Thanks for dropping by and be blessed! ~ Gail ~
