  1. Hi Carole, What a cutie! It feels almost cold enough here to snow, just in time for Christmas in July... love the layers of netting and pompom trim adds a real wintry feel to the card. Have a wonderful week... Megan

  2. Marvellous Christmas card Carole! The snowman is really cute and looks fab in his blue and red scarf. Love your embellishing of the card especially the pearl snowflakes on the felt ones, the lovely button and the pom pom trim, so pretty (I'd put that on my wish list but it's a tad far to travel for it :D.
