Snowman Card

My aunt asked me to make her some Christmas cards this year. Here is one of the designs I came up with for her. She loves snowmen, so I thought this would be perfect for her. The paper is Making Memories Christmas line from last year. The tag and snowman are Cuttlebug dies. I don't know if you can tell, but the snowman is cut out of felt. I actually cut him twice, once on felt and then on Kraft cardstock to give him arms. Then I cut the arms off the felt and glued the two together. A bit of chalking to give him a mouth and some googlie eyes and you have a cute little snow friend. :)

Hope you all have a Wonderful Wednesday. We are cleaning today. Yay cleaning. Or not.

Oh, and one more thing. I am creating a new behavior/chore chart for my boys. We are trying to focus on respect. Respecting each other, ourselves and our home. I want to create a fancy-schmancy sign of sorts with an easy to understand definition of respect. Any ideas on how to word it? I'd really really appreciate any input you all might have. Thanks! :)

Pin It!

What a stinkin' cute card! Did she love the idea? Go to the Bible for excellent examples of respect for your children. The 10 Commandments and honor thy mother and father are a great place to start! Good luck and keep us updated! :o)

This is adorable! I'm so far behind on blog comments right now, I have to say I love all of the cards I haven't commented on yet. Lame, I know, but this is my one massive comment. Hurray for productive time! I need some of that. And craft time. And me time. And, well, just time in general. You know how it goes! That cupcake is super cute in the top post today. I think we talked about our love/hate relationship with cc sets before. Do you love that whole set?
