Be merry...

I love the holiday sentiment "be merry." It always reminds me of Bobby McFerrin's hit song "Don't Worry, Be Happy." After all the hard work to prepare for Christmas, I like to sit back and just "be merry," and I wish the same for you!

This card was made with a snowman image from Dearie Dolls and a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. Oh yes - a couple of oval Spellbinder's dies, too.

Here's a little closer look at his cute image.  You can see that I added a couple of sparkly little snowflakes. What is not quite so obvious is that I used some red Liquid Pearls on those tiny little berries to give them more definition and dimension.

I colored the image with my ProMarkers. It was very quick because the bulk of the snowman only required a little shading with a very pale gray marker.

I also added a tiny bit of blue chalk to the background area of the image.

I dressed up the inside of the card just a bit with the snowflake embossing folder and a couple of scored lines.

This card was so much fun to make that I actually made several of them.
I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
Be merry!
