A Sweet Tweet

Lately it seems all I have time to do is a quick card - so here's another one.  The image of that darling snowman can be found at From the Heart Stamps for their monthly progressive challenge.  I know I'll be using this one again for Christmas cards this year too.

To dress up the card at least a tiny bit I added the red and white polka dot paper at the top and the gold cording.  That's about it folks.  Hopefully I'll start having a little more time this next month and get my brain un-fried at the same time.  I've got the mojo to go back and make a card and then when I get there I seem to stare at everything for a long time - and that's it.   I AM very good at ordering new things though - what's the deal with that I wonder!  It's always nice to stare at new things.  HA!

I'll also take this to the Rudolph's Day Challenge.  

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

awww, this is such a cute image, and I love that little bluebird with the candy cane! The polka dot panel and gold cording was all this great CAS card needed. Hmmmm......I have a knack for ordering new things too.......it must be contagious?!

Such a darling image, love the bird bringing the candy cane. Your touch of paper and sentiment was all that was needed to to make this a real nice card. I noticed that you added polka dots to the scarf with goes perfectly with the paper. You may be making them quick but you are still making them great.
Enjoy the weekend.

Cute image! I think I should try and make some "snow" and winter cards in the next couple of days. It might me me feel cooler when the heat and humidity hits here.

This is super cute, Lynn! I love how you added little dots to his scarf! Coordinates beautifully with the polka-dot paper! I like the gold twine too! Hope things will settle down a bit and you can get into a routine. Hoping Jim is steadily improving. Sending big hugs!

It's wonderful, Lynn! Love that tiny blue bird and the polka dots not only on the dp but also how you put them on the snowman's scarf. What a fabulous touch. :-D

Love the CAS card and the snowman is cute, cute, cute! The red dotted banner is the perfect contrast.
Oh, and your mojo wasn't gone, it was merely busy.

LOL, Lynn, I think we all would rather stare at new things than the same old things! I know I do! This is an adorable snowman and I love the polka dot paper! Polka dots always make a fun card!

A cute little Snowy with his lovely little bluebird flying in with his candy cane. Love this image, and adding in the festive red paper added just more icing on the cake. It's bright & cheery, oh so cute, and would be terrific mass produced, I should think. Had to smile at your mojo & good intentions. It's the same here. I gather out stuff to make an idea, and then do something totally different. And have to put away all supplies I didn't use. (or not). Yep, if in doubt, we stare & think. This one is great. You did good, kid! TFS & good to see it at Rudy Day. Hugs

Cute CAS designs are by far the best for Christmas cards if you have lots to make...and this definitely fits the bill! Such an adorable image and I always love a bit of polka dot DP!

Why is it that when mojo is on the run we turn to buying new stash...I'm pretty sure that's a common thing with crafters...I know I do it! Good to hear your mojo is coming back though :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
