Holiday cheer today

Here's something cheery and holiday-ish on this late November Tuesday. 
Do you feel like me, that it isn't very Christmasy for right after Thanksgiving? Must be the fact that turkey day came so early this year and December doesn't even start until the end of the week.
Here's instructions for my card.
I embossed the frame (Sizzix) with this new stamping/embossing set I picked up earlier this fall. I actually used white pigment ink on the folder so when it embossed the frame stayed green and the card got this white grungy look. Then I took some green Twinkling H2O's and painted the frame-though you miss the sparkle here.
Inside the frame I punched a circle on silver sparkley paper and I also die cut the snowflake (Cheery Lynn). I went onto the card and added some red Viva paint pen dots and some red Stickles to the bow on the embossed frame.
Then I added the snowman-(Paper Smooches) and the words are from Technique Tuesday/Allie Edwards.
Here's a close up.
Not much else new to report today
so have a great Tuesday and
thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi Erika,
How are you? I love your cards, the snowman is very cute.

I also happen to notice your header, how could I not. That is an amazing photo! It has a very mystical mood with the dark shadows and then the beautiful bright reflected sky. Of course I love dogs as well. Nicely done.
Thanks for popping by my blog and for your supportive comments.
See you again soon!
