Tickle...tickle...Come join the the Fun

Hello Fellow Crafters,

Sharing a Christmas card I made to tickle you to enter your Anything Goes plus Christmas cards into the bi-weekly My Besties UK Challenge going on through Sunday, November 16th.  You can enter your My Besties images up to 3 times and once without.

I love snowmen and this is one of many Sherri Baldy/My Besties has in her Etsy Shop. The one I am featuring today on my card is IMG382.

I wanted to do create a different background for my snowman and it took me awhile to figure out what I was going to do. I had fallen in love with this red checkered design paper. I first started to put my colored snowman on a tag. I laid it all down kept walking away and coming back to look a it and couldn't come up with anything else to put with him since I loved that design paper so much. So it finally hit me...I had a strip of the DP left from cutting the tag out and remembered from previous paper embellishments I have made wrapped box presents so...that is what I did.  I think so hard sometimes I forget to use the simple things. And also chose to use one of my many new Anna Griffin embossing folders for the background called 'Snowfall' and one of her snowflake dies.
