Christmas Card Using CTMH Markers and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi fellow bloggers, followers and friends.  I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving with their family and friends.  Thanksgiving is such a nice time of the year for celebrating life, appreciating who we are and what we have including the blessings of family and good friends. 
 
We have another new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #38 - Let It Snow.  We want to see snow on your cards.  Stop by and see all the fabulous creations by the DT and enter our challenge for a chance at two sponsor prizes.  Our sponsors this week are Bugaboo stamps and QKR Stampede.  Our guest designer is Valerie.  Check out her blog for more of her wonderful creations.
 
I chose to create a card with "Snowman Skates" from Bugaboo Stamp; which I made into a Christmas card.  The sentiment is also from Bugaboo stamps.  The inside is stamped with CTMH "Christmas Love" stamp set.
