Christmas Snowman Joy

Another great digi image from Designed2Delight !!  Faith is very good about making me think outside my comfort zone.  Christmas in July was not the problem, I already have my Christmas cards designed and cut out.  If I didn't they would not get out before Christmas Eve (lol).  But I am from South Texas and try to steer away from snowmen and snow flakes.  I do like them and have a lot of them, but for some reason feel funny saying "Have a White Christmas" or something similar while I am wearing shorts for Christmas.  This weeks image is "Christmas Snowman Joy".  What is funny is that after I have received the new image, I find something that helps me design a card.  Today I backlinked to a Scrapbook Trends blog online magazine.  To access the free online magazine, click on Freebies and scroll down to the December 24th entry.  If you read at the bottom of this entry,  Gift #4 is a Cards January 2010 Online Issue.  Click on it and you find a whole lot of beautiful cards.  I actually used components of several of the cards in this issue to make my card.
