Feelin' Festive Tonight!

Hello my lovely friends, I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderufl weekend! I'm totally feeling the holiday spirit creeping up on me and I can tell ya from here til December 24th, I'll be making A LOT of Christmas stuff lol. I checked out this weekend's Inspiration Challenge at SCS and it was the coolest! I spent a good hour gazing through the online store of Sally Meekin's Ceramics and fell in love with her work! Sally's designs is miniature ceramic artwork and it'so delightful and unique with a touch of nostalgia, I just love it! I chose to use this precious Christmas Manger Teapot for inspiration on my card below. I couldn't help but think of the sweet little baby Jesus from Cricut's Winter Frolic cartridge and quickly went to work. I really enjoyed making this one :)

Mr. Snowman from My Creative Time's All Around Accessories set was calling to me so I couldn't neglect him! I stamped him in Memento's tuxedo black and filled him in with white liquid applique and got tickled pink like I always do when I heated it up and watched it get puffy!! :D  Round is a great shape--when you're a snowman, hehe--so I cut the scalloped circle card from my Wild Card cartridge at 5 1/2", layered with green patterned paper and a white doily. I just added a few embellies that seemed to feel right without much tought so I'm not sure if it's a perfect look but that's okay too :)
