Merry Christmas to all Friends with Flair!

Yes, you heard it right...this will be the last Friends With Flair Friday for 2009!
Can you believe it will be 2010 in...14 days?!  Can you believe Christmas is in...7 days?!  I am totally NOT ready, are you?
It's been a fun year participating in Unity hops and challenges...can you believe that they are such a great company?!

Okay...so now, can you believe that I had not inked up the snowman from the {ippity} Kissmas & Mistletoe set yet?!  So, of course, I just had to!  I inked him up with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Snow Cap.
I embossed the white c/s with a Sizzix Texture Plate, (can't see it that well in the picture) and embossed the sentiment in silver.  Then, I used this stuff called Snow Writer, by DecoArt to outline the white hills and make the snow falling, and covered it all in Diamond Dust.  The sparkle looks cool IRL!  After I did this, I felt this card had enough texture and shine, so I just added a scarf to the snowman and Stickled him some buttons:

From Unity Projects
Stamps: {ippity} Kissmas & Mistletoe
Cardstock: SU! Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White
Ink: Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber-Snow Cap

A couple of years ago, I put this quote in my Christmas cards...luv this:
 "And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before...
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?!" ~Dr. Seuss
Hope your Christmas 'means a little bit more' too!  Happy, Happy Holiday's!  Be safe, and above all, ENJOY and BELIEVE! *smile*
