Woodsy Snowman & Music Saves My Soul

Pin It

Chalk up another card to my weakness for snowmen. I saw this image on sale last summer and had to buy it. Not only was it cute but it was on sale. How could a girl walk away from that? I am finally getting the chance to ink him up.

I haven’t had a chance to play along with Marcea’s Music Saves My Soul Saturday for a few weeks. Here is a song that I have been listing to in my Christmas playlist over the past week. If you like the song, there is a link below the video on YouTube to download it for free.

If you would like to play along and share a song, stop by Marcea’s blog to link up!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green.
