Let it snow....

Happy Thanksgiving!
     I waited until today to drop in this card as it makes me think of the Macy's Day Parade were Santa always comes at the end of it to start off the holidays.
     So, here is my Santa that I used nothing but Spellbinder dies to make him with.  :O)  I found a really cute card a few weeks ago that was made out of punches and then a similar card that was made from different cuts from the Cricut.  I really liked both cards, and even though I have a Cricut I decided that I wanted to try and make him out of my Spellbinders. 
     I had sooooooo much fun with this card and everything is made 100% out of my Spellbinder dies. I even was able to make the decorative strip and the inside of my card's background out of a set of Edgeabilities  from Donna Salazar that I have.  heehee... I have to tell you that if you are like me and have a bunch of Spellbinders' dies (or other dies) that you just had to have and don't use them as often as you thought you would, well then you really need to give this a try.  It makes me know that all that money was worth it.  lol..  Now all I have to buy is the postage stamp dies from Spellbinders that I can use a lot easier to make mattes behind my stamped images with.  lmbo.....
     I really wanted to make a turkey card out of my dies for today, but as my week has been super duper busy at work that just didn't happen.  :O(  Oh well, there is always next year.  Right? 
     Ok everyone, I am off to go play a little girls versus boys Wii bowling while the turkey is roasting away.  Hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
