Merry Christmas......{PKS Style}

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!!
We have a busy weekend planned with a trip to the lake for some much need relaxation, swimming and fishing before the upcoming football season begins for my oldest. I can not wait till the season gets into full swing but before we get to being tied to the football field we are going to enjoy the last of our weekend getaways for a bit.
With that being said I wanted to play along with this week's Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge which is this gorgeous photo inspiration and the current sketch from 
Create a project using the photo as inspiration. Interpret the photo ANY way you'd like, just be sure to let us in on your creative process!
For my card I flipped the sketch and I know there is nothing in this inspiration picture that says Christmas but there are a few other challenges I wanted to enter this into as well and since I had some papers that were a perfect match to the color combo I thought I would use the new July SOTM kit as well. So here is my card...hope you like my non traditional colored Christmas Card :)
Like I said above,  I used the new July SOTM and the matching SVG for the snowman that comes with the monthly stamp club. After cutting him out with my cameo, stamping him using memento tuxedo black ink and coloring his cute face using my copics, I paper pieced his hat, scarf and buttons using an older Recollections Christmas paper pad that I found while going though my stash. Next I designed my card LO in the silhouette studio to match the current Mojo Monday sketch and then cut out all my pieces. I had to add some machine stitching to all my mats, used some Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine, die cut the tags from My Creative Time~Chunky Jar Accessories Stamp Set, and stamped my Merry Christmas sentiment from the July SOTM set.

So there you have it! What do you think??? Such a fun card, right???
Well that is all I have for you....I am off for the weekend but will try to catch up on everyone's projects during the weekend :)
