Happy first day of May! :)
I love this month,it's one of my fave: flowers bloom, the days are getting longer everyday, all gardens are beautiful and my birthday is coming! ihih!! :) 
So today i woke up happy and that means.. Christmas card! Ahaha! I really don't know why, but as the srping arrives i'm dreaming of cold weather, chocolate, Christmas again! 
The Merry Monday Challenge is perfect when you miss Christ,as season and winter.. so i'm goin to join them.. Be sure to come over to their blog to play! :)
Here's my card...


I love this bear so much! Honestly i'm loving all Avery Elle stamps and dies more and more every new release..! :) And i finally got the FA La La Clear stamps and i'm the happies girl in the town!! Those sentiments are perfect and so .. i don't know how to tell it in english, but their style is unique and the font is amazing!! :)
Here i did a little masking on the bear to create a light blue sky to draw some little white dot and create a snowy sky illusion. then i stamped my sentiment and all the wooden logs with some shades of brow ( they are all diy ink- memento drops). Next i wanna give this card some interest so i created this fringe made out of vellum that soften the woody background and it's like falling snow! :)
Here's a detail...


Finally i add some details like the die-cut snowflakes ( by Lawn Fawn ) on the top left corner, the red ribbon, the gold twine and those pinecones (also by Lawn Fawn).
