A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Cozy Snowman

I'm a bit of a stick-in-the-mud about traditional Christmas colours but I always make an exception for the Jingle Belles challenge when they do their fund-raising challenge for breast cancer.  Stephanie and Lauren who run the challenge each donate $2 for every pink Christmas card to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Here's my snowbaby staying cozy in her pink hat and scarf:

Stamped on watercolour paper, watercoloured, trimmed with a hemstitch square die, layered over pink cs, and
added fun flock to the pompom and brim of the hat.

Linking up with:
