Happy Monday, peeps! I made ham & cabbage yesterday for some company and we had a lovely time! However, the temps are just crazy – still feels like winter! They are calling for snow flurries this week! I guess Lesley must have known that…she chose a cute snowman theme for the Merry Monday crafters today:
I made two cards, because I wasn’t happy with the first one!!! I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:
and dusted off an old SU snowman punch for my merry little card:
This is a notecard-sized card, so the image is pretty small. I just realized I didn’t stamp a thing on this except the sentiment on the inside!!! I cut some snowy hills by hand, snow-glittered them all up and used a PTI diecut for the “merry”! I cut his little scarf by hand too:
Edited to add: This also qualifies for the Festive Friday challenge this week, to use "merry" on your card!!!
My original card used the same sketch, but it was just lacking something. Even the addition of paper-piecing and Dazzling Diamonds glitter didn’t help it:
But I will still save it for my Christmas card stash!
I KNOW that there are lots of people who love snowmen, so I hope you will play along with our challenge this week! Can’t wait to see what you create. And be sure to stop by the Always Playing with Paper blog to be inspired by the other designers as well!
I usually spoon Cassidy’s yogurt into a separate cup because she doesn’t eat it all. This particular day, she wanted to do it “by self”…and she’s getting pretty good at it!
