Merry Monday 103


Happy Monday, peeps!  It’s another Merry Monday challenge!  Kathy has a fun challenge for us:  snowmen!  I think I have had enough snow for a while, but I can handle a little snowman!

And my image IS a little snowman!  Here you go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 103 Snowman Stampin

This is a simple card, flat and easy to mail!  I stamped my image from Artistic Outpost in Basic Gray on some Naturals White cardstock, masked it, then stamped a CTMH Christmas word collage behind it in Sahara Sand.  Then I colored the image with reinkers and an aquapainter:


I mounted it on some circular mats of Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler; the DP is from Simple Stories’ Handmade Holiday, and it worked on the inside as well as the outside:


So, now let’s see what you make with a snowman!  Share it with us over at the Merry Monday blog and check out what the other designers did as well!  You’ll be glad you got a headstart on your Christmas cards!

You know when your children are in another room, and it gets very, very quiet?  That’s a sure sign they’re doing something they’re not supposed to!  In Cassidy’s case, she was treating her baby’s diaper rash with the real stuff:




Yep….two tubes of Desitin and a tube of Lotrimin….slathered liberally!  She didn’t use it all, but we had to do some time in the tub to get rid of what she did use!


Enjoy your day!

  3. Love the snowman on the colorful stitched circles. Her baby is certainly safe from diaper rash now! It reminds me of my youngest son when he was 4. I went to see what he was doing and he was covered in Noxema!

  4. Love this, LeAnne! Another beautiful vintage feel to this sweet snowman card. Love everything about it! Have a great week! :)

  5. Another beautiful (and flat, easy to mail card). I am a little jealous of how you come up with flat cards, I for some reason, need lots of stuff on mine. Love your little snowman and the inside of your card is beautiful too!

    Deanne :)

  6. Yep, that's just about the amount of snow I can handle! Cute card LeAnne. What a little stinker she was and look at you with the sneaky photos LOL!!!

  7. Adorable card LeAnne, I love the background you created and your snowman is so cute.

  8. Super sweet snowman, LeAnne. Great paper! Love it.

  9. LOVE your card, LeAnne! That vintage snowman is just adorable! (as is your little sweetie...she cracks me up!)

  10. Love that snowman and the stitched circles! (They're on my list.) And that paper is awesome! Love the country feel! LOL, that baby should never be bothered with diaper rash again!

    I'm not going to comment on each post that I just caught up with, but you had an awesome week last week!

  11. What a lovely card, Love the snowflakes and the kraft :) and ur daughter is so adorable, a cutie pie !!

  12. Well it took me all day to get back here and tell you that is sweet card.
    Oh yes the quiet what are you up to times! Oh my goodness. She is one busy little mommy. That baby will never have a diaper rash on her belly again after all of that good stuff on there. LOL

  13. Ha! Ha! Remember my daughter doing something similar when she was 3. She was covered in it from head to toe!! Enjoy the moments!

  14. Love the colors and the almost rustic feel this card has (can you say rustic about a card? anyway - it's a compliment!) Too too funny about that diaper rash treatment :)

  15. Love the vintage look of your card, LeAnne and that snowman is too cute! (Ain't no way that baby's getting a diaper rash now LOL!)

  16. Well, if that doesn't cure the diaper rash, nothing will... oh my! I love your vintage snowman card and the fact that you decorated the inside as well.

  17. Such a cute wee snowman. The background perfectly compliments it. Love the vintage look too.

  18. Yes, just a little snowman….because I feel the same as you!! :-) Such a pretty vintage look on this, LeAnne!
