IB53 Mr Snowman

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Time for another cute Inspired By challenge!  The snowman on this card is the closest we've gotten to snow in a long time....just lots and lots of rain in our neck of the woods!  Here ya go:


And here's Laurel's fun prompt:


My card is a birthday card for someone special, and I used an old as well as a new set!  The old set is Snow Place, stamped in Memento Black, Balmy Blue and Poppy Parade, and the new set is a birthday set called Itty Bitty Birthdays!  I created a little frame to match the snowman's scarf from above, then cut it out with the new Stitched Rectangle dies - love them, they have stitching on both the inside and outside of the frame!  I added my snowman, altering the Santa hat a bit, gave him a colorful scarf, and mounted it on a snowy background along with a matted sentiment:


On the inside, I took the center part of the frame and used it as a background for some more birthday sentiments, also cut with the new rectangle dies:
  

I just love the little smile on this snowman and I hope it brings a smile to the recipient as well!  Hope you'll play along with us this week...we have some new designers at the IB blog...be sure to go check them out and give them some love AND show us what you create as well!! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Cassidy got some cousin time with Zion:


and Titus!  She was in her babysitting glory!
