Festive Friday # 12 ~ Trigger Challenge "Snow" & Merry Monday

The Trigger Challenge over at the Festive Friday Blog is the trigger word "SNOW"...and what better do make than a snowman? ...especially a cute one...and one that has has never seen ink before!!  so here it is:
Since we live in the Portland, Oregon area, we really don't see much snow, so I thought the sentiment "winter joy" was perfect!  We would love to have maybe two days of lots of snow...enough so there is no school and we can all go out and make snowmen and snow angels!!  This stamp is from Sweet November...it is one that I won for a challenge.  I colored it in with copics and the sentiment is from a Unity Stamp.  I added some Papertrey Pattern paper to the sides of the snowman and then adhered it to a white card base with foam adhesive.
Go play with some snow and enter this fun challenge...click on the blue Festive Friday above to access the challenge!!

I decided this card could also go into the Merry Monday Challenge where for the whole month of July it is "anything goes"...you can link up until Sunday, August 4th.

  2. After seeing so many snowman cards I feel like I need to run and get a sweatshirt to put to keep me warm from all the snow. This is just too cute...he reminds me of the snowman from the movie Jack Frost.
