Friends Who Share!

At the last month's Stamp Till You Cramp, Tracy brought a couple of her own stamps with her. She brought this most adorable snowman from Stampabilities. And you ALL know how much I LOVE snowmen!!!! I asked her if I could make a couple images of it while she was here and being the sweet person she is she said I could!!! I colored one that night but set it aside to work on other projects (including those Christmas cards!!!!!).

Ok, now I can't say my Christmas cards are done but I am finished with the making of them part. I have them put together and I just have to put the inside piece in and they are ready to go into envelopes, have the labels put on, the return address, the stamp and to be sealed. My there's a lot of steps just to send out a card, isn't there? Most of it we don't think about until we do a mass mailing!!! Fortunately that only happens at Christmas time. Well, there's weddings too but I don't have that on any of my lists yet!!!

I used the snowflake background stamp from the "Festive Favorites" set. And I used the "Flannel Plaid" background stamp for the foreground. I stamped the image on watercolor paper using black Staz On. I blended the colors in and then layered the card. I used the SplitCoastStampers Challenge Sketch #153. It was this weeks layout and I really liked it. Plus the snowman was the perfect size for that sketch!!!

I added some silver cording in the middle of the card and I added some plastic snowflakes. They came in a fairly large package, including snowflake buttons. I got them at Michael's, with my coupon of course. They are found with all the other decorative buttons and they are there year round! I purchased these this past summer but they still have them, I just saw them last week when I was there.

This was a fun and quick card to make. Plus this guy is SO cute!!! Again I thank you Tracy for letting me use your stamp!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
