Snow where to go!

Here we are half way through the month.  This is my last post for Pin and Tack as a DT member.  I have decided to step down at the end of my DT term (which was September to December), as I am getting really busy with other commitments and I would like to give the commitments I still have, my 100%.  Thank you Corrinne for letting me be part of your wonderful team.

Spark Your Creativity Challenge #4 is well under way and I know you are all busy getting ready for the holiday season.  However, I'm sure you all still managing to sneak in a little craft time - I certainly am :-)

Here is my little bit of half way inspiration for you.  My snowman is a digital image from the Polka Doodles CD Picknix Collection 2 - Gingerbread Twist.  I love this CD.

For this card I didn't want to over colour  my snowman in bright colours, as he is meant to look a bit tatty - so I used browns for his jacket to make him look a little worn out.

The Cuttlebug was used to emboss the lower layer with the Snow Flakes folder and also added some of those lovely snow flakes from the Winter Woodland cartridge (page 35).  The sentiment is from the Recollections Christmas stamp set and I stamped this before running the layer through the Cuttlebug.

I popped him up using some pop dots to add a little bit of dimension to the card.

The inside is the same as the one from earlier in the week.  I really like this snowman and he is from the same stamp set as the sentiment.

So, come on, one more challenge before you get swallowed up in the Christmas celebrations.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

  21. Karon, your cards always make me smile! :o) This snowman is adorable and you've colored him so beautifully. The embossing is stunning and I love how you added some snowflakes to the image base. :o) I also love how often you use image stamps on the interior for added sweetness... I don't do that nearly enough! Beautiful work as always, my friend!

    Hugs and blessings!
