Snow Much Fun!

Happy snowy Monday everyone! Today in Halifax it is chilly and icy, but tomorrow it's supposed to POUR! Gotta love winter in Eastern Canada... I wasn't planning to post today, but I am home with a munchikin with the stomach flu, and had a few crafting moments, so here is an extra post. I had some left over snowmen that I stamped with my PKS. I decided to use it to make a cute wintry card. Here it is:

So here are the details - I cut the snowman from Doodlecharms, I used the Hide Contour button on my to eliminate the snowman's face. Then I was able to stamp his face with my Happy Lashes stamps from Peachy Keen. Isn't he adorable all doodled up like that?? I tore some paper to make the snowy hills, and inked them up with my SU inks, and adhered them to a piece of blue reflections cardstock that I embossed with my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder. I created the little label the sentiment is on on my Gypsy. It is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I manipulated the size, so it would fit my sentiment, and then i welded two small rectangle to the end so the ribbon would slip right through. I then inked the edges with pink and stamped it with a sentiment from CTMH. The snowflakes were punched from an old punch I got years ago, and I inked the edges with some pink and blue SU inks. I used my Sakura Jelly Roll pens to do some doodling.

I hope you all like the little card I created today. Thanks for hanging out with me! See you back her in a day or two.

Your card is sooo cute! I love the stamped face you used. He looks so happy.
The weather here in NB is so wonky too. It just can't seem to make up it's mind. I would be happy if it just decided spring was here and stuck with it! :D We have had robins at our bird feeder last weekend.
Hope your little guy is feeling better soon! :)
