Snowman Notes

Well, after some busy days at work, I am back. I made these cute little note pads for Christmas this year. They were teacher gifts and stocking stuffers. I even have one thrown in my purse. Here they are:





Pretty cute, huh? The snowman is cut from Doodlecharms. I used Peachy Keen's Happy Lashes to stamp his face. My jelly roll pens from Sakura did all the doodling. The cheeks were made with chalk and I used my markers from Stampin UP to color his nose and tongue. The stamp came from the dollar bin at Michaels. It has been altered slightly, I cut an image off it that I didn't like. I made the covers of the pad using old cereal boxes, cut the paper to fit and used my fabulous Bind it All to coil the pad. I love that tool!!

Oh he's absolutely adorable and I love your hand drawn doodles. I so wish I had a natural "knack" at doodling. Wonderful adorable card. Thank you so much for playing along with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters.
