Snowmen Fall From Heaven Unassembled....

"In the meadow we can build a snowman...." kept playing over and over in my head so I decided I had to use this image from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Warm Winter digital stamp set. Aren't they just the cutest couple? But after printing and coloring the image on Friday, my mojo left me and I really struggled with the layout of this card. When I woke up Sunday morning, I knew what I wanted to do. It's not exactly as I envisioned but I am happy with the results.

I wanted to work on another card but just ran out of time. It was kind of a crazy weekend. I was able to meet up with some girl friends for coffee and breakfast on Saturday, decorate the Christmas tree, and take a family trip to the Grand Geneva to see their Christmas decorations and vote on my favorite Gingerbread house. On the sadder side of things, my husband's grandmother fell and broke her pelvis last week and possibly suffered a stroke on Saturday night. We are waiting for more information and praying for the best.

I hope to have more Christmas inspired posts for you later this week.

Please take a minute and check out what the rest of the DT was up to.

Hi Cheryl,
I have this snowman image on my craft table just waiting to made into a card! I love the sentiment you used and your coloring is great...the highlight on the hat is fantastic. Sorry to hear about your husbands grandma...I will pray for her and your family. It's hard enough when something like this happens, let alone around the holidays.

Fabulous card Cheryl! We didn't get any snow, but the surrounding areas had anywhere from 3-8 inches - I know that doesn't sound like much, but when you live in the desert and rarely get snow - well it tends to make for some excitement. ;)

And I meant to add - so sorry to read about your DH's grandmother - I'm saying a prayer for her now.

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
