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…
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
