Another Snow Much Fun


I love the snowmen in the Snow Much Fun set.  They are so easy to work with and have been perfect for me to use for my commission cards.  This is another in a set for my Aunt to give to her grandchildren.  This time, her teenage granddaughter, so I've given him a more grown up feel and trendy colours.  

Don't you love purple and green together?  I've used Certainly Celery and Perfect Plum on my card today.  The background panel was embossed with Perfect Polka Dots.  I stamped my snowman in Marina Mist then punched him out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  I've coloured him using Stampin' Write Markers from my subtles pack.  He has a little sparkle on his buttons and pom pom from using Silver Dazzling Details Glitter Glue.  I attached him to the main panel using Dimensionals.  "Granddaughter" and "Merry Christmas" are from For My Family and I used the Decorative Label Punch to punch them out.  Then I attached them under the main panel.  

This weeks cue card from CASology is Time 


It took me a bit of time to think about this.  Then I thought about taking time out.  So my card is about taking time to enjoy the simple things in life such as playing in the snow, sledging, snow ball fights, building snow men.  I'm the first to complain when the snow arrives.  It's difficult to get about and it's cold and I hate driving in it.  But it does make us all slow down, literally.  I've had great fun days with my kids doing all those snowy activities when adults can also be kids again.  
When's the last time you sledged down a hill? 

Ok enough rambling and having said all that please don't snow yet!!! 

I'd also like to enter this into Addicted to CAS which has a code word of Snow.



Thanks for your visit.  Keep cosy. x

Love these colors and it's been a long time since I sledded down a hill or even took the time to make a snowball!

Hi Aileen - love the Snowman and your beautiful card design (Certain Celery is one of my all-time favourite SU colours).

I like to see the snow when it's clean and crisp, but it's not so good when it starts to get sludgy! The last time I went downhill in the snow (on a sledge)!!, was about 40 years ago when my Daughter and Son were very young!!
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx
