Stampin' Up!'s Frosty Friends

A big welcome to my new follower, Sudha.  Thanks so much for choosing to follow me and I hope to see you visiting often! 

Here I am running late for CAS - Colours and Sketches again.  I didn't get round to joining in the colour challenge last week so definitely wanted to join in with the sketch.  A big thank you to the ladies for choosing my card as Top Pick for week 1.  I was so thrilled! 

Here's this week's sketch -

You must think I only have snowmen stamp sets with a couple of baubles thrown in for good measure.  I don't but I'm so enjoying using these stamp sets and Stampin' Up!'s Frosty Friends seemed a super match for this sketch.  I did use a new embossing folder to me - Petals a Plenty.  I've loved this folder when I've seen it on other blogs.  

I've started with a card base of Garden Green and added a panel of Whisper White.  The ribbon tag is Cherry Cobbler embossed with the Petals a Plenty Folder.  It gives a deep rich emboss.  I stamped my Frosty Friends in Night of Navy and coloured with the Regals Stampin' Write Markers.  I love colouring with the brush tip it's just like using a paint brush.  This was then matted onto another panel of Garden Green.  The panel was popped up on Dimensionals.

Don't you love the font of the sentiment?  It's from More Merry Messages and was stamped in Night of Navy.  

This was a commission request from my husband to give to his colleagues.  Cartoony was the only clue he gave me!  Hope they like them. 

Can you believe Christmas is next week?  Thanks for coming in by. x

Ouch! Sounds like your hubby could have been a youtube sensation if someone had filmed his fall!! ;-) So glad that he didn't hurt himself.

Have a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
