Snow Friends

There are so many blogs out there with such great inspiration and I'm always trying to participate but for whatever reason it doesn't always work out. Yesterday though, everything just clicked. I needed to make some cards for a snowman swap that I joined. I know exactly what image I wanted to use, Snowman Circle from Stamping Bella and when I saw Amy Rysavy's Friday Sketch #44, I knew it would be perfect for it!

DP is from MME. I used my pencils and OMS for the snowman. Here is a close up of the image:

I know snowmen aren't blue but I felt I need to color him something and he matches the paper perfectly! I think he's really cute! I'm happy to report I got all the cards made and some extras for myself!!

So what do you think? I would love to know, so feel free to leave me a comment! Thanks for looking!

Hi!
Your card is great! So happy that it all came together for you as I know just what you mean.
Beautiful paper and colouring the snowman blue is an excellent way to show how cold he is.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Michelle this snowman is sooooo cute. and the whole rest of the card WOW you did a wonderful job!!!

Is it cold up in Topeka??? Down here in Hutch we have a cold day and then a warm day then cold then warm it is very confusing as to wheather we need heavy coats or jackets and the other day my kids wanted to go out in shorts and t-shirts (I nixed that idea though)

Great job on this card Love it!!!
