Favorite Snowman


I'm using my favorite snowman in all the world. I just LOVE him. I've made this card for the CCEE Stampers challenge---CCEE1242. This week's challenge is to do a winter or Christmas card  and be sure to use a snowman.

My stamp took up the complete card so the only thing I added after coloring with Copics was the sentiment and some glitter which isn't showing very well in my photo.

We hope you'll join us this week. What's cuter than a snowman?

Recipe:
Rubber Cottage-Let it Snow, Hot off the Press/Christmas Words (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories- Copics, Martha Stewart fine glitter, glue pen

I definitely understand why he's your favorite snowman, Benzi. I have dozens of snowmen images, either rubber or digi, and this one beats every single one of them! Of course, your coloring might have something to do with making him look so fabulous. :-D Magnificent CAS design.

Benz,

You make some the prettiest one layer cards out there in the stamping community, Brenda! This is a darling card! Snowmen are one of my favorite things for the wnter months. I have a hard time passing up a snowman with a cute face.

This working has cut into my crafting big time! I've made one card and didn't even get a picture if t before giving it away. For a part time job, I'm putting in 36 hours a week. Never realized how much work goes into opening up a new store.

Angie said...

Absolutely adorable!!! Your snowman looks like he has abandoned himself to JOY! Your coloring is gorgeous!!! If I have time to play I will add a snowman card to CCEE challenge! I have a favorite snowman that makes me smile every time I see him!

Olena said...

Absolutely stunning, Benzi! Oh, this is a great one-layer card. I just LOVE that awesome snowman and how big and beautiful this is. That blue scarf really pops off the snow!

Yes, the painting is done--good thing, too, because now we're getting rain and lots of it. Glad to have that outdoor stuff crossed off our list!

love this adorable snowman, what a fabulous card.

Sabrina said...

What a great stamp - it reminds me a lot of some of the dramatic scenes that Calvin stages with them in the cartoon. I love the simple colouring leaving most of the card white.

Lynne in NI said...

Yip, I can see why he's a fave, he sure looks like one happy dude!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, Benzi, I've seen a lot of snowman stamps, but this guy is whimsy with a capital W!! Love, love, love!

Glad you are feeling better!!
