Big, Round Head with Crinkled Nose

 
 
I know, I know, I have overdosed on snowmen. But, I can't help myself. I just love them and, you know, it is winter. I'll fight myself and try to do something else soon. LOL
 
Hope you all had a fab weekend. We had downpours of rain. If it could have only been really, really cold, just think of the snow we could have had.  When the cold comes in, the moisture disappears around here. So, not much chance of the white stuff. Such is living in the deep south, I suppose.
 
My sweet snowman is from Sassy Cheryl's Digis. She does have the cutest ones and I have several more in the wings just waiting to be made. Ha  I made the card for the Featured Stamper, FS310, on Splitcoaststampers. Her name is Lynn aka allee's. She is such a sweet person and has a wonderful gallery of cards. I hesitate to show you which card I cased. A lot went wrong and it barely resembles hers. O.K., this is it. I had my card completely made and saw a boo boo,  tore it up and threw it in the garbage can. I thought I would use my snowflakes instead of the side panels she used. Gosh, everyone thought my snowflakes were black. Nope, they are dark blue, Night of Navy from SU.
 
My card also fits the new January Fan Club Christmas Challenge, SCSCCJAN13: Christmas Wedding/be inspired by borrowed, blue, old, and new or all. I have all but the borrowed on my card. I have a new digi, used blue Copics, and the punches are old.
You will have to be a member to join the fun.

Wonderful snowman card, Brenda! Love it! It is still raining cats and dogs here today! We even had thunder last night! Yuck!

Benzi, I never tire of your sweet snowman cards. This is so adorable! I'll happily part with some of our cold weather and send it right to you...it's minus 25 this morning with a minus 29 windchill. Sadly, in our part of the country that's fairly moderate in terms of cold...it could be much worse!

Oh, I see a new card already with another ADORABLE snowman. I can't seem to get away from snowflakes this year and yours are snowmen, so I guess they kind of go together, huh? I love the little snow accent on the bird cage and the slight sponging! Great job Benz!

Totally cute snowman card, Benzi! If you can't have snow in real life, then putting some on your card is the next best thing, right?

I love your fabulous snowman collection Brenda! Each one is cuter than the previous! These vivid colors look so pretty, and I wonder how long that snowman will wait for the bird to come out? :)

Too much fun, Benzi! Fabulous snowman and I love his nose. Very creative to color only the birdhouse and his nose. I think it actually makes it feel more like winter. :-D

Love this guy's crinkled carrot!
