Merry Little Christmas CASE


I'm so in love with snowmen and this one has a little birdie, too. That makes it extra fun.  I really like that the snowman is out of the box. He is a Sassy Cheryl digi-Blinkies Snowday Dreaming.

Stacy Morgan/Twinshappy on Splitcoaststampers asked me to do a sample for the challenge on SCS (SCSCCFEB13). This is for the February Fan Club Christmas challenge starting 2/1/13. You must be a fan club member to join this challenge. You can find it in the forum under monthly themes. I'm really excited about it and plan to make a few cards each month so I'll be ready for next Christmas.

The theme is:  May I *case* you? Case anyone on SCS and give a link to the creation you cased. Be sure to change at least 2 details of the original. I am doing a case of this adorable bag by jaydekay.

I embossed  the panel on top of the striped dp with a Cuttlebug snowflakes folder. The image is colored with Copics and cut out. I cut out my sentiment and tried to do it as jaydekay did hers by marking with a black marker.

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
WT412-Splitcoaststampers-Use a snowman on your card or project
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-Anything Goes

Recipe:
Stamps-Sassy Cheryls digi/Blinkies Snowday Dreaming, Stampabilities/Merry Little Christmas
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Hobby Lobby Greetings of the Season Christmas pad-2008, MME  6x6 paper pad/Merry (stripes

Benzi, this is so cute, and love how you framed the sentiment. I love snowmen but have not done one yet, I do not think I even own a snowman stamp :)..

You always make the CUTEST snowman cards, and this takes place among all the others! I love how that image spills out of the box, and the vivid coloring brings him to life! Great striped dsp too! So appropriate for the snow falling here in PA right now :) {it was 63 degrees 2 days ago}

Hi Brenda,
I was no longer on your blog and have missed all your beautiful works. I'm working on a project for "My Paper World" with some creative people, so I do not have a little time to blog.
The snowman card is you again succeeded quite fantastic. He looks so sweet through the window.
All your cards are always so beautifully worked clean.
I wish you a nice weekend.
Best wishes, Anja

This is the cutest snowman, Benzi! And your colors are so bright and hot! I tried to get to the forum but couldn't find it. Hopefully it wasn't up yet. I'll go try again!

Hi Benzi,
Ja, mit einem Augen zwinkern kommt der nächst Winter ganz bestimt lach...
Deine Schneemänner sind aber auch zu niedlich. Ich kann gut verstehen warum Du sie magst.
Wunderschön.
Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende, Carmen :)

How did I miss this snowman card? Oh I am so glad I ran across it when I was looking to see which card was the Funky card (which I love, love, love btw). The colors are sooo fun on this and he has such a great attitude. Special card! Hugz!
