Merry Blue Snowman

I've got my Merry Monday card done for this week.

Here's the sketch Leslie gave us.

Want to take a look at what I did?

I used a digital stamp by Torico (Birdie Brown).  It was a freebie a year or so ago.  I think he's one of the cutest snowmen I've ever seen.  I colored him with Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango markers and punched him out with a 1 3/4" circle punch. I used the Indigo marker to color around the edge since I was mounting it on another white piece.

The paper is some that I won as blog candy on the Merry Monday site a while back.  I love that it has a knitted appearance like a nice warm scarf.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Snowman (Birdie Brown), Easy Events 
Ink:  SU Markers (Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango), Whisper White
Paper:  Island Indigo, Whisper White, DP
Other:  White EP, Big Shot, Snow Flurries EF, 1 3/4" Circle, Large Scallop Circle, 2 1/2" Circle and Corner Rounder punches

I really like this sketch and found it fun and easy to work with.  Why not give it a try yourself.  I really love that I'm getting at least one Christmas card done each week.  Some weeks I get two done.  And they're all different.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  I really appreciate your visits and look forward to your comments.
