Merry Monday More Snow Fun

Wow, can you believe it's week 30 of the not so new year?  And I have a snowball throwing snowman this week for the Merry Monday challenge.  Watch out!


Here's Lesley's wonderful sketch.  I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I flipped the sketch again to make this guy and the sentiment work.


I randomly stamped some snowflakes with Whisper White craft ink on Crumb Cake.  The snowman is stamped with Jet Black StazOn and colored with markers.  Then I added some Dazzling Details around the edges, on the snowball and the ground under the snowman.

Have you seen the More Merry messages set yet?  It's fantastic and there are four sets of sentiments.  Not only the outside sentiments but some forthe inside of the card too.  This one fits in the largest of the Bitty Banners Framelit die.  I adhered it in the middle and flipped up the ends just a bit.

Check out the rest of the Design Team cards.  They're fantastic!

So cute, Bonnie! I'm trying to dream of frostier days (and with it, hopefully, cleaner air to breathe). Hope we get snow this winter!
