Keeping Cool with Snow Much Fun

Summer has arrived with all the heat and humidity.  So I pulled out a snowman to play with.

This was the picture on my January page of one of my calendars.  The more I look at it the more it looks like a giant snowman hanging in the air.  I should have cut his feet out to sit on the top flag.  LOL, I'll send this to someone with a good sense of humor!

I used the sketch from Merry Monday.  There's still time to play over there.

Rudolph days lasts until the end of the month.  Sarn has a delightful card up there and some fun Christmas stamps for a lucky winner.

Festive Friday wants to see a tree on our card.

Winter Wonderland has an interesting challenge

3 snowflakes
2 papers
1 image

3 snowflakes at the top of the DSP (lots in the snowman), 2 decorative papers.  It might be a stretch for the one image, but I'm hoping it's close enough.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Snow Much Fun (retired), Lovely as a Tree, More Merry Messages
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, Always Artichoke, Handsome Hunter (retired), SU Markers (Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black)
Other:  Dazzling Details

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you're having a great weekend!

Everytime you use this stamp set Bonnie, I wish I had've got it when it was still in the cattie! You've created such a fabulous snowy scene!

Oh my goodness, you know I love this snowman. He really looks grounded to me and not hanging in the air. What a cutie!!!!

He does look big, but I like it! Such a cute holiday card, Bonnie, & works for so many challenges--I have trouble with that.

Adorable snowie, and love the way you presented him. I thought he looked as though he was standing in snow...didn't look 'hanging' to me! And he's darned cute too! Great card, and TFS
