Snow Day for Merry Monday



Debbie is our hostess this week.

Let's see what she chose...


I haven't made a one layer card in a long time!

My snowman looks like he's about to roll down the hill.

That could be fun!

My card is Crumb Cake and the snowman is from a 
Stampin' Up! retired set called Snow Day.
He's stamped in Whisper White craft ink.

I tore a piece of paper to use as a mask and sponged
Whisper White ink under him with a sponge dauber.

Snowflakes were stamped and blowing snow added with the dauber.

I thought it needed something else, so I stamped a tree off the side.
(I had to stamp the bottom under the bottom of the tree to get more height.)

Now it's your turn.

Get a head start on those Christmas cards so you don't have to panic later.

Check out the fantastic Design Team cards.

They are sure to inspire you!

See you at Merry Monday.

Rudolph Days start today
and the challenge is open until the end of the month.
I'm going to share this over there too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

One layer! Do you see me getting twitchy now?! I'll have to check out the DT's inspiration as well. I'm always confused with one layer. If you add a die cut is that still one layer? A bling? A bow? Oh my. But... I do know that your card is awesome! I love your snowy scene on kraft. Cute, cute, cute!

Love this one layer cutie! The snowman looks great and I do love that tree off to the side too. With all the snow in your area and the northeast, this is a hit!

Your card is delightful.. My favorite part is how you stamped the tree image off the paper. I must try that technique.

Well they did go back to school today Bonnie -- I am finishing up a card - but unfortunately it is not a one layer --
Love the way you have painted (stamped) your snow man. It is indeed a happy snow card.

Your snowman is so adorable Bonnie! Love the kraft background with all that snow. :) I'm not good at one layer, but I hope to play along. I got my stamp order the other day with my hot beverage stencil that I wanted to use for last week --- too late for the challenge. :( xx

I love everything about this card Bonnie. The snowman is just adorable and I love the way that both he, and the snowflakes stand out so beautifully against the background. The addition of the green tree gives a lovely flash of colour and finishes the card off perfectly. The stamping is exquisite and I've just become your latest follower so that I don't miss any of your future creations :) x
