Snowman Joy for CAS Christmas

Hello friends.

It's time for another Challenge at CAS Christmas.

Susan is hosting our challenge this month.

I love this snowman that seems to be dancing in the snow!


I die cut him from glimmer paper for lots of sparkle.

A piece of Inka Gold Smoosh seemed to make a good contrast.
So I splattered some acrylic paint on it for snow.
(Not pretty splatters. It looks like it's melting on the way down.  Southern snow!)

I added a fiber scarf from some fluffy yarn to keep him warm in the snow.

There are so many wonderful snowman images out there and I know
we'll have a wonderful gallery again this month.

Our talented Design Team is joined by Barb as Guest Designer.
She was our March Top Pick.  Can't wait for you to see their awesome designs!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Sweet! LOVE this die-cut snowman ... he does look like he's doing a happy dance. He's just so happy it's snowing! :) So pretty cut from glimmer paper. And I love the contrast with the deep colours of your gorgeous background. The scarf adds some more fun and dimension. Great design Bonnie! xx

That die cut snowman is the cutest thing, Bonnie! He works perfectly with your stitched hills! I always love the way you frame your work too! Great Christmas card.

Love your die cut sparkly snowman and that gorgeous sky behind. Your smooshed Inka gold background is stunning with all that depth of colour

This snowman always cracks me up - face up to the snowfall - yours is so nicely sparkled and I love his little scarf!

Leslie Miller said...

A very happy card! Love his fiber scarf. I giggled at your comment about the southern snow. It looks great to me!

Gorgeous sky background for your glittery snowman. Love your snowman's scarf too. TFS your Wintery beauty, Bonnie. Hugs...

Susan said...

"Snowman Joy" is the perfect title for your post - that snowman really does look filled with joy. Love the beautiful backgroundw with the snowflake splatters (Vancouver snow is often like that too). And great addition of the fibers for the scarf.

WOW! I remember from childhood how the snow sparkles in the sun. Your snowman looks just like a childhood memory. He looks so beautiful on the intense background of Inka Gold smooshing. What a great card.
Hugs,

Such a bright happy little guy. Want to be right next to him. That background is so rich and your fiber scarf is the right touch, loving this little detail. Loving it all Bonnie, such a cheerful card. xx

Bobby said...

I love that snowman who looks like he's relishing the falling snow. He's so cute out of glitter paper, Bonnie.

This is truly a happy snowman, Bonnie! He makes me feel like throwing my arms in the air and shouting "Yay!" :-)
I love the gorgous Inka Gold smooshed background. It's so pretty and makes a great contrast with the glittery snowman and the snowy hills. I also love the yarn scarf you added. The totally different texture (fiber), the dimention, and the color (hot pink) add so much interest! Hideko xx

Sandy said...

This has to be one of my all time favorites! Love the colors and the yarn!

What a happy shimmery snowman you have here Bonnie. Love the big snowflakes and gorgeous background. Nice finish with the scarf. It's sure to keep him warm. I am afraid a snowman here would melt in minutes.

Nance said...

I love that background you created, Bonnie. Got to love our southern snow --- it hits but doesn't stick! lol The snowman really glistens in front of it and love his fiber scarf! I like him "praising" that it's snowing. We may be wishing it would here soon once the humidity hits! Happy weekend, my friend! Nance xx
