Merry Monday Frosty Friends

It's a snowman party for Merry Monday this week.

When I saw this stamp in the Holiday Mini catalog, I knew I had to have it.  These little guys looked like they were having so much fun getting ready for the holidays.

And Lesley's sketch worked perfectly when I tipped it a bit.  Don't ya think?

It's not quite an oval.  I cut the design piece with the largest die from the Apothecary Accents Framelit then whacked off the ends.

I hope you'll join  us at Merry Monday this week.  And check out the beautiful creations from the rest of the design team.

I've been missing sharing with you nearly every day.  It's been pretty busy around here.  It's good to be busy, but I've had to do without some pleasures to keep afloat.  Hopefully I will be back in the swing later in the week.  I've really missed the challenges and blog visiting.

Thanks Darnell for letting me know that my Simply Simple card got honorable mention at Addicted to Stamps.  What a nice surprise! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

This is such a fun card! I love the colors and embossing. I think the blue between the snowmen really make them POP.

I've missed you, Bonnie. I hope you get more balance (i.e., more crafting time) in your life soon.

I love me a snowman party and your group looks like a riot to me! It's an adorable whimsical card, beautifully executed!!

Wendy said...

Super adorable and oh so festive, Bonnie! I loved these snowmen too when I seen them in the mini but so far I have not bought them. Love how you flipped the sketch and the pretty mix of papers! Love this one! :)

Love those partying snowmen Bonnie! Very clever of you to use the apothecary framelit for your oval shape - I'm going to have to remember this one!

Hi Bonnie

I'm eyeing up this stamp too. Love the way you've turned the sketch. The banners look fab. x
