Snowflakes and Snow Woman
This is my last post as one of July's Sweet 'n Sassy Guest Designers. I have had a great time using these wonderful sets and just had to finish off with another snow woman!! I made a very conscious effort to not use blues on this card and went heavy on the pinks instead LOL! Pal Paper Arts is having a monochromatic challenge and that is where I got the idea. Not sure if the silver disqualifies me from the challenge, but regardless, this was a fun card to make.
I glittered her hat and the "snow" and then added some punched snowflakes with bling in the middle around the image, despite the fact I used the snowflake embossing folder in the background. They gave a nice little extra "umph" to the card and balanced it off nicely. The mini bead silver cording was a clearance bin snag at Michael's last year. It was a stinker to tie a bow with because the bow wouldn't stay tied, so I had to put a big old blob of glue in the middle to "freeze" the bow. Thank goodness for clear drying glue LOL!
Have to do some overflow work for hubby's office over the next few weeks and with the kids' swimming lessons over (yeah, no more smelling of chlorine for a while), that means planning and doing activities to keep them busy as they won't be wiped out from swimming. That usually means a wiped out mommy who needs down time, so if it is a bit quiet around here for a few weeks, you'll know why. I'm hoping to post twice a week, any more is to be determined by my energy level or my addiction to the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon!! Makes for a very hard decision at times.....to stamp.....or to read....that is the question LOL!
Thanks for dropping in today and keeping me company (((hugs))). Your comments make my day :D
