Jingle Belles

Good afternoon, and I'm back with a card you may have seen just a peek of earlier, if you saw my desk on WOYWW 192 fun earlier this morning.  There is a nifty winter challenge going on here featuring something icy, water-y, frozen, etc. So I thought I'd give it a go with this cute little Snowman (B06S - Freezer Space) that I purchased from The Stamp Doctor at a recent stamp convention. He made me smile when I saw his cute sign. The image was colored with copics, and then - just because I had been experimenting with some Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE), I used the UTEE on his hat & scarf. This gives a lovely shiny look to Mr. Snowman.

- diecut with S/Binders Marvelous Squares, largest die
- snowflakes diecut with Impression Obession (small flake) & Memory Box Crystal Snowflake (larger) on silver holograph paper
- Distress Inks Tumbled Glass & Stormy Sky sponged around diecut edge
- Recollections Starry Night paper pack - blue background, silver snowflake pattern

I'm off to link up my card, so I hope you'll check out the challenge and see some lovely cards at Jingle Belles Ho Ho H20. As always, thanks for dropping in for a visit. I appreciate your visits & comments so much as it means you took time from your busy day to think of me! Hugs

This card made me have a good giggle! The sentiment is hilarious and the whole card is just so sweet.
