Do You See What I See? . . .


Isn't this a sweet snowman image? A good friend ( Hi Jason! :) loaned me this rubber stamp a couple months ago and I'm finally getting around to using it. She knew that I would enjoy coloring this image and I certainly did!

This is a good size image (3 x 4") and once I had it colored, I wasn't sure what to do for a layout. I tried a few different things, but felt they were distracting from the image itself. Anyway, I settled on stamping a few random snowflakes on the top half, some in navy and embossing a few in white. Behind the image is a strip of snowflake designer paper that I embossed in my Cuttlebug with the snowflake folder. As I'm typing this, I'm thinking that I should add a little glitter to the snow to give it some added sparkle.

Have you had any S*N*O*W where you live? We've had the most beautiful autumn weather in Nebraska, but it sounds like winter may be here SOON! Brrrrrr
Warm Smiles, Pam :)

Hi Pam - I love what you did with this card! I am going to have to CASE it sometime but I am sure that I won't do justice watercoloring it!

Have a great Thanksgiving!
