{SSSC46} Sweet Sunday Snow Buddie

We're back from our FABULOUS Thanksgiving vacation to Nevada! The weather was PERFECT and it was SO FUN to spend time with FAMILY! I only wish I could have hit the *pause* button to make it last longer.

Today, I'm doing laundry and catching up on things around here, but I couldn't wait to stamp something! What better way to get back in the groove than the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge hosted by Karen Giron! Once I view all the cards created by her Sweet Sunday Stampers, I'm *so* inspired! If you haven't already done so, please check them out...you'll be so glad you did!

Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about our next Holiday! Yes, only 26 days 'til Christmas! :D

For this card, I've used my new Stampin' Up! hostess set ~ "Snow Buddies". I just *love* this set and was so happy to get it! :D What do you think of this color combination? I know, it's different for a holiday card. The cardstock is basic gray and sage shadow and I've used a piece of designer paper from "Nouveau Chic". I've used this same paper to paper-piece the snow buddie's hat and scarf and the sage shadow marker to color his buttons. It's hard to see in the photo, but I used the small snowflake stamp and frost white Shimmer Paint on the grey background. Also, I couldn't refrain from adding a bit of dazzling diamond glitter to make him sparkle! :)

All products used on this card are from Stampin' Up! If you ever need any Stampin' Up! products and don't have a demo in your area, I would *love* to help you! Please feel free to order via my blog 24/7. Another idea is to put together a Wish List for Christmas and let your family or friends know how to contact me. :D It would be my pleasure to help them do their shopping!
I'm happy you stopped by today and hope you'll come back again soon!
Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!

Gosh, Pam, this is adorable! I somehow missed the cuteness of this set! Or maybe I knew I'd never hit Level 2!!! Anyway, as Elise would say, we all have "snowman-itis!" CUTE!!!

Darling Pam! I love the colors, it is kind of the colors of winter and snow if you think of it.
