Hi ya'll! Pardon me while I dust the cobwebs off my blog. It has been a while since I have posted and I do apologize. The past two weeks have been a blur for me and unfortunately I have not had a lot of time to spend in my stamp studio. I have not fallen off the planet, I promise. This week at the Paper Players, my dear friend Ann has a theme challenge for us. What can I say? I do love the snowmen! Probably because we don't see them very often here in South Texas.
I have an affection for bright Christmas cards, so I went with my new favorite color combo of Primrose Petals and Gumball Green to get my card started. I have never inked up this chubby snowman image from the Snow Much Fun stamp set...I always seem to use the tall snowman in the set. So this cute chubbi-licious guy finally saw some ink (and some watercolor pencils). I colored his pearl buttons with a marker and added some Dazzling Details to the "ground" under him so he didn't look like he was floating in air. I listed all of the items I used to create the card at the end of my post.
Please stop by and play along with us this week at The Paper Players! The super-awesome Design Team worked their magic once again to create some "snow-tastic" cards for inspiration.

Before I go, I wanted to share a photo of the sweetest kitten EVAH, Miss Abby! We put the big tree up today and she stopped in her tracks when she came downstairs to see it for the first time. I have a feeling we are in for a wild ride with her in the next couple of weeks....Fa-la-la-la-la!
