Snowmen in March

This week's Merry Monday #54 challenge is to use Snowmen on our cards. I know we're now just a day away from the first day of spring, but it snowed in PA last night, so I guess we can have snowmen in March after all!


I've had this pre-colored printed digi image in my stash for quite a while and pulled him out of the cobwebs and finally made him into a card. This adorable snowman image is by Laurie Furnell. I used some "corduroy" cranberry card stock along with some Fancy Pants Blissful Blizzard dsp and a MS border punch to put this together. The SU! sentiment panel was done with a bottlecap die by Quickutz, along with a circle punch and cranberry crisp ink. I wish I had a hundred of these images, as I'd use them for all my personal Christmas cards this year - I like this adorable snowman that much!

Stay warm and have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
