Frosty Makes a Rare Appearance

Here's my take on the Sweet Stop sketch #SSS230. I flipped it to accommodate my image and used traditional red & green Christmas colors. The snowman is from an older retired SU! set called Frosty, and it was one of the first sets I ever bought. I colored him with Copics, and paired him with some dsp that I think is from JoAnne's. The seam binding is from SU! as well as the sentiment from their Teeny Tiny Wishes set. The tabs were done with a jewel tag punch, and then I used the hexagon punch to cut the tails, and added tiny red gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty. I'm happy to add yet another card to my Christmas stash!

I can't believe September is history already, but on this first day of October, I wanted to share Heidi's October calendar page with you. It's all about Halloween and I just love all the fun elements she included on this page! The skull & crossbones, ghosts, candy corn, and that cute little bat just make this one so much fun! Thanks Heidi, I hope you know how much I love this year full of calendar pages you've made for me!!

That's it for me, but thanks for stopping by! Make it a great day everyone!

That is a favorite stamp of mine also. You did such a great job with him and his surroundings. Heidi's calendar page is just a hoot. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. Thanks for sharing that with us Heidi fans.

I think that Frosty was my very first set from that SU party that started it all for me. I used it for my Christmas cards that year and I have to say I still love it. Your cards is just marvelous!
