Well, it's been a few days since I last did a challenge. Been busy with volunteer time at the schools and coaching baseball with my son at night. By then, I'm pooped. Today I have a sick son, so hopefully he'll get his rest he needs.
Todays Ways To Use It Challenge, we were to start out with using white c/s as our starting point with our cards. I already had the snowmen colored and cut out and saved for future use. Today, I decided to make a card with them. I started with ripped pieces of white paper and glued to half of the bottom of the card. The top part of the card I used my CB Snowflakes folder. I went back over where the creases were in the paper with Liquid Applique. I had stamped the snowman, cardinal, and the Christmas tree with Black Stazon. I colored all the images with my Primascolor watercolor pencils. I sponged the images with my embossing ink and added clear embossing powder. The Christmas tree is from the Michaels $1 stamp. The only cardinal I had was on a Christmas tree birdhouse stamp that I just stamped. The snowman is from a stamp company called Imaginations I had gotten from a garage sale about 7 years ago. I added the ribbon and a button snowflake to finish. I really enjoyed making this card. I know it's about 90 degrees here this week, but in some areas they still have snow. I decided to make the snow card anyways. Keeps my allergies away. Have a wonderful day.
What do you think?
