I created this for SNSS LOVE FEST challenge. I just love this snowman. He is one of my favorites with that smile turned upward. Seriously, one cannot look at him and frown!
This is 2 of 5 CCC for Feb! I am on a roll now!
The papers are totally different from what I planned. I cut the red and green paper that I planned to use but I cut it too short! Oh, I get so aggravated with myself when I do that. It's just a 6x6 and it was my last sheet of that pattern....so I turned to this pattern and gave myself over to a new middle portion. It turned out ok ...and like I said ...can't be too glum when viewing a smile like this!

Angela, I'm not sure what paper you originally wanted to use, but I can say that what you ended up using turned out terrific. I love the coordinating patterns and the soft shadows you created on the snowman. Awesome card.

I love all snowmen and you are right! You have to smile at this delightful character! I love your paper pieced scarf and light shading of him too! What a fun card!

Oh how adorable, Angela! You are right-this is my all time favorite snowman image! I love how you have colored him! I have always paper pieced his scarf and left him alone. You have inspired me to try a little color! TFS!
