- After I hopped over to the Freshly Made Sketches and saw their new Challenge #15 created by Cindy Hall (please check out her take on the sketch.. it is absolutely adorable.) I knew I had to use my 'free hour of the day (while my youngest had her nap)' to create this card. Cindy's layout was so inviting and I just had to play.
- The Hand Stamped Sentiments ladies also had a Theme Challenge #97 - An old fashioned Christmas, that I wanted to work with. I don't own a whole lot of Vintage / old Fashion stamps.. but this cute little critter sure worked for this challenge. It reminds me of the good old Christmas days in Holland when I was a child. We didn't get a whole lot of snow in our winters there, but when we did, building a snowman (sneeuw pop) was the fun thing to do!
- And what do you know.. I just peeked at the Friday Mashup #36 Challenge site and their Challenge is to use a 'snowmen' in our creations. Well.. how fun is that? I loved seeing all the cards that were on their site created with those many adorable snowmen.
So what can I say.. An old fashion snowmen card in the perfect layout, it is :)
there are lots of retired Stampin Up products used in this card. The Holiday hedgehogs from Stampin Up, which were released in 2001, will never grow old on me, that's for sure. It was so fun to color these 2 cuties. My 2 Stampin Up star punches were just what I needed to ad that extra dimension to my card.
Well.. My hour is up. Life is going to start soon again here in this household. Thansk everyone for all your kind comments on my previous posts. I always love to hear from you and I will for sure take a peek at your blog if you leave me a message. It's the inspiration we all love while hopping through blog land, right!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
Inky hugs, Pauline
