Snowman Fun with Friday Mashup

I just love this weeks Friday Mashup challenge, which is brought to us by Kim! She wants us to create a project featuring a snowman and use the colors Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray.

I love snowmen, even though here in my neck of the woods our snow is usually very dry, its not the wet snow that makes the perfect snowman or snowball. I compensate by having snowmen decorations up in the house all year long, and during this time of year my yard has many snowman decorations also. Snowmen just make me smile, I cant help it.

These colors arent normally ones I'd grab for a winter/Christmas card but after seeing them together I think they combine wonderfully for a great winter scene! I used one of my favorite snowmen stamps, from the  Jolliest Time of Year set. I love how whimsical this little guy is! The layout is from this weeks sketch challenge over at Splitcoast. I'm also going to enter this card over at my favorite Christmas challenge blog, Jingle Belles...they are on hiatus until Jan but they have it so you can still link up any Christmas cards you might still be working on!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :

-Make a project featuring "Snowmen".
-Or Make a project using the colors "Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze & Basic Grey".
-Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Snowman project with the colors Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze & Basic Grey".

*With all of our Challenges that have a Stampin' Up! Color Combo, you may substitute any colors with similar ones you have on hand.
