Snowman fun for Jingle Belles

Have you ever gotten an idea in your head for a card, go to start putting it together and it's coming together nice and quick and then boom, distraction hits? That's what happened to me with this card. As soon as I saw the sketch at Jingle Belles I knew exactly what I wanted to do, sat down this past Thurs to create and then before I knew it Facebook, my kids, dinner, work etc all distracted me. So here it is now on Sunday and I FINALLY got my card done and photographed!

We got 6" of new snow last week, which was awesome, we desperately need it here in southcentral Alaska and so I was in a snowman mood. I grabbed this tall snowman from the Snow Much Fun set, he is perfect for the long panel in the sketch. The paper I used is some older SU DSP called Ski Slope. It was in the 2008-2009 Christmas mini (when I say I hoard Christmas paper I'm not kidding!). I just love this paper and this card used up my last big pieces of it, *tears*.

The DSP is mounted on Chocolate Chip card stock and I lightly sponged the image panel with Chocolate Chip. I colored the snowman with colors from the paper...Real Red, Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, plus some Tangerine Tango for his nose and Basic Black for the hat and boots.

There are still  few days to play along with their sketch, hop over to the Jingle Belles blog and check it out!

  1. What a great take on the challenge! Love the colors and the image... everything really!

  2. Sketch perfection ... love that skinny snow dude ... so very glad you went sketchy with us at jingle belles.

  3. i have to tell you, confidentially (LOL) that in my house the phrase "5-minute card" has taken on irony of MASSIVE proportions, since it is those ideas of mine that wind up taking three days and incalcuable card-stress, lol!!! so not only do i think you're FAST>>> you've really rocked stephanie's JINGLE BELLES sketch in a big way! this is GORGEOUS!!!!! ♥♥♥
