Snowman Fun at Tuesday Throwdown

     I'm doing something I very rarely do but this week I'm combining my DT card for Tuesday Throwdown  (Snowman Fun - use a snowman) with my card for a GDT spot that I'll be doing this whole month at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge (pink, red, & black this week plus use a button.)  Our sponsor at Tuesday Throwdown is Robyn's Fetish and they supplied the digital images for the whole team to use.  I adore this new snowman with his warm winter hat and scarf.  If he doesn't watch out, he'll be so warm he'll melt.  :-D


     It isn't easy coloring a snowman with red and pink but I managed it since he had the scarf, hat, and gloves.  I even managed to turn the scarf from just stripes into a plaid.  More on that with a brief tutorial at a later date.  The "snowflakes" are done with one of my newest embossing folders and I 'painted' them with Fairy Dust glitter for a bit of sparkle.  I also added a bit of glitter to the snowflake button.  The image is die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create -- Colors, sights, sounds of winter
A Creative Romance -- Something new
Come and Get It -- Something new
Creative Knockouts -- All that glitters
Digitally Sweet -- Anything goes
Hanna & Friends -- Snowflakes
Polka Doodles -- Anything goes

     So, grab those pink and red markers plus a button, find a cute snowman stamp, and come play along at both Outlawz and Tuesday Throwdown.  Wonderful prizes could be yours if you're a winner.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

That snowman looks so jolly - looks like he might have eaten too much Christmas pud! Thank you for joining us at Digitally Sweet.

Oh, your snowman is just too cute. And, love your sparkly snowflake panel.
It is five degrees at my house right now so I know he wouldn't melt here. Send him on. :-)

I love the red and pink on the snowman! Your embossing is such a great added touch as well- love the shimmer! We got lots of snow, but it is too soft-not sticky- for snowmen.....
