Sweet n Sassy Snowman at Tuesday Throwdown

     Today we start a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and our sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, where you'll find some of the most adorable rubber stamps and digis.  They generously supplied images to the DT, although I used one which was already in my collection.  It's called Smiley Snowman.


     The snowman is colored using ProMarkers and Pearl Pen.   He's cut out and popped up with dimensional dots.

     The snowflakes were cut with dies by Spellbinders.  They were cut from scraps of dark blue paper which was on the desk from another project.  (Yes, it's time to clean off the desk again!  <--- my daughter's opinion, not mine.  There's nearly 10 square inches of free space left so, personally, I think it's fine.)

     The swirl of pearls was added on top of the largest snowflake because they made it look wintry and windy.  However calm or wild the weather, Smiley Snowman seems to like it just fine.  :-D

     Challenges:
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long
C.R.A.F.T.
Creative Corner
Frosted Designs Friday
Inkspirational
Moving Along with the Times
Outlawz PAM
Stempelsonnen
Treasured Times
Winter Wonderland

     Come and play with us this week at Tuesday Throwdown.  You could win some fun images from Sweet 'n Sassy.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Hi NC

Strep Throat is horrible and I am so sorry you had to battle it. Glad to hear you are starting to feel better. As a kid I battled strep throat every April. Fortunately I sort of out grew it as an adult - I definitely don't get it as many times as I use to. I love your card. Your snowflakes are adorable The snowman is just way to CUTE!!! I love a snowman and I don't care if he's skinny or fat - they just warm my heart. I love how you used the Pearl Pen - brilliant. And as always, thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello. It always means so much to me. Have a wonderful day my precious friend.

Hugs always
Laine

I think we may work on identical desk tops, NC! I had about 10 square inches myself yesterday while working. Ah well...creative minds are not always tidy.
Your snowman sure is a cozy treasure. Love those dark blue flakes and the pearl pen you added to your image. Such a happy holiday card! love it.
