Dancing Snowman

     Well, this was supposed to go live at 6:00 this morning but something happened with the pre-scheduling.  No matter, here it is now.

     This morning, I'm sharing with you a delightful, new-to-me, Dancing Snowman (From the Heart Stamps) and now I have a second Christmas card in the stash.  I've discovered I'm going to have to make 2 to 3 per week for the rest of the year in order to have enough for my Christmas needs.


I started with the sketch found at From the Heart Stamps.

Sketch156

     The snowman is colored with ProMarkers with spattered watercolors coloring the sky, then it's die cut with a stitched circle die from Die-namics.  I also cut the frame with a larger die from that same set.  I repeated that process with the sentiment.  I found that lovely pale blue, polka dot paper in my stash (how old?  who knows!) which worked for a snowflake background, then added strips of CS and the bow.  Fast, clean, simple and into the Christmas stash for one of the many guys in my family.  :-D
