Warm Hearted Snowman

     This is my second post of the day but I'm trying to get Mother Nature to change her ways so ...

     This adorable snowman is a Penny Black stamp which I colored last weekend.  Since California is having an unseasonable heat wave (just in time for the start of the World Series in Los Angeles), I decided that it was time for more Christmas cards with snow and cold weather reflected on them.  Mother Nature being what she is, maybe she'll decide to cool things off if she sees us getting back to nature with beautiful snow all around.  :-D


     I used cool greens and icy blues and colored the image with my ProMarkers.  I die cut the image and a frame for it using dies from Spellbinders.  I found a scrap of winter blue lace, cut it in two, and added it to the card front before layering on the image.

     I made pale pink poinsettias by trimming the flowers off of a flower stem die by Memory Makers and stacking them together.  Then I added teeny, tiny pearls to the center of the flowers.  To offset those itsy bitsy pearls, I added some large ones to the top and bottom of the frame and along the side, next to the sentiment.

     Challenges:
ABC Christmas
Color Inspiration Monday
Crafty Hazelnut's
Outlawz Festive Friday
Penny Black and More

     I really hope this cools down the weather.  103F in Los Angeles is too hot for any time of year, but is certainly abnormal for late October!
