A Scrappy Snowman!

      I'm finding myself changing how I'm making cards because of the painful back problems and I'm trying to use either pre-colored images or images I had colored already but put away for later use because it means less time spent sitting when I can eliminate the coloring time.  Fortunately, for the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place, I found half a dozen images in a folder which I had colored but not used last year.  Additionally, Beccy has pre-colored images in most of her sets and I can use those, too.

     Today's card uses one of  Beccy's images I had from last year and this is for the third of the "Wild Card" themes, which is 'Use Scraps.'  All the bits and pieces of dp on this card were left over from an Echo Park paper stack which I have been using for many of the Christmas cards I've done this month.  The exception to that are the two bits of glittered red paper.  Those are from a sheet I made previously using sticker paper and loose glitter.

     Doesn't this snowman look a bit like a gnome?  Does that make him a Gnowman?  lol  

     I adore snowmen and would use them year round if I could find a reason to do so.  Of all the Christmas/winter characters, my favorites are penguins and snowmen but I use more snowmen because I have more snowman images.  Well, I did have more before the thumb drive crash!  Sigh, now that I'm starting over, who knows?

Oh my goodness that snowman with the tall hat is ridiculously CUTE! Love the wonderful festive papers with the die cut sentiment too! Totally understand your situation my friend..there were times that I could not sit for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time and I gave up. I do hope that you're able to find out a solution. Sending hugs

Lovely card NanaConnie. It is hard to believe that you used scraps for this card. Lucky that you had a few coloured images from last year and as you say Beccy has a lot of pre-coloured images too. Hope that your back improves soon and that you feel more mobile.

Hermosa tu tarjeta con muñeco de nieve, felicitaciones. Los muñecos de nieve, también son mis preferidos.
Un abrazo.

Sorry to hear your back is still giving you so much trouble NC, do you think a standing desk might help?
Your Gnowman is awesome! You did a great job with the colouring, it looks very festive. Love the die cut sentiment and glittery paper.

A Gnomeman? I love that. It's a cute card. Once again, I love that striped paper. I'm going backwards in my commenting.

Sorry to hear that you're having problems with your back. Tempurpedic makes a great chair. Just like their bedding. Who knew they made a chair. I don't know if they still do. We actually ended up with 2 since my husband has a desk also. A little pricey but worth it. I hope you find a solution that will ease the back pain. It's terrible when you have that. Lili Of The Valley has some great colored images, also. [Bunny]
