September's Snowman

I had time last weekend to do a little stamping. Miriam, my second daughter who is 12, asked if she could pick out something for me since Abi always gets too! I told her I needed to do some Christmas cards so she picked out Snow Much Fun and Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue. Then I went to my binder that I keep all my sketch challenges and color challenges in to pick out a sketch. This is Stampin' Addicts sketch challenge number 66. I sat down with the stamps, ink and sketch and came up with this little cutie. Miriam was amazed that I was able to create this so quickly! I decided to use it as my cards for the Christmas card challenge and my September addition. Here's a group shot of all 16.


And now the close up.

Stamps: Snow Much Fun
Ink: Stazon Black, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue. Crumb Cake, Peach Parfait
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Snowflake punch, Modern Label punch, silver brads,
1/16" handheld punch, aquapainter, sponge, dimensionals

I now have 144 Christmas cards made and ready to be mailed the first week of December! This coming from the person who usually gets the Christmas cards out a day or two before Christmas! I think I will have more cards than I need but that's OK too.

Oh! I almost forgot to tell you that we will be making this card at my Christmas Card class on Tuesday! Reserve your spot now!

Happy Stampin!

I love this card!!! I had just about decided to get Polar Pals instead of this one, but now you've made me change my mind again. Great use of the sketch too.
