Hi There;
Hope you are enjoying some beautiful spring time weather.  Someone should be, it is spring isn't it.  I have a feeling we are going to go straight from winter weather to summer weather over night, it's happened before.  Thankfully the flowers don't care about the weather and will bloom in spite of it.  My forsythia is covered in buds, can't wait for that riot of yellow.

This sweet snowman stamp is another no name thrift shop find. I love those tiny birds. I stamped him in Stazon then masked him and used my duster and DI to create the clouds. I then colored him with color pencils, his scarf and hat were paper pieced. The stamp has buttons on it but I covered them with a little red button from my stash and those adorable little button brads found at Big Lots along with the little snow flake at the bottom. The large snow flake was cut from mirror card with a Sizzlet die.  All mounted on a snowflake embossed card.

I am entering this in Sandra's 3rd Rudolph Day Challenge.  What's that?  Sandar has challenged us to make at least one Christmas card and or a tag ever 25th of the month.  Why not join in, you'll be glad you did come Dec. and you may even win a little something too. 

Have an Amazing Day!
