My BIL in Wisconsin was out with his snow blower today, poor fella. He has tickets for the Packer/Giants game and they are expecting COLD COLD COLD weather in the Frozen Rotunda. But he will still be at the game. A Packer Fan is a Packer Fan. They don't miss a game for a little threat of frostbite!! Sassy Cheryl and I are on opposite sides of this game, she is a Giants fan. Now I love Cheryl, but I still want to beat her this weekend for sure. Go PACK!
Well speaking of snow....... Here's a Snowman Valentine for the Let It Snow Challenge going on over at Sassy Cheryl's. Let me introduce you to Bashful Buddy. Isn't he cute? Buddy is so shy but the stars are shinning on him today and he finally got the courage up to declare his love for his valentine. He is all dressed up in his Carolina Gamecocks colors, so I assume his sweetie will be a Gamecocks Fan. I sure hope she loves him back. I would hate it if he was scorned and got so embarrassed he melted clean away.
I had fun making this card. I have lots of textures going on, so you can tell I was in the playing mood when I made it. The snowflakes are punched with a snowflake punch, glittered with a gem in the middle. The gray paper is DCWV, the striped is Kaiser Craft and the polka dot is My Minds Eye. The heart is punched with a CM punch and the scalloped heart is a MS punch. The sentiment is from Artful Leagacy and the hearts are a clear stamp from the dollar bin at AC Moore. My Stickles glitter is Frosted Lace. The fur on Buddy's Coat was made with Polar White Flower Soft. The white nubby mesh is a piece I picked up a couple of years ago at a scrapbook store in the Tennessee Mountains. I had to have it, loved it instantly and never found a use for it when I got home. Ha Ha. Bet you have some of those things in your stash too. I am so happy I finally used it.
Well I am off to bed now. I am exhausted. I just got back from Durham, North Carolina where we went to watch Duke beat Virginia (sorry again, Cheryl) in basketball. My daughter is a die hard Duke Basketball fan and Coach K is her hero. They had tickets to the game but , my poor son-in-law came down with a virus and couldn't make the trip. So he kindly gave me his ticket. So sorry Bob that you were so sick, but I really enjoyed myself.
Sorry for the long post, too much caffeine I guess. In a snowy mood? Why not make a project and share it with us over at the Sassy Cheryl Blog.
I just realized I was supposed to cut Buddy out in a circular shape. It doesn't meet the challenge requirements precisely. Can we count his round little head for the circle. So sorry, Sassettes. If you need to disqualify me, I certainly understand.
