Snowman Hugs

We are challenging you to create a winter card over at Sassy Cheryl's this week.  My design team contribution features "Snow Much Love".  It is one of Cheryl's newer images and you can get it here. I sparkled, doodled and inked  and this is what came out of all that fussing.  Isn't this a sweet image.  Nothing better than sending out  hugs and love to your friends and family at Christmas.

 I love snowmen and I had originally colored  6 snowmen digis for this week's card.  I was planning on using a card fold cut from a Sizzix die.  I made two bases, but by the time I added my digis and their embellishments, It wouldn't fold right.  I believe I should have used thicker cards stock for the base.   I have made the card before, but this time it just refused to fold clean and neatly.  I played with it so much that the cardstock just looked messy.

So, after a tiny little melt-down (no tears, just balled up paper tossed firmly into the trash can) I decided to make a card with one of the digi's.  Istill have 5 colored up, so I will  turn them into 5 more Christmas cards. I am still a few bunch short.  We are having a Christmas Crop at Scrapbooks By the Sea Saturday.  We are bringing things to work on our Christmas cards, eat Christmas cookies and listen to Christmas music.  Sounds like fun, come to the beach and join us.  It will be a fun way to finish up your card list.

Download one of Cheryl's winter digis, color it up and enter it in the challenge for this week.  The prize is two more digis of your choice.  AND.....if you don't have time to color, get one of her colored images and you really will be quick in making your Christmas cards.  Stumped for ideas check out what my design team sistahs have made to inspire you this week.  Those gals have real talent and you can "case" away for free! Now hurry up click here, there is only 36 more days until the Big Man comes!
