FROSTY IS COMING TO TOWN!

Good morning all!  It's a beautiful day here in Northern CA! I just love when it starts to cool down, but the sun is out, there is a little breeze going - makes me HAPPY!!!  And, since I have lots of stamping to do today, that makes it even better! But first, I wanted to share another fun Christmas card with you - isn't this cute??!!! I just love snowmen, I collect them in all shapes and sizes and at Christmas, they are all over my house, LOL!  This little guy makes me smile - he is from the Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set found in the Holiday Mini! All of the stamps in this set are adorable! I used the snowflake stamp and stamped all over the base of the card in Baha Breeze classic ink- love it! And, I had to use some more Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper, it is soooo yummy and the colors are fun! I added a smidge of  Real Red card stock that I punched using the Eyelet Border punch - I love how it makes the card pop! My main image was soooo much fun to do - Frosty is stamped in Stazon, then accented with some Real Red marker.  I used my two-way glue pen and dabbed all over and around him, then covered the ground underneath his feet.  I then added the chunky white essentials glitter and voila! SNOW!!! Doesn't it look real?? I love this stuff and one of my customer said that now she wants to order it in all colors and use it on her nails, LOL!  Too too fun!  I finished it off with the sentiment and some Whisper White grosgrain ribbon and the card was done!!! Soooo much fun to make this one, we had a great time and everyone was tickled with this!  See something you just have to have from this list of goodies (I know you want it ALL, heehee!) Check it out - you can go to my online store and order whatever you want!!!   And, if you have any questions, just email me and I am happy to answer them!  I will leave you the recipe and then I am off to run a few errands and then home for some serious stamping! I just love my job!!!!  I will be back tomorrow with some fun things to share - see you then!

OMGosh! This is so cute!! Thank you for sharing! I am one of your followers from Stampin' Connection. (I'm the one that started the Follow Me thread) I have a small favor to ask, please. I had to switch over my website (it used to be BellevueStampingClub) and lost all of my followers from SC. Would you be so kind as to go to my new site listed below and RE-follow me, please? You may have to copy and paste the link. Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!
