If a snowman wears pink……


…… is it a snowgirl or just confused???? I am thinking the first but hey, boys look great in pink too!
As promised I am back with my 2nd project for today. This time it is the turn of Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week our theme is to use punches or dies. The DT are all using the exclusive dies from Simon Says Stamp and boy oh boy are they fabulous!!!!!
I have used the beautiful Allegro corner die and I think you have to agree it is LUSH. I always seem to want to add something to my corners and this is just so pretty and is perfect for these spaces, It is also a great alternative to flowers, especially if you want to keep your postage costs down with all those christmas cards you need to send.

03-10.12

It is such a long time since I used this amazing stamp by Penny Black – I think it is perfect and is a firm favourite of mine.

03-10.12a

Lots of shine and sparkle added here using Stickles on the snow and also Glossy Accents over the buttons/nose.

03-10.12b

Now you know how much I love added pearls to my cards. I think we have all been in a position where we didn’t have enough of a certain colour to add to our projects. Well, that is a thing of the past. At last I have discovered liquid pearls!! Where have I been all this time. It is soooo easy to use – I am going to buy loads of this in different colours, what a brilliant product!

Pens that I used:

03-10.12c     03-10.12d

Any snowman can wear pink and look great, and your card proves it! I love how you embellish to keep postage costs down, and you've done it beautifully with this card! The corners, the sparkle, the snowflake and scalloped borders - it all works so beautifully together on your card, and that definitely is one cute snowman too! I love that little bird on his cap :)

That card is 'layers of creativity'. In the 1950's after the first snowfall we made snowmen. There was plenty of dry twigs and old leaves in our creation. The brown on your card denotes the arrival of the winter snow cocvering all the debris of fall. I wondered how you had so many pink pearls, glad to hear of that product. The corner dies signified the 4 seasons to me. That card tells quite a tale. Blessings Carole

Carole Robb Bisson said...

Good luck with the crochet. I am crocheting those little tiny doilies for my cards. Blessings Carole
