In The Meadow......


In the meadow.....we won't be building a snowman!  However, I can make one on a card and I'm afraid that's the closest I'll get to it.  It's cold here (for our part of Texas) but of course no snow is involved at all.  For all of you that do have snow though - go build a snowman!

This cute little guy can be found at From the Heart for their progressive challenge.  If you played along last month you received this one for free this month.  I'll also enter this in their weekly challenge which is a sketch with a (color) twist.   See the photo below.

I colored him with Copics and then glittered up the "fur" on his hat.  The embossing in the background was done with a Sheena Douglas embossing folder.  A few sequins were added for fun along with the twine and patterned paper.



Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

That's such a cute and fun snowman and I really like the contrast of red and white! The diagonal cut is eye candy along with that great embossed background panel! Fun!

Brenda said...

Awwww, I am loving this little snowman!!! I've got the snow, but can't build a snowman. To fluffy! Maybe our next snow will be a wet one, just right for building a cute snowman. Great card my friend! Hugs, Brenda

It's been unbearably cold here...a bit of snow too but not enough to build a snowman yet.

Stacy aka Twinshappy on SCS said...

ACK!!! Totally CUTE!!! love the snowman, and awesome crisp and clean card.

JD/ Jill said...

Such a cute snowman card. Yes, we have snow...and it's still on the ground, but I don't think it's that deep to make a snowman...but, for me, it too COLD to even be out

Nancy in Iowa said...

Well yes! We do have snow! But it is too darn cold! I'll have to wait until it is ABOVE the minus numbers! Brrrr~ Love the sequins of course!
