Snowman Thank You ~

Hello!  Hope you all are doing great!  The whole Scritchfield clan has been down with a nasty cold this week.  Ugh...I don't like germs!  Anyway, I finally felt good enough today to play.  Yay!  Course I spent half of my crafty time organizing and cleaning up, but that's all part of the process.  lol
This is a cute little snowman you've seen from me before.  He's from the Cute Companions Christmas Delight set.  I inked him up in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copics {currently 20% off at Paper Garden Projects!}.  His coal pieces are colored with a black glaze pen - gives such a fun shine and just a touch of dimension.  I cut him out with the largest of the classic small rectangle nestabilities and sponged a little blue chalk around the edges while he was still in the die. 
The sketch is from the Basic Grey challenge blog.  All of the papers are from the new Christmas paper, Jovial.  I punched some snowflakes from the snowflake paper and white paper and then layered them with a bit of dimensional foam tape.  The top one has a fun red button in the center.  The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  I made this into a 'Thank You' card to get a head start on those.  Looks like I might actually get my Xmas thank you's out before Valentine's Day this year!!  lol  Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you have a healthy and fun weekend :o) lyss

Hi Alyssa. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. I love meeting people from Durango. It is such a small town and there is something so special about it. I have lived her since 1999, but also lived here from 1982-1986 and went to Fort Lewis College. I figure you were probably a kid here at that time. Small world.

That snowman is so sweet, and I just love that paper and layout! I finally got some Jovial dp but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Seeing your card makes me want to break it open asap! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I'm glad you're feeling better:)
