Who Doesn't Love Snowmen??

When I saw that Allison's Suggestive Sunday theme was to use snowmen this week, I was very excited. I picked up Flaky Friends earlier this summer (finally!) and have a bunch of these images colored and ready to be transformed into Christmas cards. I just love them so much, I don't care that they are retired.

I used dp from the Christmas Stack (also from last year - thanks again, Cindy!) There are so many great papers in this stack, I love that they incorporate blue and not just red and green. I cut two patterns on the diagonal to make the background, then mounted the image on red and blue I had lying around. The red might be Bazzill, but I'm not sure about the blue... The hearts of the snowmen are layered with Ruby Red Liquid Pearls and I used puffy paint for the snow and earmuff and hat details on the snowmen. The vellum snowflake is attached with a crystal brad and the sentiment is a 3-d sticker, also from Cindy!

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do. It makes me smile to look at those 5 snowmen, even if I despise winter!

Have a good night and thanks for looking!

Nice card and I love the snowmen. Wonderful job with the coloring. If I stopped using my images because they were retired I wouldn't have any:(
