My recent 10 day absence was a result of no stamping energy. I didn't have any good ideas or even the desire to stamp. So, I thought maybe I'd shift my thinking and get a start on my Christmas cards! I had a technique I wanted to try but every other aspect of the card was a blank for me. Then, I saw Mary Jo's sketch and thought, "I can make this work!"
Here's her sketch:
And here's my card:
I wanted to use my new Chalk marker to color my snowman. It's not an intense white, so after I colored it, I added highlights with my gel pen. I had exactly 7 felt snowflakes left, so I made 7 cards. The red banners were scraps from my file. Most of them aren't full strips! Since they are hiding behind my snowman (except the strip to the right) I was able to piece them all together! I love using scraps!
We are bracing for another two snow storms this weekend. One tonight that will only bring an inch or so. Tomorrow night maybe up to another 4". I can't believe this winter! When will I see the bare ground again? I'm suppose to start my seeds indoors this weekend! Sure doesn't feel like it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
