Snow business

There's no business like snow business, unless it's a warm November day that's predicted to reach 70°! No, that is not normal for the mid-west at this time of year, but I went ahead with my snowman card!

I used Splitcoast sketch 252 along with stamps from Inkadinkado to decorate the outside and inside. Both the rectangle and scallop nesties were used to make the image panel. I used brown ink to sponge along the image panel. Snowman was colored with Copics & pencils. Icicle stickles were added to the snowflakes and the curve of the snow for some sparkle.

Design paper from the Memory Box Dewfrost collection was used along with PTI cardstock. I was very happy to read that the Memory Box paper is from a certified sustainable forest program. Do you recycle your paper scraps?? I have a bag for little pieces in my work area. Makes me feel a bit less wasteful.

My card was finished, but felt like it still needed a little something. I used my Bow-Easy to make the little bow in the corner. How happy it is to be able to make one with the "flat" side on the front! I could never get my bows to turn out pretty until now!!

Well, I had the card and post done this morning, but when I went to preview it...I found out it hadn't autosaved, and lost most of my work! It had to wait until I was back home this afternoon to re-write everything! And it did reach 70 degrees today.

Happy crafting!
