*More Snowmen*

I had a great time with the CalGals last night.  We did a lot of laughing, a lot of nibbling and even a little crafting!  I think everyone completed at least one card or scrapbook page.  I managed to pull out two cards, only one of them with wintry images.  Both with the same colour combination simply because those were the colours on my desk.

I love having the crafty girls over!

No big plans for today... I have a tanning appointment at 1:30 which I will go to after I take Matthew to his drum practice at 1.  I'll run back and pick him up after my appointment.  I also want to go to Michaels as I have a 50% off coupon and Merlie showed me a great new Martha Stewart punch set last night that I need to have!

And tonight we are off to our friends' annual Christmas party which is always a lot of fun with too much to eat and lots of laughs... not to mention the only eggnog I'll drink (it's home made!).  I have no idea how many days it takes her to create all of the yummy stuff she puts out!  Natalie, I appreciate your efforts but behind that, I think you're nuts LOL!

Another card of snowmen to share with you.....
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Kraft, Basic Black

*Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye
*Images:  Great Impressions
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Spica; white gel pen
*Embellishments:  Stickles


I was really happy with how the image turned out on the Kraft cardstock...  I thought that highlighting the edges of the snomen and their accessories would make it stand out a little more.

I really like this card Nancy. I wouldn't have thought of doing snowmen on Kraft - but using the white on them makes them really pop. Fabby!

I love how these snowmen look! The highlighting around them just makes them pop :) Thanks for sharing - I may have to steal that idea!
