Snowman manager

Sorry it has been so long, I had meant to post before I left for a very quick trip to Michigan but I was so busy I didn't have time.  My oldest brother called of us and asked if we would like to come to his house this year for a little get together and I had to really think about it because it is a 8-9 hour drive, my husband had to work all weekend  and the older I get the harder it is for me to drive that long by myself, but when I looked and the weather was going to be nice I decided to go for it.  Can I just say when I got home last night I didn't do much, but cuddle on the sofa with my furbabies, watch shows on our DVR and sleep on and off.

When I saw this stamp at a flea market this past summer I fell in love with it, I collect snowmen and so this was too hard to pass up, my sister even bought me a nativity with snowmen, it is too cute.  These were the first two I had finished but I made 9 of these cards for all our siblings.  All the same just changed up the paper for the background.



Uptown Rubber stamps-- tidings of great joy, colored w/markers
Fancy pants designs -- Saint Nick paper
My minds eye - O Christmas tree paper
Spellbinders -- Resplendent rectangles and Labels 8 dies
Stickles -- Champagne for the snow and on the star
Button w/ raffia

Well as you can imagine being gone for 3 days this time of year I have alot of catching up to do, so I will leave you for now.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Connie

What a sweet card Connie. Love the precious image. Great coloring. The sponging looks nice on the edge of the decorative rectangle.

This is just one of the cutest stamps ever! Who would have thought of a snowman nativity? I've never seen one before. The cards you made are just darling! Nine of them? Very ambitious! Glad you made it home safe and sound and didn't run into any bad driving conditions. I know a trip like that can be very tiring! Heck, just a day at work wears me completely out!
