Two snowmen

Hello! This is m DT card using an "Oldie but goodie" image over at Catch the Bug.

This a really simple and quick card. I started out coloring a white paper blue, then I heat embossed with white EP using a Tim Holtz stamp. I mounted the image, colored with Promarkers, with foam onto the background. Frantage used as snow. White seambinding ribbon, a stamped and die cut tag and some glitter gems and that was it.

I'm sorry I haven't been around visiting blogs much lately, I actually haven't had much computer time/time home at all. I miss visiting and will catch up from the middle of next week as I'm heading for a holiday in Prague first.

This card is also for:
The Male Room - #50 Christmas/Winter Wishes/Dec Celebrations
Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute + A Day in the Snow
Use Your Stuff - Let It Snow

MaryH said...

Love the background treatment - it looks like a warm fuzzy sweater (or jumper? In the USA we say sweater!) It's a perfect background for this delightful Snow pair. The coloring on the Snowies is wonderful, and the falling snow adds such an icy feel. No apologies for being MIA, it happens to all of us. Just visit when you can, & I'll try to do the same! Best wishes for a wonderful 2017. TFS & Hugs

Thank you for your lovely comment on my Merry Christmas post Pia. I hope the boys are recovering from the Chickenpox and your mojo comes back soon. Also hope your Christmas was wonderful.
This card is beautiful. Great colouring and I love (as you can probably tell from some of the cards on my blog) the frosty blue colour scheme - Michelle x
