A Merry Christmas Snowman - Paper Cupcakes Monday Challenge
Hello everyone - (I have to edit this post very quickly to say a big "oops" - apparently the challenge was to use "traditional" red and green colors with this image - I didn't follow instructions very well - I do apologize) this has been a very stressful week for me and I am so glad that it has come to an end and a new week is beginning. My dad went into emergency with a blood clot in his head last Tuesday night and they had to operate the same day. It was quite a scare for our family but thankfully everything went well and he is now home again on the mend. I am actually excited about this upcoming week as both my oldest son and my daughter are coming home for a few days - they won't be home for Christmas but I am just thankful that they will be home for a few days before. We are having our family Christmas dinner on Saturday night. This is the first Christmas my husband and I will be home alone - I know I won't like it - but I knew that one day it would happen. They are all adults now and have lives of their own. This card was made for Paper Cupcakes Monday challenge - we are all to use the same super cute image - A Merry Christmas Snowman 2 illustrated by the very talented Nina May of Paper Cupcakes digi stamps. (Again I do apologize for not following the challenge as far as colors) I wanted to make a colorful card so I found lots of different colorful DP and layered them. I colored the image with my copics and added a button, some twine, a quikutz corner die and a few dark red brads. I used some Tim Holtz black Soot distress ink around some of the edges as well. I hope you enjoy your week. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
Your stamping friend, Debbie
