Snowman Valentine Card Class - Card Four

   The fourth and last card from the Snowman Valentine Card Class is the "Joyful" Snowman, who is thrilled to be out in the snow on Valentine's Day.  The strip background is three different patterns of pink...the ground is embossed with hearts....and the snowman is tossing cream colored hearts into the air above him. We should all be as happy as he is!

Snowman Valentine Card Class - Card Three

    Card Three of the Snowman Valentine Card Class.....a pink and lavender Inchie Background with three cream colored hearts decorting the right side. The centerpiece of the card is a slightly wonky snowman wearing pink earmuffs....because it's not easy to stand out there in the cold!

January 2018 Sampler - Llama Love

                                      Llamas are so popular right now and why not?....they're fluffy and have such adorable faces...I want one. Since the chance of me getting a llama is slim...I made this month's sampler a Llama Love Sampler.  Bright colors, sweet llamas, exotically colored flowers...perfect for the month of  January.

Snowman Valentine - Card Two

               Card Two of the Snowman Valentine Cards has an Inchie background framed with lavender cardstock. The snowman is a Silhouette cut in a frame. His hat and scarf are separate pieces that have been embossed for texture on the cream cardstock. A pink heart adds a little more color to the snowman.

                              My card for the CARS (Chicago Area Rubber Stampers) January meeting. The theme was "Snowman". ...and my card was all ready and waiting to go. Unfortunately, the meeting was cancelled due to expected bad weather....but it's cold enough that the snowman will keep until the next meeting.
