Check out this snowman!!

Happy Sunday everyone!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! I had an absolute blast cropping at Archiver's this weekend - it was so fun - I got some stamping done and got to spend some time with great friends - what's better than that? I am a little bummed though - I just saw my best friend who was staying with me this weekend off this morning - I miss her already!! She lives in Southern Indiana - about 3 and a half hours away - so we don't get to see each other often - so I always look forward to these weekends!! I SO wished we lived closer - but we've already decided that we'd probably get into A LOT of trouble if we did - hee hee...so I'll look forward to occasional visits and that day when her hubby decides to come be a Pharmacist up here in Indy - hee hee...which may not happen anytime soon after she discovered what exactly a "round-about" is - LOL!!! Love you, Jennifer!!! ;)

Anywho - I wanted to share this little cutie-patootie stamp set I bought at Archiver's this weekend - I fell in love with these Jumbo Stampendous stamp sets when I saw them at CHA and then Archiver's recently got them in and I HAD to have this snowman - he is just too cute!! These jumbo sets are fun because you can stretch and smoosh the main image in them to make different sizes - so you can make a smaller and chubbier snowman or a tall skinny one - they are really fun!! I stamped my snowman just the normal size though - and stamped his scarf, hat and buttons on him. I colored him with my Copics and then cut him out before I put him on my card. I tore some strips of white paper for some snow underneath him and the little cardinal is from the snoman set as well. The sentiment is by Stampendous as well. I cut a section of the card front off too just to give kind of a different look to the card. I'm sure you'll be seeing this guy on my blog more - this was just kind of a quick idea I did with him at the crop this weekend and have a lot more things I want to try with him. Thanks so much for stopping by - have a wonderful Sunday - GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
