Snowman Snowball

                         Wow! I can't believe it is December already! 

We had some snow a couple weeks ago where I live but some double digit temperatures melted it the following week. There snow was perfect for building a snowman - you know, the wet, heavy kind. A few children in my neighbourhood decided to do just that.......and unknowingly inspired me! 

I coloured the stamp with alcohol markers and along with a few "extras" while I was at it. I mounted my image on cardstock and fussy cut my "extras".

 I went with some none traditional Christmas colours on this card which ended up being perfect for the new Stampendous "Snow" I used for the corners and under the snowball. This is a great new product that you don't need extra ink for - you place it and heat it! How easy is that! It has pink, blue and yellow flecks in it - perfect for the colours I chose. Gotta love when a road trip to One Crazy Stamper gives you the perfect product to finish a card with! 

After adding my "snow", I stamped my sentiment, matted it and added my two "extras". I added a fence and a bingo card to finish it off.
