Vintage Snowman

Most of what I've been making lately is Halloween themed and I really needed a break from it, so while I was at the crop at Priceless Friday night, I went down and picked out this cute snowman image from Impression Obsession. I have been wanting him since he showed up in the store a couple of weeks ago. I didn't bring any Christmas stamps with me that night, so it was the perfect excuse to add this cutie to my collection of about 5000 snowman images!! Well, it may not be that many, really, but they do take up a whole corner of my closet in the stamp room!
I was also excited to see that Trish had gotten in the 8 x 8 stack of the Graphic 45 Christmas papers. I had gotten the 12 x 12 stack, but for cards, I really prefer the smaller papers. Makes the patterns closer and better for small projects. Into the basket it went! She had also gotten in some new Nesties, so I added a set of those to my collection, too!! And here's the card!! Still haven't found my Momento black ink, so I am still working with the Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol for coloring. My Copics are feeling very neglected!! I guess I'll just have to buy a new ink pad! It's probably hiding in the same place as all four of my paper piercers!!!
Well, have a great Sunday! I'm going to spending some more time with granddaughter Kyli and then get some lesson plans done. Maybe even some stamping!!!
