Snow Happy

Who's on a roll with blog posts this week? This girl right here!! I shouldn't have even typed that though in case I jinx myself. Eek! I feel pretty good about it though. I think I have the hang of this and it's fun! Hee, hee.

Today's card turned out so adorable, in my opinion. It makes me want snow so I can build a snowman. The weather man here in Cumming, Ga keeps messing with my emotions by telling us we "might" get snow. I try not to get excited every time I see it on my weather app but I'm quite certain I will always get a little giddy when I see it.

I guess until we get snow this year I will have to stick with using snowmen, snowflakes and white puffy paint to get the feel of snow. The first challenge that I'm entering my card in to for this week is Merry Monday Challenge. It is a Christmas card challenge. Yes, you read it correctly! The goal of this challenge is to get you ready for Christmas! If you create a card every week you will not be crazy getting all your cards done once that time rolls around. You will have more than enough in your stash! So excited about doing this.


My take on the challenge




I love this snowman from Peachy Keen Stamps. Their faces are just so adorable and can be used in so many different ways. I'm not great at coloring so I just tried a little bit for now. I liked him being mostly white since he is made with snow, after all.

I am also entering this card in to 2 more challenges. Both of which I've never entered in to before so it's just excitement all around.

The other two are for Seize the Sketch and Just Us Girls.



Paper piercing is a little out of my comfort zone but it was a lot of fun and so easy!! I'm excited about finding all of these new challenges to really use my creativity.

Hope these inspire you as well!

Have a great day and happy stampin!
