They are Melting...Promise!

I am almost afraid to post this card, for fear of massive snowballs being thrown in my direction. I know, I know...I have made a lot of snowmen this winter! In my defense, we do get a lot of snow and I need to do something to embrace it!

I pinky promise...this is the last one...




So, the criss-cross card. This is my first one. I know what you are thinking. And no, I don't live under a rock! I am not sure why I waited so long to make one! It was a blast to make! Thanks Jen for inspiring me!

Stamps: Snowy Friends (CTMH), Priceless (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Red Riding Hood Red, Ski Slope DSP (yes, I have used this a lot, too and it is almost gone!), GP White
Ink: Red Riding Hood Red, Nick Bantock Lamp Black, Copics (B60, Y17, Y15, YG95, YG91, R37, BG10, 0)
Accessories: SU Red Riding Hood Ribbon, Making Memories Snowflake Brads, Stickles

Thanks for looking!

Snowmen are just great on cards - IRL, not so much! It's a very cute card though so as far as I am concerned you just post as many as you want - whatever inspires you, right?

Stephanie said...

As long as we don't get the snow to make real snowmen, I won't mind your cards at all! Cute layout!

Elizabeth said...

The snowman is a cutie. You did a great job on the card. I have only ever done one criss-cross - I may have to try one again. Thanks for the inspiration.

Siobhan, I love how you used two different patterns. Of course, I also love the snowman, and the tab and the ribbon...

Hi
I absolutely love this card and snowmen which I have collected for years. We are expecting a bad storm tomorrow 6-8 inches, I plan on staying indoors all day and playing with stamps... Oh and I promise I won't throw snowballs your way.

Louise Forsyth said...

This is so cute and I LOVE your snowmen so no snowballs from me xx

Diane said...

Adorable! What a cute snowman. My niece (Desperately Seeking Stamps, Kim) was the first one to introduce me to the criss-cross card and I love it. Haven't done one in a while, so it will be fun to do it again. I'm excited to be joining you on Oceans 11! Glad I'll have the change to get to know you better and see lots of your creative designs!

katiesniche said...

Great criss-cross card!
Hey, we were in Japan from '04-'07, well Okinawa Japan...so you must be on mainland if you have all that snow. We loved our tour there. Enjoy!!

theneon said...

Yer hilarious -- pinky promise and all. I love it!

Becki B said...

That is the cutest snowman. It is still snowing here too, so don't feel bad. Waiting for winter to end still have a month to go, but here we never have spring so I won't hold my breath!!! Love the card!!!!

Traci said...

I love your card! I've never made a criss cross card! It looks like a lot of fun though. I love that snowman, he looks so fun! Great job on the card.

Rachel Brumley said...

Such a cute card! I love the colors used. And no, you won't get any snowballs from me! I'll be making Christmas cards all year long.

Naomi said...

I love making these cards, they really are fun to create. Yours looks amazing. That's my fave holiday DSP ever!

Gina said...

We never get enough snow, so I love all the snowman cards! Very cute.

peggysue said...

That is really pretty, and I always like seeing winter themed cards . . . we get enough winter here for three seasons worth (sometimes) so the theme is almost always relevant! :)

CathyRose said...

I'm loving your snowmen. I don't have a single snowman stamp so it is fun to see yours! Your did a great job on the Criss Cross card!

Maria (Inky Stamper) said...
