OWH MWT - color challenge

Okay, so today is a day when I didn't have to 'think cool,' it actually WAS cooler (my kids went outside this morning and came in and asked for sweaters. Haven't heard that in a while!). Still, I went with some winter cards today. :)

The mid-week throwdown over at the Stars & Stamps blog is a complimentary color challenge, so I tried to focus on the red and green. Oh, quick story first! I found this Basic Grey Jovial line last year and LOVED this snowman paper, and then during the Memorial Day OWH bloghop this year Basic Grey had those card kits for $5, right? Which I just had to have, and I happened to click over to their stamps and found THESE Jovial line stamps on sale for $4. Which just meant they needed to come to my house, so they did. And how FUN! It's like paper doll dress up with stamps. :)


















Thanks for visiting me today! :)

  2. I'm crazy about snowmen (or snow-people) and this paper is darling. It looks like you had fun creating this classy-looking snowman! Thanks for the link to the stamp set.

  3. Of course those papers had to go to your house. Anyone would know that. LOL I just love the glasses on the snowman. Great card, Jen.

  6. I've never seen a snowman with glasses before. That's awesome! I like how you let the mittens and hat pop out of the rectangle a bit because it makes the snowman look dimensional.

  7. Hee hee! That is so cute, Jen! I love the stamp...especially the glasses. The ribbon banners are really cute, too.
