May CAS Christmas Challenge - Snowman



It's time for CAS Christmas challenge, Susan is our host and I can guarantee there will be tons of inspiration from the Design Team and Guest Designer Barb of Barb's Studio Creations.  May's theme is Snowmen and I just found out I have soooo many snowmen, some have never been inked up, I'm so excited. 😉
Drop by and check out the CAS Christmas challenge rules and then come play with us, you'll have fun I promise. The challenge goes to May 26th and the Winner and Outstanding Designs will be announced on the 28th.


Every so often I want to pull out my pencils, pencil sharpener and Kraft card stock- this is the result.

My Snowman is one of the Christmas collection stamps from Sugar Nellie and my sentiment if from the Paper Artsy JOFY Christmas collection .I must admit this is one of my favorite sentiment  stamps for Christmas, it's so versatile.


Here is a close up of that adorable Snowman, I hope you like him as much as I do.


I hope you play along with us this month.

  14. I like how you colored the snowman on kraft, but that sentiment is so cool! It almost looks hand-drawn and doodled!

  15. This is such a handsome and cute snowman, Christine! The card has a warm and rustic feeling. I love how you colored him! Adding some white/light blue shadows outside of the outline makes the snowman pop in a subtle way. The sentiment font style and the craft cs match the pencil-colored snowman so well. Hideko xx
