It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Or at least I WISH it was! No snow here today in MY part of Southern Ontario, though a few of my friends are reporting white stuff a bit further north and west. Lucky them! I can't wait for it to start snowing in earnest. I just love, love, LOVE this time of year!

The Christmas specials are all on TV (next week is A Charlie Brown Christmas!) and last night I watched the CMA Christmas Special - Scotty - swoon!

Anyway...since there's no snow on the ground, you get snow on my card today - in the form of a snowman from Snow Much Fun. I'm pretty sure this my FAVOURITE winter/Christmas set this year. I just keep reaching for it over and over! I CASE'd this card from a fellow demonstrator, but I did a BAD thing and forgot to make note of who it was - OOPS! If it was YOU (or you know who it was), PLEASE let me know so I can give proper credit.

I stamped my snowman in Staz-ON on Whisper White and actually DID use my Watercolour Wonder Crayons and Aqua Painters to colour his hat, boots, scarf and ADORABLE carrot nose! Oh! And those cute little birdies too.

Now, for the most part, I don't use water on Whisper White Cardstock, but since it was such a TINY bit of water, I got away with it. If you try and use too much water, your cardstock will pill and you'll end up with a nasty mess. A light hand is key here.

This is just ONE of the six (times 3 = 18) cards we'll be making at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack on Saturday December 10th. I still have a few spaces left and you'll have 18 (!) cards completed in under 4 hours. The cost is $40 and if you RSVP with payment on or before December 6th, I'll have a SPECIAL treat for you!
