Have an Ice Day


Good Morning. This week has flown by. I have been really busy at work. I did find some time to put together this card. It's nice to take a break and have a little fun.

This is a High Hopes stamp I bought last year. I like the big hat and goofy smile.

These are the challenges this fits.

Techno Stamper - Sketch - I really like the sketch this week.

Frosted Designs - Embossing - I wanted to add a little more dimension so I embossed the brown patterned paper in addition to the punched sides.

Pile it on - Enough with winter colors. Brown and Green are definitely non winter colors for me!

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Charm - My gloves

Crafty Anns - Metal - My charm is my metal

Fab & Funky - Emboss - I embossed the DP & green punched sides

The Pink Elephant - It's their 1st birthday and the challenge was to go through the last year of challenges and pick your favorite. Mine is Winter. I love making snow cards!

Incy Wincy Designs
- Put your hats on - Make a card with a hat. This theme is what had me thinking about this stamp.

Saturday Spotlight - The bigger the better. Something had to be oversized. One of the things I like about this stamp is his oversized hat.

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - This was an open challenge to do anything we like!

Thank you for stopping by and looking at my card. I love reading your comments. Thanks to everyone who lets me know what they think.
