Finally...a family day!

Today has been the BEST day!  It is the first day in weeks that I have been able to spend entirely with my family.  I got to sleep in until 10:00 (!!) am this morning and then we took our little guy to see The Backyardigans Live this afternoon.  It was so good to just spend time together without feeling like I am on a deadline.  This is what every Sunday should be like!  I actually (almost) feel ready to go back to work on Monday.  
Today's post is a card I designed for the Stamp-A-Stack I did on Wednesday.  It was the only card that wasn't chosen ahead of time by the ladies.  They requested a snowman card using traditional Christmas red and green.  See what I came up with:

Holiday card using the Snow Much Fun set and Frostwood Lodge DSP

Inside of card with sentiment from Many Merry Messages
You know, when I first saw this snowman set in the new catty it really didn't do much for me.  Perhaps it was because I was in the midst of planning swaps for convention during the heat of July, but whatever the reason I just wasn't all that excited about it.  I am happy to say that I was DEAD WRONG about this set!  It is just the cutest and all the many amazing designs I have seen featuring these images are just so inspiring!  In designing this card I tried to keep it simple, knowing that my ladies would be doing three other designs in the same evening.  In the interest of time, I avoided watercolouring the snowmen, though they would look even cuter with a little colour added.  The early espresso baker's twine wrapped around the cardfront and tied in a bow with the tiny little jingle bell as the perfect finishing touch reminds me a little of a package wrapped up ready to go under the tree.  I actually used this design as the inspiration for a card I designed for another SAS I did yesterday afternoon.  I'll show you that one later this week.  In the meantime I'm going to go spend some more quality time with my family!

  1. You're right, Leena, I wasn't blown away by this set when I first saw it either ... now, with all the samples I've seen, I'm really kicking myself for not ordering it!
    TFS!
    Enjoy your family time!
