Hi Everyone! Happy Columbus Day to my American friends & Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends :) If you have the day off from work, I hope you are enjoying yourself doing something fun! I would like to thank those of you who have visited the Just Us Girls Challenge site, signed up to be a girlfriend & have left a comment :) If you haven't already, I sure hope you do :) There are MANY fun things going on over there so I hope YOU join along! For those of you who are not aware, you DO NOT need a blog to play along in weekly challenges. All you need to do is establish a free account with a public gallery such as Splitcoast Stampers, SCS, take a picture of your photo, then upload it to your newly established gallery & post the link on the Just Us Girls blog using Mr. Linky!. If you need help with this process, by all means email me & I will be more than happy to help you :) My friend Julie, over at Julie's Open Window, sent me an email yesterday sharing her incredible news that the snow was flying in Illinois already! Yikes! Julie's news inspired me to make this snowman card! I had sooo much fun with this week's paper piecing technique for the Just Us Girls second challenge, JUGS2, & celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the use of PINK on my creation, I decided to make another card! For sketch inspiration, I used the CPS137 sketch & just flipped it sideways. For more inspiration, be sure to visit both the Just Us Girls & the Card Positioning Systems sites :) I'd love to know if you have given this paper piecing technique a try? Be Sweet!
Here is my paper pieced Snowman card:
Here are some of the supplies I used to make this card:
I wanted to show you how this lil' guy looks so cute, embossed & close up!
