Warm Wishes 45

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, February 3, 2011 @ 9:30 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! I'm so happy it's almost Friday (2.5hrs)! My weekend starts at the end of my shift ~ 3:00 pm SHARP! I'm lovin' my new job~no call and no weekends! YAHOOO!!! The weather has been crazy all over the United States and Australia! Thankfully we haven't had any snow flurries to report here in my neck of the woods (Ahwatukee, AZ) but many parts of the country have been getting pounded with heavy snow fall and frigid temperatures, including my hometown of Orchard Park, NY where I have a few friends still residing :) I made this card for my sweet friends Sue and John:
I love this little snowman from Waltzingmouse Sewing Box - Christmas - he's one of my faves :) You can see in the photo below that I stamped him x 2 and paperpieced one on to of the other, popping him up with a few foam squares for a bit of dimension.
My sweet friend Lisa recommended this fun sketch challenge site called Sketch Saturday. There was so much great inspiration and I loved the sketch, so I played along with this week's Sketch Saturday #140:
These are the Copic markers used to color the sweet snowman and heart images:
I finally get to share on my blog my warm winter wishes card that was published in CARDS magazine: January issue :) Here's the magazine version:
and here he is in my light tent before sending him off:
I hope you stay safe and keep warm wherever you may be! I will be back Saturday for an all new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Thanks for looking ~ Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sewing Box - Christmas, Very Vintage Christmas
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-295 Lacey Squares, S4-126 Classic Squares LG, S4-290 Labels Fourteen, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur

Congratulations Mona! Totally well deserved. The card published is fab as is its Little Bro/Sis. I'd love to know how you fashion the back of your cards (the section for writting on) for the Labels One card in particular or any card made with Grand Nesties Labels. Do you cut another same sized label, score the back of it and attach to the front label (front of the card)? Questions Questions. But really, all that to say is well done and beautiful cards.
