Even Warmer Winter Wishes

Hi guys! The weekend is almost over and I am NOT ready for the grind again just yet. I hope your weekend has been full of fun though. I better get some stamping time in soon because I am in withdrawal. It is a good thing I had several cards made ahead to show you this weekend I guess.

Today's card is
another winter themed card. I have made so many "wintery" cards this year! I think that means I have too many snowman stamps and papers, right? I just never get tired of coloring little scarves and hats on chubby little white people, LOL! So, you wanna see?

If you had told me 5 yrs ago that I would pair dark jewel tones and brown with snowmen, I would have laughed. Isn't it funny how paper manufacturers can dictate our style as we go along with this hobby? Anywho, this is my card! The sketch came from the Viva la Verve with aTwist Challenges. I turned it on it's side though. I don't usually do that. I am so boring! When I see a sketch, I rarely visualize using it in a different orientation. I already had my image stamped and ready though so I wanted to use a sketch with a "landscape" focal point. I like how this one worked. :)

I think you have heard this line from me recently but I have to get ready for work. So, I'll leave you with a supply list and a sincere wish for a great week. Stay warm wherever you are and try to fit in lots of hobby time...whatever that hobby may be. Heck, maybe I will be able to fit in a little crochet time as well as stamping. Dream big I always say. Bye for now!
