A Whiff of Joy after Thanksgiving
I hope all my American friends had a Happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I know I did!! I'd have to say it was one of the best ever. My son was home from college and it was such a fun relaxing day.
Well, my husband has been building a new shop, and he and my son decided it needed a basketball hoop inside. So there was a quick trip to Walmart and then the assembly. That gave me some time to make a card while father and son had some bonding time...no complaints from me...*grin*
The minute I saw this sweet Whiff of Joy Snowman called Herb with Teacup, I was in love!! I adore snowmen, and I loved the sweet swirls and his charming outfit!! Of course I had to have him. I stamped him onto Champagne Metallic (Prism) with Tuxedo Black (Memento) and colored him with my copics. I originally had planned to have the sentiment medallion on the outside, but my daughter told me it was too much. So, since I've long admired Denise's (The Paper Landscaper) style of decorating the inside of her cards too, I thought now was the time to give that a try. The sentiment is from the set: Winter Love
The circle and rectangle were cut with my Nestabilities diecuts, and I added a Stampin' Up snowflake, ribbon, dew drops, and stickles. The bottom border was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.
