{SFYTT Snowman}

Hello all---

YIKES! Another week has gone by without a post---I can't believe it! I'm working on a lot of Christmas presents, so I haven't gotten much done that I can post yet!

I did decide to do Jen's Sketch for You to Try this week. I always like her sketches, but I hadn't done one in awhile.

I LOVE this little snowman and I had been itching to use this new Papertrey Ink Patterned Paper Polka Dot Parade. I thought the pattern with Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides and Aqua Mist were perfect for this little guy.

I need to run an errand before I pick up Joshua, so this will be short (OK, as short as I can do!) I used Jen's sketch and the patterned paper, so I already had a layout and a color scheme---what else did I need?

I stamped the snowman and then paper pieced his hat and his gloves. I glued his gloves onto linen thread and stuck them to the dimensional glue dot on the back of the snowman. I used buttons as my accents and I didn't use ribbon---it's a miracle! I decided that linen thread could pass as a ribbon---of sorts---yeah, that's my story! So, there it is--a quick card---just for fun!

Snowman stuff:

Stamps: Made of Snow Paper: Ocean Tides, Ripe Avocado, Aqua Mist, Polka dot Parade Ink: Palette Noir, Ripe Acocado, Ocean Tides Accessories: Foof-a-la buttons, Corner Rounder, Linen thread (SU!), 3-D glue dots (Zots), Swiss Dot CB embossing folder, Cuttlebug

If you are still here---I have to show these two pictures---the first one is honestly just minutes after Joshua woke up on Monday morning--remember he had been to church the day before, so he had the leftover "gel" in his hair. I knew it was time for a haircut---but WOW---nothing tells the truth like a picture. SO, what do you think? Should I have left it?
Or, should I have done this? It's really too late to ask, but I just thought I'd get your thoughts!! Ahhh, much better!
Have a great day~
