Happy Winter

It's the weekend!! Life continues to be incredibly busy here. Only two more weeks before my holidays begin and yes, I AM counting! I'm spending the day with my husband, shopping in Toronto. Hopefully, we finish things up. I basically need stocking stuffers and a couple of things for the boys. Plus, I'm on the hunt for an ugly Christmas sweater for a party next Friday.

I'm sharing a fun little project over at My Craft Spot today. I made this quick set of cards to tuck in with little thank you gifts this season. The sweet little snowman is from the Jar Full of Christmas stamp set. Before stamping, I imported the image into my Silhouette software and created an offset for the shape. Once cut, I used my Stampin' Up Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the stamp. After colouring the noses and arms, I added little bows made with traditional red baker's twine. Each snowman is popped on his 3x4 card.

The banner at the bottom of my cards was cut from the Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies and stamped with a sentiment from Think Snow. I also added a little silver snowflake, created with Small Alphabet metal dies, to each card.

Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Oh my goodness so adorable? Love this fabulous set of cards you created.

I must learn how to do the offset. Not sure how to import images, but that would save me a ton of time.

I hope you get everything done you need and you find that ugly sweater!!! I saw some at our local Sam's Club. Do they have them there? It's a warehouse club by Wal-Mart. You can always search the 2nd hand thrift stores! Good luck! You must share pictures!

These are darling, Kate. I just got some snowman stamps I am anxious to create with. Who knew that ugly sweaters would become popular. I'm sorry I gave mine away.
