Snowman Family - Create with Connie & Mary #219

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I got a lot of gardening done.  I'm thankful for that day because it's supposed to rain today - with a risk of frost tonight.  Thank goodness my geraniums are inside.
Before we know it, our children will be making snowmen like in the card I made for the sketch challenge with Create with Connie & Mary here

2012 Create Challenges-035 

Technique:
This 5 by 5" card has a base of Baja breeeze embossed with the Northern Flurries folder.
This image was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Black Stazon ink and die cut using the Labels framelit.  It was colored using SU markers; the outline was coloured with Bashful blue and an Aquapainter.  Some dazzling diamonds was placed on the fur cuff of the hat, and dazzling details was lightly applied around the edges of each of the snow people.
A strip of designer paper was placed alsong the bottom edge.
Using the Snow Flurry die, 2 snowflakes were die cut using Silver glimmer paper - a medium one and a small one.  A red glimmer brad was inserted in the middle of each of them.  They were attached to the card on the left lower image with glue dots.

Stamps: Frosty Friends, Winter Memories
Inks: Black Stazon, SU markers
Papers: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Snow Festival designer paper
Accessories: Snow Flurry die, Labels framelit, Dazzling details, Dazzling diamonds, Glimmer Brads, Aqua painter

I really need to buy that snowman stamp. We are a family of 5 and it would be perfect for us except that no one is a baby anymore and all my boys are taller than me! I'm so glad you joined the Create with Connie & Mary challenge this week.
