Merry Snowperson, MOJO414, CCC29, RRCB22, NBUS5


Hi there, Stampers! I've been  diligently trying to get a few Christmas Cards done each month and my stash is piling up nicely. I may wind up with more cards than I have friends, LOL! I had great fun making this card, thanks to a borrowed stamp set from my wonderful friend and neighbor. What's better than a neighbor who stamps?! I needed a stamp with a snowperson and believe it or not I do not own a single one. Don't worry, I'm on that!



I was able to play along with four challenges with this card. I started out with the sketch from Mojo Monday. Next comes the inspiration challenge at CASE-ing Christmas, which I'm playing along with for the first time. I was inspired by the cute snowman and shades of blue. At Retro Rubber, Anything Goes, but you must use stamps older than one year. This one dates back to 2001. I wasn't even stamping yet! Last but definately not least is the NBUS Challenge. I've never used my borrowed stamp set before, for sure. I hope that qualifies.


I also thought I'd mention that I'm not only Retro and NBUS, but also UFO today! My Un-Finished Object is the embossed background panel. When I ran it through the Big Shot, I was rushing and the pads weren't correctly lined up, so my embossing fades out on the bottom. It almost wound up in the trash a year ago, but I thought I'd save it. For this card I thought it would work nicely as it allowed me to stamp a sentiment at the bottom. Score!

Sandy, I just love Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay together. This card really hit the spot for the CASE with CASE-ing Christmas Challenge. The snowfall texture is right on the spot as well. Thanks for joining in on the fun at CASE-ing Christmas. Blessings, Belinda

Hi, Sandy! This card is adorable and I would suggest making a few more of them before your neighbor wants that cute stamp back! The layout is perfect for this Christmas card. (And I really doubt that you will run out of friends to send your beautiful cards to!) Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber this week and hope you will play again soon!

This is such a super cute stamp, and I love those teal blue colors! What a great way to use your embossed piece that didn't come out right, and a great idea to try intentionally! Thanks for playing along with us at CASE-ing Christmas!

Cute snowman card!

I used to have a next door neighbor who stamped with me...(several times a week) But she moved...

But, fortunately, she now still travels to my house about once a week and stamps with me...and Yes, we use each others supplies all the time! (so I feel like I have twice the goodies available to me to use...)
