Happy Monday and a Couple of Cards

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you are all having a great start to your week.

I am popping in with a couple of cards I created. The first was inspired by Happy Little Stampers CAS Tis the Season Challenge and the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #245-Anything Goes.

I am obsessed with these little snowmen from Hello Bluebird but I DO NOT WANT REAL SNOW anytime soon!!

I did some stenciling with SSS Falling Snow Stencil and modeling paste. When it dried, I added an MFT snowflake die cut in the middle.

I then added some images from Hello Bluebird's "Frosty Friends" and "Frosty Littles" stamp sets. I did a bunch of experimentation in coloring my snowmen so each one is different.

The sentiment is also Hello Bluebird. It is from their "Typed Christmas" stamp set. I have an affinity for typed sentiments and tend to purchase them when I don't need them!!

Finishing touches to my card include Orange Stickles on the nose, Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen and Glossy accents on the bird and scarf. Even my CAS cards have to have a bit of shine or they don't seem finished!!

My second card is another snowman card I created for a previous Freshly Made Sketches but then didn't post in time.

I created the background using different pink Distress Inks and some acrylic paint that I had watered down and spritzed with a tooth brush.

Again, I used another Hello Bluebird Snowman, along with a SSS Snowflake die cut.

I know that all these cards are pretty simple but I have a ton to make and send this year unless I can get my daughter to have a photo shoot at Thanksgiving.

I like the simple sentiments too. I have not stamped any inside yet but will do that later.

On a different subject, has anyone been doing the coloring challenge?

Here are two days of coloring that I did on Friday and Saturday.

I added some sparkle onto the tree too but did not take a photo of that. Will be fun to make cards with these later.

That is all from me today!! Have a FABULOUS day!!
