Thanks A Snow Lot




I want to say "Thank You" to all my wonderful followers right here on my blog. I wish that I could make and send each and every one of you a card but since I can't I'm posting one here, just for YOU!! I appreciate all your words of encouragement and to all my loyal followers, YOUR THE BEST!!! You have no idea how much I appreciate your feedback, it really keeps me going.

For this card I really wanted to do something that was an Un-traditional thank you card. (is that a word? Cause I just made it one). I also just love the new Tim Holtz snowman Stamp from his Christmas Blueprint set. It's such a great set and snowmen are my favorite at this time of year so I had to use him. I also used some leftover Poinsettia cut outs from the ornament in the last post. I had some leftover and I just couldn't let them go to waste. I also added a little "thank you" sign that I created from black cardstock, I just cut it out myself and then wrote the words, trying to mimic Tim's stamp letters and doing a horrible job haha! I then cut a little slit in the snowman and put the sign through so it looks like he is holding it. I added a little dimensional sticky behind the sign to make it pop a little off the card too.
I'm using mostly BoBunny paper for this card, I really love the blues in this paper combo.
I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week, which is "Thank You" and what a fitting time of year to give a Thank You. 
I'm also going to enter this one into the Simon Says Challenge Blog the challenge this week is to do something in Dawny's sketch, use the template she created. It's beautiful, you should go have a look.
Of course Simon Says Store is offering their usual 50.00 gift card to a random winner again this week, for each of these challenges. YAY!! Double the pleasure double the fun haha!
I hope you like the card!!
