Happy Valentine's Day Snowman--Paper Smooches Fun and Cute Challenge

Hi there :) It's celebration time over at Paper Smooches and in honor of their anniversary, the lovely owner, Kim, is having a fun and cute challenge! Since I can absolutely do fun and cute, and since I'm all about challenges because I finally have this blog (still celebrating!), I decided to join!  I made this adorable Valentine's Day card for my little guy and he thought it was so pretty :) 


Here is a close-up of the snowman.  I made him glittery because  I love sparkly snow and I have Mother Nature to thank for piling it up high this year :)  I made the heart in the sentiment glossy to add interest.


I used the Freezy Fellas stamp set from Paper Smooches and I must say it's absolutely adorable and the quality is fantastic! I wanted to note that I am so happy with their customer service. I emailed them this week expressing gratitude for low shipping costs, and the owner actually emailed me back! She was honest, appreciative and genuine, all qualities I really value and respect. Thanks again, Kim!

Back to the card.  In addition to the stamp set, I also used the following supplies:
clear embossing powder, Versamark, Memento ink, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8, Copic markers, Glossy Accents, pop dots, and some really stretchy string that I got at a yard sale last year. It worked great because I could move the sentiment around before deciding where I wanted it.  I'm really happy with how this card turned out and the smile on my son's face when he opened it was absolutely priceless :)

Thanks for stopping by!
