After spending several months following the blogs of others, I've decided to give it a go myself. I truly love crafts of all kinds, but paper holds a special attraction...okay, okay...addiction for me. Seems I am constantly on the lookout for ideas that are new and different, and fortunately for me I have a friend or two who are my enablers.

The first creation I want to share with you is this card that I have created for a swap. It features a darling little snowman made using a pattern from http://www.myscrapchick.com/. He has been hand cut from textured cardstock found at Hobby Lobby. I've chalked each piece and added details with a fine point marker and white gel roll pen. Dimension was achieved with foam pop dots. He is mounted on smooth cardstock that I embossed using my cuttlebug and the swirl embossing folder. The designer paper is from the All Seasons paper pack by The Paper Studio and the ribbon is from Michael's.



The sentiment inside is computer generated, and the envelope is handmade from coordinating paper then lined inside with the same designer paper. This card measures 6"x6".
Thank you for stopping by to visit me today! Have a great weekend!
