Stamp Simply.... Let it SNOW!!

Hi all! TGIF!!! It's time for another Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime118) and this one is hoping to give you all... a white Christmas! All you need to do is incorporate some snowy element into your creation! Use anything that says snow - winter, ice, snowflakes - whatever your little wintery heart desires! And, while you're at it - try to make it a "clean and simple" a.k.a. CAS design!

So... here's what I have!

I have to admit, this is -- kind of-- a "repurposed" card. The main image was a part of a card that I made in a SU class that I took with my friend Sheila. Well, I got home and realized all of my layers were crooked! Don't you hate that? I swear, I need glasses! I loved the main image - cute, clean and mod! So, I ripped that off my card front and redesigned! Add some dp, a mat, some stitching, some sheer ribbon and a 1" circle punch for your "Warm Wishes" message (Hero Arts) I wish I knew the SU stamp set! I can't recall! But - basically, I stamped the tree four times - one on the base, and then one on a small, medium and large circle punch and layered it up using foam tape. I cut a shwoopy do for my snowy ground, add some sparkly "snow" and that's pretty much it!

Now, please humor me and stick with me for this next part of the post. I was making my card and my hubby comes in and says -- "What cha doin'?" Well, I tell him that the Stamp Simply challenge is snow -- anything snow. He says, 'Oh, that would be easy'. I raise my eyebrow (yes, only one) and say, 'Really... Come on. Seriously?' He's got this goofy smile on his face and I say, "Ok, have at it. You do the challenge this week too." Well, my friends, this is hubby's attempt.

It's a snowman in a snow storm. Yep -- I thought most of us left that joke back in 1st grade. Not hubby! I think he's still laughing. Ahhhhh..... well, at least he pays attention to my stamping addiction! Could be worse! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!! Be sure to check out the rest of the Stamp Simply gals.....
