Gosh, what a fun week we've had showing off the new stamp sets Flourishes is releasing this month! All have a wintery feel and all could be used for either winter creations or even Christmas cards. Today's set offers up heartwarming images that is sure to give whoever receives a card made with this set a warm glow!

Introducing...
This whimsical set, drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley delivers not only the cutest snowman you've ever seen but some darling mittens and snowflakes to match! This set also has a handful of sentiments that will surely warm the heart!

On to my creation!

When I first laid eyes on this set, I swooned. You have no idea how much I LOVE snowmen! And, cute snowmen like this one just make my heart swell! So, I knew I wanted to make this guy the center of my creation. After stamping in black ink on my Flourishes Classic White card stock, I picked up my Copic markers and just lightly colored his hat, scarf, and the little birdie and then accented the snow with a soft blue marker. (I used B24, B26, B000, R29, E25, YR07, C03, C07 and a colorless blender pen). Then, after I was done coloring, I did add some glitter glue to give my snow guy some razzle dazzle!

I also added some silver stitching around my mat for my snow guy and then some fun 1/2" red ribbon. Add a few buttons and some fun baker's twine and... voila.. done!

Would you like to win this set? Please leave a comment on this post and we'll draw a winner and announce it on Saturday when we post our Winner's Circle for the week!
