OCC Sketch & GC44 3 Colors You Love

Today, I woke up to bright sunshine and wonderful warm weather....ahhh Spring! Because I am by nature contrary, I decided to give my favorite winter stamp it's last fling before Spring officially descends!! Yeah, yeah, I know...I've been bellyaching about the snow for the last two months....

I found this delightful sketch on Our Creative Corner this morning and decided to couple it with the 3 Colors You Love Challenge on Gingersnap Creations. I adore red and oranges together and decided to couple them with bright white! Usually, I use these colors for fun in the sun Summer cards but, like I said, I woke up feeling contrary.

Here he is:

Smilin' Snowy
Snowy (Penny Black)
Paper: Samara (Daisy D's)
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red (Stampin Up); watercolor
Ink: Timber Brown (StazOn)
Markers: Only Orange, Real Red, Ruby Red and Bashful Blue (Stampin Up)
Embellishments: 2 orange prima flowers; 1 red brad
Tools: scallop punch (Martha Stewart); aquapainter (Stampin Up)

Hope your day is warmly filled with smiles!

  5. You just can't go wrong with a Penny Black stamp. Just darling! Love the warm snowy colors you used too.

  6. How FUN is this snowman?!!! I must say though, that I am glad for the rain that is on it's way with our nearly 4 degrees should take care of the final 6 or so inches of snow that still sitting on my lawn! As for the mountains of it that are plowed up on the streets, that will take more than a bit of rain!
