Another snowman in purple!

While I had this paper out I decided to color another of the great snowmen that Cindy (YLM) sent to me in our trade. She had the snowman stamped a little to the right which also gave me the idea for this card. The My Mind's Eye 29th Market Street paper looks like snowball so I decided to only use this as my dp. I nearly had the card together and I thought the rectangle main image looked a little boring so I got out my coluzzle mat and circle template and cut the top in a semi circle. I like it much better. To stamp the sentiment I used my black SU marker and colored the "thank" part of the sentiment from SU's Short and Sweet. I cleaned that off really well then markered the "you" part so I could put it underneath.
I used amethyst ink and an old SU snowflake for the bg and sponged the edges in amethyst too.
The copic markers I used are as follows: BG10 (a real favorite of mine!) for the snowman and for the purple hat and scarf I used BV00, B63, BV13 and a touch of BV08.

I also photographed the inside of the card. I sponged white paper with Almost amethyst, then used Eggplant and Almost Amethyst to stamp these beautiful scrolled snowflakes from Magnolia-licious.


They are on sale now. You get the two sizes for $5.00.
As always, my sincere thanks for stopping by! I'm gathering up some goodies for when I reach 10,000 hits on my counter. All comments are read and reread!
Hope your day is fun! Blessings for 2009 to all of you!
