A Frosty Snowman

Last week I traveled out to DeKalb to my friend Patti's house for a Close To My Heart gathering. I met Patti and another stamping friend, Priscilla, and we went out to dinner. Then it was back to Patti's house for a fun evening of stamping. Our friend Amy is a CTMH consultant and she did a great job.

This is one of the cards we got to make and it uses the Stamp of the Month. I got him for free with my qualifying purchase. They have some very cute stamps, especially if you are a scrapbooker, which I hope to be. I have very few pages made, but I have 27+ years of photos to scrapbook! Yikes! Of course, I will not scrap them all, but I would like to get several albums done. When they are just in boxes or plain photo albums with no journaling, much is lost. The last time my oldest was home, we were going through an album and I was surprised at all of the things I thought he knew, but didn't. If I could scrap and journal, the information would be there. I have many, many photos from my folks, and Wayne's folks, that we just don't know anything about, and there is no one to ask. So sad.

Well, enough of my espousing the virtues of scrapbooking! I can't tell you too much about the card, other than it uses CTMH papers. They have a white core, so we created the striped look by scoring the paper and then sanding to expose the white. I like the look. I added some glitter gel pen to the hat and scarf when I got home. This guy makes me happy! I'm glad he'll becoming to my house!

Thanks for visiting!
