Snowmen melt my heart

Mornin' fellow stampers!

So how are things? I've been keepin' busy and if you hadn't guessed it from all my quick cards this week, I've not had a whole lot of time to devote to crafting. And even though I hope to get back into the full swing of crafty things soon I've still got one more quicky card today and it is for the ATS Wednesday challenge.
This week we are challenging everyone to use snowmen in some way on your card and I decided to raid my scrap bag to put it all together. I didn't have any snowmen stamps from the ATS store (hmmm, maybe Sweet November needs to do something about that next winter...) so I knew I would have to rely on my paper stash to fulfill the challenge. I have had this scrap of an Old Navy gift bag for years and I love the crazy snowman print on it so I put it to use once again. This time Penelope joined the scene and I like to think of her as having spent the afternoon building all of those snowmen and being oh-so-proud of her work. ;)

So why not take a look around your own stash and see what kind of snowman goodies you've got lying around just waiting to make it onto a card? Every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Ok, I've gotta hit the road... take it easy. :)

Your quick cards are still works of art!! I opened this page and went "wow" because of your awesome paper and color choices (I am so mad that the snowman paper is a gift bag and not DP that I can buy!) and of course your coloring (not to mention the stamp IS your own fabulous art this time!!) Love it! :-)Traci
