After a nice round of holiday visiting yesterday I'm ready to get a new week started. I'm especially excited because I'll be going to see the new Hobbit movie on one of my days off... I can't wait! :)
So I snagged this cute snowman stamp from MFT last week along with this sheet of paper by Echo Park and I think they are a match made in stamping heaven. Growing up with birch trees in the yard has left me with a nostalgic soft spot for anything with a birch print pattern on it. As for this Happy Heart Snowman, I wanted to try creating the look of a knit pillow with that heart he is holding. It didn't turn out as great as I had hoped it would but it did give me an idea of what I need to do the next time I try this technique. Even after all this time it still comes down to practice, practice, practice!
Ok, time for some cocoa and then off to work.
