Sending hugs your way...

Hey there!

Even though the Chilliezgraphy by Pei range of stamps at Purple Onion Designs is intended for Christmas card making, there are a few that can work for more generic winter cards as well. This adorable Tofu and the Snowman image is one of those more versatile stamps and I've inked it up for my card today. This fuzzy wuzzy kitty is so cute, hugging his newly made snowman friend. In the background I stamped the Home Sweet Home Horizon to help set the scene. I did sketch the distant mountains in by hand as well as the path winding across the card front right to the front stoop of the house to add even more depth to this winter story. The sentiment is an older one that I couldn't find in the shop anymore but I thought it worked perfectly on this card.  :)
