Blue snowman

Blue snowman . . . doesn't mean he's feeling blue, since he's got a very big smile!!  I decided to keep the main focus on this cutie-patootie, which is a Penny Black stamp - yes, the original wood held stamp with the rubber image, which I think  still gives one the clearest, sharpest image, so have kept the design simple and clean.   I used a new embossing folder for the background, which I think set it off just right.   Then a bit of stickles glitz to his hat and voila - instant cuteness!
I will enter this into the following:

Penny Black and More - embossing folder
Penny Black Friends - new (embossing folder)
7 Kids - AG + let it snow
Completely Christmas - AG + make it cute
Crafter's Cafe - keep it simple

Papertake Weekly - something new (embossing folder)
Send A Smile 4 Kids - AG 4 kids


  1. Adorable card, Lillian, love your blue snowman. And I agree that wood mounted, red rubber stamps are the best - have lots in my collection! You can never have enough rubber stamps, can you? :D

  2. Such a cute card! Love the embossing and of course the cute stamp. My hubby bought this stamp for me when I couldn't decide which one to choose. This was a while ago when the (sort of) local stamping store was still open. It is one of my favorite PB stamps too.
    So happy you played along with us at Penny Black and More. Don't forget you can enter up to 3 times!
