My Coolest Friend...

Hello~

**I am so honored that my coolest friend snowman card was selected at the Winner at Tuesday Morning Sketches on 12/17/12! Thank You so much ladies!!**

I am back with a fun little card today with the intention of using as one of my Thank You notes. 

I started this card by adding the adorable tree patterned paper by My Mind's Eye to my card base. I then  die-cut my ovals to stage as my base for my darling little snowman which has been fussy cut and paper-pieced and adhered in some glittery snowy hills! :-) Using Versamark Ink, I randomly stamped some snowflakes in the background.

A length of white seam binding was wrapped around the card front and tied in a fussy bow embellished with a pink button, twine and some aqua jingle bells.  Two different snowflakes were die-cut and stacked adding a pink button to the center. My coolest friend sentiment was stamped, cut, and adhered in a fun scattered way if you will.

Inspiration for my card was found at Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch plus non-tradional Christmas Colors.
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Snowman fun in non-tradional Colors

The Ribbon Girls - Ho Ho Ho Christmas

I Just wanted to say a big thank you to the gals at City Crafter who awarded this card with their City Crafter Spotlight Artist. 

I hope you enjoyed my fun little card today. 
Hope you have a fantastic Friday!
~Tammy~
