A Sketch for a cute Snowman…….

I’m deep into Christmas cards and found a  sketch from Freshly Made Sketches that I just had to try and I knew I had a leftover snowman from last year’s card making and it was on my table. The snowman is one of four images from Sunshine Designs, which was owned by The Stamp Barn and was The Frogs Whiskers, still an Ontario business. Now you tell me if this isn’t the cutest snowman you ever saw, you can never have too many snowman stamps.
The pink I used was a leftover 4 1/4 X 11 piece, I die cut the scallop and used the remainder for the layer and the borders on the patterned paper that is probably 3 years old. the snowflake is out of my stash I’m sure it is 4 or more years old. So I’m really “shopping my stash”.
Challenges I am entering this in:
Freshly Made Sketches ends Monday at noon.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge ….anything goes
Shopping our Stash  Challenge # 129 Holiday or Winter end Monday Dec. 9TH.
So exciting to have three challenges to enter, even thought the sketch challenge ends there will be another up real quick, but I will be using this sketch again. It is so easy to enter Shopping Our Stash as it’s a great way to use up leftovers like I did with the Snowman,
Thanks for stopping by today and come back again real soon. The Cheerful Stamp Pad and Clear it Out Tuesday are coming up Monday and Tuesday. Hope to see you enter one of the challenge.

You are a pro at using up leftover pieces........collecting them too! The pink is nice instead of the traditionally used blue. Unique and ornate as always. Good job :)
