TECC41 - Snowy Jo

Happy Saturday everyone! First off I wanted to mention that I added the Followers Gadget to my sidebar, yes it took me a while before I jumped in and added it on but it's there now so if you are interested in following my blog I would be honored! The second thing I would like to mention is that I joined a new on line paper crafting site called Paper Planet, I know several of you already know about this great site because I've seen you there but for those of you who don't know about it, you may be interested in checking it out and joining in on the fun.
Today it's cold and dreary out side, its amazing how a just a few days ago all the leaves on our big maple tree in our back yard were still on the branches and it was in the 70s and now our tree is totally bare and its in the 40s, that's Michigan weather! The card for today is for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #41, I used the imaginisce Snowy Jo clear stamp for the image, colored him with my Copics then cut and embossed him using my square Nestabilites die and scalloped mat. For some reason this little snowman guy did not want to stamp out, after about five tries I finally got him. The Dashing designer Christmas paper is SU from two catalogs ago so I thought I would use some of it up and the colors I used are Real Red and Old Olive.

Have a great weekend!
