Snowy the snowman

Hey hoy! How are you doing? Spring is in full swing here - finally. Oh, how I missed it... I'm enjoying the warmer sunny days now. :) What about you? What's been going on where you live?

I haven't been doing much papercrafting lately. Or any other crafting at that matter. I did some beading, but that was pretty much it. I've been pretty busy with work and when I was not working I usually spent time with my family - we either went for a walk, for a daily trip somewhere... Time well spent, don't you think so? 

Anyways, I might show you what I made with beads some other time, today I want to show you another Christmas card I made last year, but haven't posted it online yet. 

I absolutely love CAS cards and I really admire people who can do them. I wish I was one of them, but I (almost) always end up adding several layers (and usually even quite a few embellishments *ooops*). This card is pretty much as CAS as I can do...

This adorable snowman is a SB stamp and he always makes me smile. Isn't he adorable?! I love using him on my Christmas/winter/holiday projects. I coloured this lil fella with polychromos and I added liquid applique on the white parts of his hat. I LOVE that stuff. It's so easy to use and gives such a nice fluffy touch. Love, love, love it.

I raised the "frame" I created with dies, snowman and sentiment on foam pads to give the card some dimension.

So much for today. Have a wonderful day! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:

Happy 40th birthday

Some time ago a friend of mine asked me if I could make a card for his co-worker. And he had some additional requests as well: he wanted me to use an image that would look like his co-worker (if possible), write the number "40", use some tulips and also use an image of the cake somewhere on the card. I wasn't sure if I could fulfill his requests (especially the one about the image looking like his friend), but I knew I wanted to try and do my best. It was definitely a challenge. 

I was most worried about finding the perfect image, but when I saw the photo of the birthday lady I knew I have the perfect image for the card. Later he told me that when the lady received the card her first words were "oh, that's me". :D So, score!

Here's the card I made...

The image I used is from Santoro. I coloured it to look like the birthday lady. :) Since this card was made some time ago I can't remember which image (from what company) I used for the cake. Sorry! I did the colouring wih pencils.

The gorgeous papers are from K&Co. I embellished the card with pearls and some gorgeous flowers from I am roses and from my stash.

So much for today. Have a lovely day! xx
