Fiddling Around with a Snowman

Unfortunately we don;t have any snow yet but one of my cards tonight is wishful thinking for some snow. Maybe I shouldn't be wishing for snow because by January I'll be really tired of it. LOL! Okay,  I'll refrain from complaining about no snow or too much snow. Is there ever a happy medium?

My card uses the sentiment reflection technique. I really had to practice to get this right and ruined several pieces of paper before getting anything that looked okay. The image is from Designed 2 Delight and was free this month if you are playing along with the progressive challenge. Isn't the snowman adorable. I colored with Bic Markers and added a little dimension with puff paint on the hat and sleeves. I used Spellbinders ovals and lots of scraps for layers on the card. To finish off I added some faux stitching.

I am entering this card in these challenges:
My second card tonight is a birthday card.

The image is a pre-colored digi from Doodle Pantry Violin Color Stamp Set. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. The borders are new dies that I got from My Favorite Things. I used a Spellbinder ribbon tag die for the sentiment and add the ribbon as embellishment. I really like this one!

I'm entering these challenges:
 Hope your week is going well. We're on the downside of the week. I'm off on Friday to be at the hospital for my DH's surgery so hoping all things go well. Take care! I'll be back soon!

Two wonderful cards. I've never tried reflection and yours is pretty dog gone cool. The second card is just as wonderful. I never thought of using a cello/volin, whatever to represent age......brilliant!!!! I also love your color choices and papers and the new dies you used. I'm still sick, but your cards put a smile on my face.

Two fabulous cards! The birthday card is gorgeous, but since I'm commenting from CSAYL I have to focus on the snowman card which is super cute!! Love the reflection of the sentiment. I don't think I've ever seen that before and it looks really cool. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.

Your snowman is particularly lovely and I think your reflection stamping came out a treat. Great idea.

Thanks for playing along at The Cuttlebug Spot this week.
