Week 3, Guest Designing, SSS Wednesday Challenge


Hi everyone!



Today I'm sharing a card for my third week of guest designing for the Simon Says Stamp, Wednesday challenge blog.
 

This week, our theme is Winter Inspiration and the design team have all been playing with Penny Black products. You don't have to use them but if you own some, we'd love to see them on your projects!

Jenn created a wonderful inspiration board for you to use to inspire your wintery creations.

 
When I found out the theme and the products we were to play with, I knew right away which stamp I was going to use. It's my all-time favorite snowman image. He's one of the stamps in Penny Black's, Jolly Friends clear set. I don't know what it is about this little guy but he brings a smile to my face every time I stamp and color him!


Maybe it's his fuzzy hat and scarf, or his adorable face, or his fun, chubby shape. Actually, I think it's all three! :)

The card is fairly self explanatory. I colored the image with Copics and added some softly stamped snowflakes on both the card base and white panel. 

As always, there is a generous, $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store for one lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

Now it's your turn! If you need some wintery inspiration, head on over to the Wednesday challenge blog and check out the amazing cards from the design team and then get creating!

I hope you're all well on your way to being ready for Christmas. Me? Well, let's just say I've got a ways to go yet but I keep reminding myself that it always gets done, right? My fingers are crossed!

Thanks for stopping by! ♥
