The Unknown Snowman - MYSTERY SOLVED!

Do you know who this cutie belongs too? I've searched every internet store and stamp site... and even eBay. I don't know who he is!!! He must be suffering from Amnesia because he can't tell me either. LOL!

Updated: This image is from Sunshine Designs - The Stamp Barn. Thanks leibetty!

I tried another Kittie bow. I've discovered that it's harder working with a stiffer grosgrain with a width of 3/8". This is a double bow. I actually did get the triple bow to work, but it was way too overwhelming on this card.

Paper: green galore, ballet blue, real red DSP, white
Ink: black. ballet blue, real red
Accessories: ribbon, Copic markers, circle punches, dimensionals

Sassy & Seasonal with a Kittie Bow

On the Rubbernecker blog, Kittie747 has some tutorials on ribbon ties and bows. Well, I attempted the triple bow. Somehow I ended up with a double bow! LOL! Good thing I didn't try a double, I would have ended up with an ordinary bow!

I also made this card for the 8th day of Christmas challenges on Paper Craft Planet.

22 Days until Christmas!

Poor Fluffles. How many years has this happened to him? Hope he doesn't get coal again this year!

Stamps: Fluffles - Stampendous

Ink: black
Accessories: Copic markers, real red SU marker, Martha Stewart branch punch, ribbon, snowflake brads, crop-o-dile for the centers of the snowflake brads, dimensionals
Challenge: SC205

I've received many nice and cute comments today on SCS about this card. But 2 people just cracked me up! They said they know some people who should get this card. I hadn't thought of that. I just think it's cute. I'm an owner of 2 cats. I know, they own me. But the gray one is always getting into mischief. So this image reminds me of her, Princess. I have some scrapbook pages of her on my blog. It can be found on the side bar in categories: scrapbook.

I'll probably try another one later. At this point, I'm not going to bed. I have to get DS up for school in an hour!!! I couldn't help it. I had so many creative thoughts going through my for all my blogs... mostly my teacher one. They have become a full time job! LOL!

New Verve set and a Mojo Monday Sketch

I used 2 techniques on the snowman: paper piecing and paper tole. The middle and top are popped up on dimensionals and the hat is popped up twice on dimensionals.

I only glanced at the sketch and went back to get the keyword.... oops. We were to embrace the white space and it's for a contest. So, I just might be using this sketch again. :)

Ink: black, ruby red, pumpkin pie
Accessories: SU markers, Martha Stewart lace edge punch, riding hood red taffeta ribbon, circle, oval, & designer label SU punches, dimensionals
