Well, all I can say is that I am glad today is over. I had a root canal this morning on a tooth that has been bothering me since March! Going to the dentist is one of my least favorite things in the entire world. I had two children with no drugs and I have to say going to the dentist is worse!! You may think I am exaggerating, and I may be just a bit, but going to the dentist certainly is not fun. They can never get me numb enough and today I had to have FIVE shots before I was finally numb enough for them to finish the job. I am sorry for my whining. I usually save my complaining for my hubby, but I think he is tired of hearing it today. LOL!
Anyway, onto my card. Well, actually I can't really say that it is my card because my friend Bren is the one who came up with the cute creation. I just shamelessly lifted her idea and made my own. (Thanks for the inspiration Bren!) Bren doesn't have a blog, but she does have some fantastic artwork posted on her website if you'd like to check it out here.
This cute little snowman is from CTMH's November stamp of the month called All Decked Out. It is a "build a snowman" type of set and is soooo cute. I also used some patterned paper from the Aspen collection along with some Bamboo and Twilight cardstock. I used a White Gel Pen and some Prisma Glitter on the tag and snow. I also added a few CTMH tiny Clear Sparkles to the snowflakes. The ear muffs are from CTMH's new Winter Cozy Mini-Medley pack. They are Twilight colored cordory brads. Aren't they fun? Bren's neighbor came up with that idea. Cute, huh?I colored his nose in with an Orange marker and shaded his body with a Grey Flannel marker. The only other things I used were a foam tool to add some ink around the edges and an edge distresser to rough up the edges a bit. The ribbon is retired CTMH Colonial White Organdy ribbon.
Well, that's about it for me. I am off to take some more pain killers. Nighty-night. *Ü*
