Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. Hope you are all having a great week so far.
Tonight's card is one that I made for the Friday Mashup challenge. The challenge was to use snowmen. Well... I can never resist a snowman. As I needed so quick and easy cards, that were post office friendly, I decided to create another hybrid card. I had seen this fabulous little snowman in the Holiday Blitz stamp brush set. I colored him in Not Quite Navy and then printed him out with a sentiment. All that was left to do after that was add some bling and some sparkle. Now, y'all know that I couldn't just leave him as he was :-)
Isn't he the cutest? I love the fact that you can scale him to any size in order to fit your card. I mixed up basic rhinestones and basic pearls where the snowflakes are on the original printed image. I then ran some glimmer paper through my big shot with my snowflake die, stuck it down... and the card was good to go. I love it on the Not Quite Navy base. TIP: When using the glimmer paper for your big shot or punch, remember to turn the paper over and tear off the plasticy backing that is on the paper. This makes it much easier to go through your big shot.
Now, don't forget to pop along to the Mashup and check out the fabulous design team and submission cards. I know you will find something to inspire you.
Buzbee has been a buzzy... I mean busy little elf and has drawn a name form the blog post here. The lucky winner of the Jaydee give away - glimmer paper is ......
Lizzie Hernandez...... Lizzie please email me your snail mail address and I will get your glimmer paper in the post to you.
So... before Buzbee lets you know what other wonderful goodies you can win on the blog post tonight, let's take a look at what he has been up to.
Well, he was missing for quite a while. I couldn't find him, then I heard this munch, munch, mmmmm, yummy, munch, munch coming from the fridge. Ah. ha! Well, I have to say that he has good taste in goodies. Panetone is a traditional Italian cake and this one is particularly scrumptious. It has a rich chocolate on the outside and lovely gooey custard in the middle. So... he knew what he was doing! Can you believe that he even managed to eat it without getting custard on his face :-)
So.... what goodies can you win tonight? Well, if more than 12 of you leave a special comment on this blog post, Buzbee and Bilbo will draw one name to win

On a personal note:
I am so glad that the stories of Buzbee are being enjoyed by the kiddies. That makes my day. This all started with Rach! Oh, and Beverly, yep.... I was a great story teller as a child. I still have an overactive imagination, and all I need is a little nudge from someone like Rachel and I am off and running :-)
Tomorrow is a HUGE day for us. Tomorrow they begin to dig the "hole", or more correctly, the foundations, for our new home. We are so excited and cannot wait to get out to see it next week. Lou is out of town, as usual, so is missing this major milestone, so we will be driving up as soon as he is back. Of course, I will take photos and post them for you :-)
As always, thank you for visiting my little area of the stamping blogosphere. Your visits, your support and your comments are always very much appreciated.
Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
