Sweet & Simple Snowman Card

Hello & Happy Monday!

It's a snow day here!
My hubby was up very early this morning to head to work before the weather got bad.
Most of the plant has off today except for him & his mechanics because they are doing a big project and the power will be off awhile. I just hope he makes it home alright later this evening.

I am feeling a bit better everyday!
Who knew an infection like this could knock you down so fast!
I slept so much the last few days and haven't done much of anything.
Today is my cleaning day so we will see how much I get done.

I've got a cute Christmas card to share today that the stamp girls made last week.
This one was everyone's favorite!

This is the stamp set we used....definitely an oldie but a goodie!
I got it off Ebay several years ago and I think it's the first time I inked it up!

I actually made this card designed around that pretty Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon!
It's gorgeous and ties a nice bow!
Everything on this card is retired except the ribbon and cardstock.
I love using the older stuff and giving it new life again!

Card Details:

Stamps: Sweet & Simple Salutations (retired)
Ink: Memento Black, Seaside Spray & Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends
Cardstock: Seaside Spray, Whisper White
Accessories: Winter Wonder EF (retired), Circle Layering Framelits, Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon, Glue Dots, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Stamperatus, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I did not take a picture of the inside but we used a saying from the A Wish For Everything stamp set and used the Stamparatus for perfect placement!
The girls are really getting the hang of using it!

My thoughts today...

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

So happy you're feeling better! I LOVE your little snowman....I wish they would have more stamps like these in the current catalog...they're my favorite style!
Only a couple little snowflakes sad!

The embossing beneath really spotlights your sweet snowman. Glad you are on the mend. We had icy stuff but now it is just rain.

I have this embossing folder and it's so large I often have trouble figuring out how to use it, but your idea is brilliant to put an image in the center! That's a great stamp set and you'll be glad to have it through the years! Sometimes the older ones are the best ones :) Such a sweet card with those pretty blue colors and ribbon. So glad you're feeling better too. I just got a call from a friend who recently got out of the hospital after spending 5 days there. She developed a UTI, was given antibiotics that were not strong enough and it went into her kidneys, and she wound up with Sepsis on top of it all. She's still slowly recovering and not doing well at all, so you're lucky you were treated right away! Get better soon, Christmas is coming!
