More snowmen

Hi all! Thanks to those of you who hopped with us on the Caring Hearts Blog Hop. There was so much inspiration along the way, and tons of wonderful ideas for holiday cards.

Remember that you have until Wednesday, October 27th to comment here as well as all the blogs on the hop to be eligible for some great prizes from great sponsors!


Just sharing a few more snowmen cards using Jane's Snowman and Bird. I kept it simple this time so I didn't have to use my sewing machine. The Nestabilities Label shape was embossed with a "snow" embossing folder, and I even flipped the snowman so he's facing to the left. Gotta love that about digis!

And here's another share of a true story. Sad, but true.

I opened up a new Crate Paper kit and was going through the papers, checking out the designs. The kit included two sheets of stickers--one of them a sheet of border trims.


I looked at the trimming. Cute designs, but why did they put French words on them? I took some French in high school and remembered that "mon" means "my". But what is "mous"? Hmmm........

I stared at it for a good minute or so.....wondering.....pondering.....
AND THEN I TURNED IT 180°.


Ohhhhhh...it says  SNOW!!
Hope you're all having a great week so far. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. O Donna! Great snowmen. Love that embossing folder!
    LOL!! Thanks so much for the laugh this morning. I think you had it right the lights looks so much better facing down. I think they got the snow words upside down. hahaha. Have a fabulous day! Hugs,

  14. Beautiful snowmen cards, love it when you do simple and it always looks cute!! I laughed so hard about your 'mous' story! I had a moment as well the other day...sad as well....saw a light on in my car when I turned off the engine...called my car dealer and said something is wrong, they said that light is supposed to be on when you exit car...duh! Obviously, my brain eludes me at times.
