I know that most of the country is probably fed up with all the snow we've been having, but most of the snow has narrowly missed my area. I really wanted to create a scrapbook layout show casing the snowman building skills of my son and I... which basically amounts to NONE! LOL But we haven't gotten enough snow for snowman building! Or snowball fights or sledding either! We did get quite a bit of ice last week which made sledding interesting & fun... and painful especially if you're not wearing gloves! LOL but we need snow!!! Just not too much... please & thank you! :)
This is one of the two cards I created. That snowman is from an image card from Fancy Pants Design's Hot Chocolate collection. It was a little large for an A2 card so I had to crop it a little. I added some inking along the edges and paired it with a sentiment from PTI's Say it Style stamp set. I rearranged my craft room a little and made room on my table for my sewing machine so I added some stitching. When I add stitching to my paper crafts I usually do it by hand. It's a little tricky with the machine because you have to adjust the stitch tension & stitch length to work well with different paper thicknesses, but I think once I figure that out I'll do better =)

I used the zig zag stitch on this card, I think it turned out a little better =) I normally reach for winter blues or Christmas reds when creating snowman cards but I chose more of a spring theme this time.
