Third Day with....

.....Jill Foster Inspired by.....blog.  Honestly, I have had such a gas being part of this week with Jill.  It really is like Christmas morning each day when I wake up!  Christmas for an (almost) 50 year old hehehe!  The first thing I do when I wake up this week is to turn over and grab my ipad to see if Jill has posted yet and to see what card she might have picked out!  I love that she picked out the one she did today.....it is a FAVE stamp of mine from LaBlanche and a really fun one to color....I did it with copics.  And how fun is Jill's interpretation?  Right?  Using fun, mod little Mimi!  Anyways, if you have time pop over to Jill's blog to check out the two cards.

Then, I have  a card for today.....I had a little time yesterday to craft and was able to color two images.  The first one I was able to finish into a card.  It's Nippy..... Nippy the Snowman by Whippersnapper Designs to be precise.  How could I not buy a stamp called Nippy the Snowman?  Thank goodness the image is as cute as the name!  Anyways, just a fun little "man" to make a fun little card with.  I always like snowman images as they can be totally "decked" out in holiday colors and therefore used for Christmas cards or, in this card's case, my little frigid friend can be outfitted in more "stylin' colors and used for an all purpose winter greeting!  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations...and, now that I look more closely at it I believe I stamped it crookedly.....oh well, handmade right!?!  And, heeeere's Nippy!



I also wanted to give the link out for the stamp on the card that Jill Foster highlighted on her blog yesterday.  It was a stamp by Outlines Rubber Stamp Co and I was asked about it so here is the link.

Hi Shelia,
Nippy looks gorgeous. Love the bright colours you chose for him:)

The cardstock you asked me about is 350gsm from my local market. It doesn't have a branded name.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas. Wishing you and your family - All the best for 2012 x

I've enjoyed each day so far, Sheila! Loving both yours and Jill's cards!

Adorable image here - fun card! - I'm one of those cardmakers who very rarely stamps a sentiment straight! :)

LOVE this snowman! Your color choices are wonderful, as always! Hugs, hugs, and MORE hugs!

What a cute design, Sheila! Love the design and ribbon details! Your gorgeous birthday card finally arrived yesterday. It took 19 days to get here! The postal delivery has gone back to the dinosaur days, that's for sure! Thank you so much for thinking of me on my birthday. I wish you and family a Happy Healthy 2012! Big hugs to you!
