Well I brought out a few of my older stampin up favorites to make this card. The snowman and little girl is from a 1999 set titled "snow angels" and the sentiment is from a 1997 set titled "Let it Snow" it actually stamps that sentiment 3 times, so I just cut out one. I also fussy cut out the other images too, after I colored them. I added a bit of wink of stella to the snowman, and snowballs to make it shimmer a little bit. I always love the rosy checks and noses of little ones after they have been outside playing in the snow. I also fondly remember the kids coming in the house whipping off their snow caked mittens and boots, scarves, snow-pants, hats..etc. so they could sip some hot chocolate. Aww..so sweet. I have to tell ya a short story about the "snow angels set. I actually had bought it once upon a time when it first came out, and when my kiddos where younger. But then I made the mistake of selling it. Well folks I did that to one other set too, it was the one with the little boy and girl in Autumn, raking leaves. I found the Snow Angels on ebay and bought them for a second time.. I have not come across the Autumn set yet. But I know I will want that too. I should have not ever sold them. They remind me so much of my kids. And I suppose now that I'm older and they are grown I'm just very sentimental about it. Plus it was a lesson learned, Really think long and hard before selling your stampin up stamp sets. I'm going to submit this card to the challenge at: SUO Challenges Brrr. Baby it's cold Outside.
I've included a picture of our very well fed little fella here. He sure does love his corn.
