SUO Challenge 191~Let it SNOW ~Snow Angels

 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. 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.

  1. What a cute set of snowmen! You did such a great job of coloring them! I know what you mean by getting rid of thing and then wanting them back. This is probably why Joe calls me a pack-rat! It's nice to have good memories - cherish them!
