Edwin's Snowman

Happy New Year's to everyone!  Wishing you all a fun and fabulous year to come!!!

For the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge for January 2011, Design Team member Cheryl Rowley has come up with a fun recipe challenge for us.  Click HERE to find out all the details.  You too can join in on the challenge and have a chance at free Magnolia stamps!!!

One of the parts of the recipe was using 3 pattern papers.  That was a little different for me, but luckily Mindy Baxter had sent me a Basic Grey Jovial Paper Pad, I had some wonderful pattern papers to use that went so nicely together!  She also sent the white flowers that went well with the paper too!  Thanks Mindy!!!

I've used Edwin's Snowman stamp, Miss You stamp and the Poinsettia DooHickey Die from Magnolia-licious.  Please check with Diana about Edwin's Snowman, it is from the Winter/Christmas 2007 Collection.

Water colored the Snowman with Distress Inks and paper pieced his scarf.  Cut out the ovals with a Spellbinders die, added some Stickles for a little glitz, some flowers, ribbon, cording and a charm.  Isn't this a different one using flowers with a snowman???!!!!  :)

Enjoy every day!!!

You know Patti Jo, being an artist, you can do anything you want to do.. if it looks good, and makes you feel good, then it is okay... of course I love your card, the Edwin came out so cute and the pp are so adorable not to say the flowers are so adorable with the whole setting.. were made for the card... A great card and you pulled it off just great.. we just have to learn to sit back and go with the flow and learn to please ourselves more... Happy New Year Patti Jo and may you have a great year with much happiness and good health.
Love and hugs, Jean

Oh, Patti Jo, this is just lovely! I love the color scheme and the patterned papers you chose. That little tuch of sparkle is perfect, too. It is just rich with details. I love it!

Hi Patti Jo!
Now this certainly is different for you. It worked just fine. I think I will have to try this challenge. Three patterned papers sure is out of my comfort zone. If you can do it so can I.
I liked the idea of having that striped paper under the ribbon. Nice touch. The flowers look great and love the DooHickey Poinsettia die in this color. Just goes to show that it doesn't need to be used for Christmas cards only. Super job as always my friend.
Hugs Maz
