YNS: Happy Holidays!


It's time for another Your Next Stamp challenge! This week not only do we have a fun challenge for you but we are also previewing some brand new digital images! :D The YNS designers have come up with some fantastic Christmas images this month and you are definitely going to want them! As soon as I saw this snowman I fell in love with him and knew he needed to be printed out immediately! I must admit that I have a slight obsession with snowmen! Haha!

For this week's challenge, Simonne has challenged us to create a non-traditional Christmas card which meant we were not allowed to use the usual reds and greens! This new Mind's Eye paper was perfect for the challenge! I pulled my color scheme from it and then used my Copics to color in my snowman. For my layout I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge as well!

So do you want to see what I did this weekend? My husband and I spent as much time together as we could (especially since he had to leave again this week) so we decided to spend our Saturday outside playing in the snow and building a snowman! :D It was so much fun! Here is a picture of our finished product!

I love your card!! It is a perfect winter, thinking of you card or Christmas.
Your snowman reminds me of the one snowman I built when I was a kid. We didn't have much snow but I was determined. He ended up being only about a foot tall but I named him George. Thanks for bringing back a great memory!!!
