Summer Snowman

** Click here to see my birthday blog candy **

Hello friends.  It has been unbearably hot here ... in the low to mid-90's and the humidity is stifling.  I know I shouldn't complain because when this winter rolls around I'll be wishing for warm weather lol!  So I thought maybe I'd color something that might make me forget about the heat :)


This cute snowman is Summer Snowman by Meljen's Designs.  You can find this cool dude over at Whimsy Stamps.  I used my colored pencils to color this image.  Since this snowman doesn't require a lot of coloring, this card was fast and easy.  I added Glamour Dust to the snowman and melting snow.  Then I used Glossy Accents on the sunglasses and snow puddle.  I wrapped some twine around my card, added a button, and it was done!

Please be sure to stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to see the inspiring projects by the dt.  We also have a new challenge starting today and you can get all the details while you're there.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Paper:  BoBunny; Bazzill
Other:  Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, nestabilities, Glamour Dust, Glossy Accents, twine, button, MS border punch
