Super simple...

First off, Amy Tsuruta is the recipient of my Cuppie Cake Friday cards... Amy, please email me your snail mail!!

Now, this super simple card is being shown today because my mojo has gone missing, and I have nothing new to show you! Bonus... this counts for one of my Christmas Club cards for Paper Wings!!

He is pretty cute, though. I stamped the sentiment and snowman from Hello Snow with Noir Palette in and water-colored him with my Lyra AquaColor crayons & Niji waterbrush. I stamped the snowy swirl from Ready Set Snow in VersaMark on the Basic Blue background, and Seascape Palette on the White UltraSmooth panel.

Tip of the Day:
I used a cheater-knot on this card. I taped a small length of gingham ribbon on the back of the panel and then tied a knot after-the-fact. This way, you can slide the knot along the ribbon until it looks like it is in the right spot :)

I finished him off with a little bit o' Icicle Stickles on part of his hat and on the ground. Done!

What do you think?

So cute and simple. At least you made something with a missing mojo!
When I quit smoking I lost it for
2 years.
