Everything is cooler with you

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it's December already? I can't, eek! On one hand, I'm very excited, on the other... very unprepared... But hey, we'll have to go with the flow and make things work ;o)

We had a little hospital in the house over the last week and a bit (even the cat got sick!), each of us suffering from something different, but I am happy to report that we're all on the mend, and almost healthy. Woohoo! This means a little bit more time & strength for crafting, too! 

Today I am sharing with you a rather simple (but cute!) card I made with the "Cooler with you" card kit I won a while ago from MFT - loving the kit and I am sooooo happy that I won it. And to think that I wasn't too mad on the stampset when I first saw it - but how cute are these snowmen?!

I had a few challenges with colouring the images - my new batch of Crafter's Companion Neenah seems to be of a really poor quality & gives me headaches with loads of bleeding (gotta get the real deal from US soon, I guess...)... Either way, I went with it, helped myself with the white gel pen here and there (even doodled some patterns on the clothes), stuck with the images & the card concept till the end, and here it is --> I am actually quite happy with the end result :o)

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - Snowmen
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
SSS Work it Wednesday - Use Dies

Have a great week,

  1. Love everything about this card! The placement and use of blue are superb! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge! Awesome details and design! Super work!

  2. What an adorable card! I love those snowmen. And I love the background paper peeping through the windows. The doodles on the scarf and jumper are really fab. Hope you can get some results on your CC Neenah. I do love my 110lb Classic Crest I get from SSS, but even it can bleed sometimes. Xx

  3. Fabulous card, love those snowmen, thank you for joining us over on the ILP challenge this fortnight.
