When I moved here in the mountains, the first thing I did when I saw snow was build a snowman. Oh, what fun that was. Now, in old age, I still love a good snow. And maybe this year I will again erect a man of snow. The card focuses on the subtle shades of the Stampin' Up!'s Snowflake splendor patterned paper. I added the soft and subtly stamped snowman from the Snow Wonder stamp set and popped him up to give him definition.

I discovered some small pieces of patterned paper I love even though it has been discontinued. I decided to use the daisy punch to create an accent. My little dog is peeking out to say hello. I do enjoy going back to using old favorites like the daisy paper and the cute dog stamp I acquired a couple of years ago. Too often I get caught up with using my newer supplies. Oldies, but goodies rock!
