A {Fresh Snow} Sketch For You To Try

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Are you sick of the leftovers yet? Tell the fam that today you just want to order a pizza and be done with it! Shelbie and I made our annual midnight run to Garden Ridge (just because we can) and picked up a few Christmas essentials including wrapping paper (it's pink and I haven't showed it to Eric yet, so shhhhhhh!!) and the cutest glass Raggedy Ann ornament (I add a new one every year). Stamping time has been in short supply here lately (mainly because I am tired), but I did manage to get Jen's Sketch For You To Try done up here. I used the new set from Storage Units, Ink and More called Snow Day. I just love this little sledding guy! He reminds me of Charlie Brown, so I hope he's not doomed to smack into a tree on the way down his hill--poor guy, if it weren't for bad luck, he wouldn't have any at all! Who feels like Charlie Brown today? Give yourself a hug for me!

We hope to entice you to play along with us by taking you on a little blog tour today! Go check out Shannan, Carole, Amy R., and Amy S. and then create your own SFYTT (your favorite keyword) and post it to SCS so we can be so lucky to see what you've come up with!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I have yet to acquire the Spellbinder's mat for dry embossing the edges of a nestability shape. I experimented and came up with a solution for in the meantime until I can get a mat: A plate, B plate, Nestability with shape still attached, 2 layers of fun foam (kid's craft foam), and 2-3 pieces of cardstock, B plate. It is not as embossed as I'd like it, but it will work for now.

Stamps: Snow Day (Storage Units, Ink and More)
Paper: Blues and Green Cardstock (Core'dinations), Papertrey White, DP (My Favorite Things)
Ink: Palette Noir (Superior)
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Mini Scallop Scissors, Paper Piercer/Mat Pack, White Square Brads, Spiral Clip, Various Ribbon, Dimensionals, Copic/Prismacolor Markers, Spirit White Glitter Glue (Creative Cafe)


  1. Fabulous card! Love the bright colours!

  2. Super cute, Sus! Hey...I have an extra mat...want it?

  3. SUCH cuteness, Susie-Q! I love that fun, bright color combo!!! And thanks sooooo much for the email you sent re: photo tips. I'm going to have to break down and learn photoshop... *sigh* I think I've done all I can do with iPhoto. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a great rest of your holiday weekend, buddy. :)

  4. Cute card!

    Your task for this week is to print out the Hobby Lobby coupon for 40% off and go to Hobby Lobby and buy yourself an embossing mat. Yes, they sell them there and with the coupon it will be cheap. :) LOL


  5. That is super cute!! Bright and cheery!!

    I heard that a good ole computer mouse pad would work instead of the foam stuff. Plus it's a PITA to use that mat anyway! LOL...

    Good luck!

  6. hey suzie I have another recipe for embossing w/out the mats (I have them but am too lazy to use 'em!). Here's my sandwich: A plate, B plate, 2 pieces SCRAP cardstock, image, nestie, C plate

    The scrap cardstock WILL get cut w/ your image, I often fold up a scrap of regular paper into fourths or use an envelope of junk mail under there... I think it helps having the "fluff" behind the image rather than on top... HTH!

  7. This is so cute! I love the fun, bright colors! Sweet image too!

  8. To Cute! Love the ribbon's and paper piercing...YUM'O!! Smiles :)
