"I Wonder", Said the Snowman!

"Frosty, the Snowman, is a fairy-tale they say, he was made of snow, but the children know, how he came to life one day!".....Today, I just have a quickie post for you as it's such a busy week with new releases and challenges!! Verve's release is coming up on Monday, November 10th, so here's a little sneak peek of a couple of the stamp sets coming your way! Do snowmen make your heart "melt" like they do mine? I have just always loved them, so when I saw this cute little snowman looking up at me with that certain "wonderment" in his eyes, I could not wait to smush that cute little face into an inkpad and and make him come to life. Julee definitely had the magic turned on when she came up with this set, Snow Wonderful, and another set that coordinates beautifully with it called Snowflake Splendor. Come on and walk in our "Winter Wonderland" VERVE-style as we Deck the Halls here on the Verve blog!! Sneak peeks started yesterday and go on through the end of the week---don't miss them! I'm getting into the holiday spirit (whether Eric likes it or not)!!!

Don't miss the Verve Release Party coming this Sunday night from 8-10 PM EASTERN.
I'll be there! Will you?

TIP: When sewing on a card, have the ends stop and start "under" where another element will be placed. However, if it HAS to show, don't just wrap the threads to the back over the top. It's super fast and easy to pull the bobbin thread on the backside, and the top thread will automatically make a little loop. Pull it out and bring both ends of your thread to the back and tape them down for a clean finished look to the front of your card. Make sense?
