Snowy Wishes

Today's card uses this week's color challenge over at SCS. I just love this Inkadinkadoo snowman and wanted to make a fun card with him. The circles are made with my new Nestabilities dies, which I just love. In fact, taking Shannan's advice that shopping would cheer me up, I just ordered the ovals to add to my circles collection. (LOL! As if I needed an excuse to buy more stamping stuff! Thanks Shannan!) :)

Thanks for all the kind words yesterday about Mark being gone. I did end up having a really fun night stamping over at Lila's. I got to play with Copics for the first time, and with the new Spica glitter pens. Unfortunately for my pocket book I loved them both. Lila and her house full of the coolest stamping gadgets and gizmos is quite the enabler! Oh, and I got to talk to Mark on the phone for a while when I got home and he promised to take me to the Melting Pot (my favorite fondue restaurant) to celebrate once he gets back into town.

  1. no, no, more enabling! Now that you have Nestabilities, I want them and I can't afford them right now!!!!! I've heard nothing but great things about them. Are you planning on selling them at Verve?

    Love the snowman card, he's adorable!


  2. Hehe. I was wondering the same thing as Amy. Are you planning on selling Nestablitites or Copics at Verve? I like that heavily layered sentiment on your card. Really cute. Glad you got to hang with Lila.

  3. So glad your shopping made you feel better? And I'd love some Nestabilities! I'm so jealous.

  4. Oooh, love the BG on this card...subtle yet striking!

    I find I don't use my nestabilities that much...maybe because I can't emboss with them yet...only cut. And I don't have the scallop ones, only the plain.

    Now copics are another thing...I'm THIS CLOSE to ordering the whole bunch!

    Glad you had fun at Lila's. Wish someone I knew who,liked to stamp lived near me...*pout*

  5. So glad you had fun! And you have the Melting Pot to look forward to! LUCKY YOU! :) Beautiful card, Julee. . .love that snowman!

  6. I am so glad you had fun with your friend. I think blogging enables me...when I find all these neat things like nestabilities...and cat's pj stamps from you...(LOL)
    Good to know mark is taking you to the Melting Pot. I love that place. My traditional birthday dinner every year is fondue. We do it at home, because me kids think it is too cool. Have a fantastic weekend. chris
