My Precious Moments....

The challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month is Snowmen, Snow Woman, Snow People! I fell in love with this Precious Moments stamp many years ago and have had it stored safely just waiting for the right moment to color. That definitely sounds better than: I've had it for years and never got around to coloring it.

I colored her with Copics and used a bit of glitter on the snow. The three gingerbread men are buttons with the backs cut off. I used 2 pieces of lace on this card, layered, to give the gathered lace a nice finished look. The diecut around the image and around the sentiment are Nestabilities.

The sponsor for this month's challenge is My Mums Craft Shop who is donating £10!  And the gals at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have posted beautiful cards that will inspire you to think of winter. (Well, I hope you can think of winter since I can't living in a place where it's 115+ right now and the challenge this week for me was just looking at this little girl's winter coat and not sweating.)

Thanks for coming by my blog and let's see those "Snowmen, Snow Woman, Snow People" cards!


This card has been entered in the following challenges: A Little Bit Crafty, Creative Creations, Papertake Weekly,  Creative Fingers, Stamp and Create


  1. This snowman must be "freeze dried", as he doesn't seem to be melted even around the edges - hahaha! Sarah Kay has some of the cutest stamps and I'm glad you were finally able to dust this one off. Wonderful creation, as always, Gail !!

  2. This sweet image reminds me of books I had when I was a little girl and I love the gingerbread theme in the background! It's been a little bit cooler here today, around 21 degrees - I don't think I'd cope in the Arizona heat! Hugs, Tracey xx
