Big Hugs Card

I haven't done a card workshop in months because I've been so overwhelmed with being a foster mom, but I finally decided to take the plunge and do another workshop. Since I have soooo many paper packs that are only half used, I thought it would be fun to do a hodgepodge workshop to use up some old paper. Here's my first card, using patterned paper from Wonderland. I paired it up with some new {to me} stamp sets that I purchased during CTMH's Deal of the Decade sale in December. The snowmen from Flakey Friends stamp set have been calling out to me since they first appeared in a CTMH idea book, but I couldn't justify purchasing them since I live in a snow-free zone. I finally broke down and got the set, and I'm so glad I did because the cuteness level is off the charts!

Not living in snow country is the perfect reason to have snow stamps! I always like blue paired with brown. You do neat work. Thanks for sharing with Heart 2 Heart Challenges.
