Snowlady for a Red Hatter

Just had to make another snowlady for our Red Hat Society Christmas party today! Recently I was the winner of Peachy Keen face stamps at the Grand Opening Launch of Flaunt it Fridays. How great is that!! I was so excited to receive the stamps this week and anxious to play! Thank you again ladies!!
This is my first time to play with face stamps so I stamped several times to get the feel of everything and to determine size of the snowlady. I enjoy the results and now I may have to put a face on everything!

Card size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. An early Santa gift to myself is the Winter Frolic cartridge! I cut the snowman on page 29 using the regular cut and  shift on the layer feature at 3 1/2 inches. Cut the shadow in blue.
Cuttlebug folders are Sledding, Swiss Dots, and Divine Swirls. Martha Stewart punch is Swirling Lace.

My Favorite Santa Claus


Hello everyone! Glad you are here! I am sending a big "Thank You" to my new followers and to those who continue to encourage me with your visits!!
This week at Jitterbuggin' "Here Comes Santa Claus", the theme is to add a Santa to our card. No sketch and no secondary requirements! I chose my favorite Cricut Santa Claus which is the cut from Christmas Noel. He is cut 3 3/4 inches on regular cut and shift. The cane and lantern are cut at same size. I love the Santa Claus font! It is also from the same cartridge and is cut at 3/4 inch. Choosing paper always takes awhile for me---maybe I should not have a room full and it would be easier! My paper selection for the background of the card is from K&Company Susan Winget Specialty Paper. I chose one section of the beautiful sheet of paper and cut it! Yikes, I hated to cut it, but I love it now as the background on the card! For a simple accent I added an EK corner punch to the portion of the paper behind Santa.

Hope you enjoy Santa Claus! Thanks for your comments!
