My Favourite Snowman


I've got quite a few snowman stamps (haven't we all?), but this one is my favourite.  I love the sketchiness of the image, the expression on his face, and the movement of him trying to catch his hat in the wind.  And what about those mittens joined with cord?  Hands up who had a set of those threaded through the sleeves of your winter coat when you were a child? Hands up who still has?

The Black Tie challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is Marina Mist and Basic Black, together with a snowman for dessert.


The new challenge on the block is Addicted to CAS, and the theme for their first challenge is:
The snowman image is from Printworks, and the sentiment is from Paper Salon.

  1. Ah, I live in a country where those strings are now considered a strangulation risk (as are scarves), so we clip our children's mittens to their coats. I do love this image - the movement is wonderful! Love the soft blue sponging around him, as well!

  8. Such a sweetie, Shirley, and the hints of blue are perfect! Strings attached ... I wish ...it'd mean the eclectic mismatched mitten/glove look could be consigned to the fashion faux pas archive! Anita in France :)
