Some Frosty Wishes


The Haunted Design House Challenge(HDH149) is "Bare Bones" which means you can't use any kind of embellishment that sticks up. So no ribbon, pearls, gems, flowers, googly eyes, pins, etc. For some reason this kind of challenge scares me! I was thinking of skipping the challenge, but I decided to the plunge and use my new Simply Betty Rio and Frosty image. I love snowpeople (I think it comes from living somewhere where snow is an oddity), so when I saw this image I had to buy it. I put off my purchase until I finished a few more coloring classes. I can't wait until the end of the class and then I will feel a bit better (actually I think it will take another few courses to do that, but at least I am moving forward). Thankfully, Simply Betty shows us how the images can look colored so I at least knew where to put the shadows. LOL!

Hugz and Happy Labor Day (wish it was frosty too).

  10. Oh, a snowperson..you know how I love them. I was just talking to hubby last night about winter and wondering if we would have snow this year...a big one. We had a big one year before last. Just have to wait and see as the big ones don't come here very often. I'm thinking you probably never get any or very little, anyway. Your card is a real cutie.
