Color Throwdown Snowman Peeps

Hi Friends

Today I made this card for the Color Throwdown.  The challenge this week is to use a pale or lime green, blue, kraft and grey.  I immediately thought of flowers ... no!!  No more flowers until springtime.  I'm really in the mood for Fall/Christmas and the colors and decorations that are associated with those seasons... pretty much done with the heat in SoCal.  You can click here to see what others have done.

I love the colors barbara chose and decided to go with a Penny Black snow family stamp ... I think her snowmen are the cutest around.  I also dug out some retired SU Christmas dsp ... it's so "retired" I don't even have the packaging anymore so can't tell you the name of it.  I only have a wee bit left.  Well, here's my card...

Of course, you knew my assistant, Bailey, would have to join in the fun, right?  Of course!  There's nothing particularly complicated about this card.  The only thing I did, other than coloring with my copics, was to paper piece their scarves.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Warm Words (also retired).  I kept the layout simple (my new goal) and just added a bit of silver ribbon and a silver glimmer snowflake for some sparkle.  I hope you like it.

Thanks so much for the visit.  I appreciate all your comments too, thanks!



  1. ADORABLE! Great coloring and paper piecing! And what a beautiful kitty... I want to wrap my arms around him/her!

  2. Thanks Tammy, I love those snowpeeps. And yes, our little boy is very huggable until he feels 'it's enough'. He's my official assistant ... there is a little fur on each of my cards ... stuck to the adhesive

  3. These are some sweet snowpeeps, Pat! Love the soft colors and the simple layout with the sparkly snowflake!

  4. Oh, this is so sweet! Love the super cute image... the paper pieced scarfs look awesome! Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.
