Living in Georgia it doesn’t really get that cold here – I like it that way.  It’s cold already and getting colder.  I suppose most of the country is the same.  Here they are saying the coldest temps since 1986!  Monday a low of 6 degrees – yikes!  Ryan should be going back to school on Monday but I have a feeling they may not have it.  I guess we shall see.

I realized I didn’t share this card earlier – it was actually one of my November Stamper’s Club projects!  I completely forgot to take photos of the projects we made in November.

telescope-snow-manIt’s actually pretty fitting to share this now – since it is so cold.  It’s my telescoping snowman card!  He is all twisted up to fit inside an envelope but when you stretch him out – he looks like this –


I used the Circle Framelits to make this fun card!  And guess what – the Circle Framelits are part of the weekly deals this week – so you can get them for $20.21 – regular price is $26.95.  And I used Bermuda Bay ink which is also on the weekly deals – $4.46 for the classic ink pad.   To see all of this weeks deals or place an order – CLICK HERE.

Here are a few more notes about this card –

  • Circle Framelits to create all 3 pairs of circles – Bermuda Bay/Whisper White, Real Red/Whisper White, Pool Party/Whisper White
  • The bottom two sections were stamped with the Endless Wishes stamp set
  • The buttons in the center are punched from Basic Black using the Itty Bitty Circle punch
  • The nose is punched from Tangerine Tango using the Itty Bitty Ornament punch
  • The eyes are rhinestones that were colored black with a sharpie
  • The hat is a 1-1/4″ square punch with two corners rounded and a word window punch at the base – all in Basic Black.
  • A piece of Real Red ribbon around the hat.
  • A white flower is from the Boho Blossoms punch with a Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine bow added to the center of the flower.
  • The arms are the retired snowflake punch.
  • The circles are connected with the Silver Mini Brads.

Stay warm!!
