Oh Frosty!

Hi Everyone and Merry Christmas in July!

Ok, that is a little early but I had to say it.  LOL!

I want to show you a fun little project today with the happiest Snowman on the planet!  No matter what time of year he is happy in his little home.

I got the idea when looking at some cards in one of my local card stores and did some searching and found this site with a template.


Here is a closer look at the globe which I thought was the perfect home to showcase Cheery Lynn’s sweet Frosty the Snowman die.  I just love this die and can see so many cool projects you can create with adorable die.  Who would want to see this little guy on their Christmas card?


and here is a closer look at the base where I added some beautiful snowflakes and the Christmas Sleigh Border on the bottom.


and finally, this folds flat for mailing, how cool is that!


Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B140 – Christmas Sleigh Border
C140 – Frosty the Snowman
C146 – Snowflakes
DL157 – Mega Polynesian Sails Doily

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Christmas in July.  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope you enjoyed and visit again soon.  I love to read your comments, they just make my day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
