'Tis the Season with DD#29 & ATCAS#1

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. visitors!  Today of all days should conjure up visions of turkey and the colors of autumn, but Thanksgiving is also the gateway to the start of the winter season, so today I've got a snowy, snowman card to share.

The color challenge at Dynamic Duos is Marina Mist and Basic Black with a snowman theme thrown in for good measure.  As luck would have it there's a new challenge in town called Addicted to CAS and their inaugural challenge code word is "snow!"  Kismet!

I've got to admit that I'm not much of a fan of snow.  I live in New England where we see our fair share of the fluffy white stuff, but the truth is that I would be a happy camper if I never saw a snowflake ever again!  That being said, I am fond of snowman images and this happy fellow from Snow Much Fun is particularly engaging!  I gave him a snow drift that I cut from Silver Glimmer Paper and even a small pile of snowballs in case he wants to start a snowball fight later.

I'll be off later this morning to my sister's house to enjoy a lovely dinner with family, but I first wanted to offer an apology to the ladies at Dynamic Duos because I couldn't resist coloring the snowman's carrot nose orange.  I tried coloring it with a neutral color but it looked like a weird sepia-toned, washed out version of a carrot better suited for my compost pile.  So, in a direct defiance of the rules I used an unsanctioned color. Consider me chastised and hanging my head in shame and I promise to be good in the future.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving, Jen. We just finished our meal and are ready for Patriots football tonight...after a little nap!!!

Your card is great...who could ever complain about a little orange on a snowman's carrot nose...otherwise, it would look unnatural.

Such a cute card! Love your colouring (even the orange nose lol!) and the silver glimmer snow is a fabulous touch. Thanks for playing along with Dynamic Duos this week!

I colored my snowman's nose and scarf so no apology needed here! This is lovely and I may have to check out that challenge site as I love a CAS card. Thanks for playing with the Dynamic Duos this week.

I'm with you Jen - I don't care if I never see another snowflake again! Well except on a card of course - snow is fab for a Christmas card and yours is a beauty!
