Before I start my description, I want to share with you all and also give a huge, warm welcome to our Midnight Madness September Guest Designer Diva: Carol Hurlock. She is so super talented, and we are thrilled to be working alongside her this month. If you haven't already seen her work, please do stop by her blog. You will be so amazed at her talent and find lots of inspiration to create some of your own pieces. It's worth the trip! CONGRATULATIONS, CAROL! I am so looking forward to working with you this month.
I want to give a special thank you to our September sponsor DRS who provided us with such wonderful stamps to work with.

Now, onto my card for the week:
I know that this is the favorite time of year for many people. It really is beautiful with all the Fall colors to be looking forward to, but I have to tell you. I stepped out of the house this morning to take my son to his bus stop, and the Fall chill in the air was more than I was ready for. We sort of got cheated out of our summer here in Western Pennsylvania this year, and it saddens me to see what little of our warm weather fading away so quickly. I have always found Spring to be a happier time of year for me, but I had better gear myself up and get ready for the cold and snow soon.....So, with that in mind, I thought I would share a happier part of winter with you. I decided to do a little early winter fun snowman card for this challenge. He sure looks happy to be out there in that cold, doesn't he? I tweaked this sketch just a bit to fit my theme, but I could not resist adding some snowballs and snowflakes to this scene. I also used some snow tex for real snow texture and glistened up the snowman so that he just sparkles. I used some pink glitter in the background...not only because I seem to love to stickles everything I touch, but I thought it might give a feel of a winter day at dusk. I hope you like my happy, chilly snowman, and I look forward to seeing the many different takes that everyone else has on this sketch. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments, and if you haven't already done so, don't forget to add your name to the blog candy.
