Frosty the Snowman

...came to life one cold winter day.  I love Frosty the Snowman!  Stampin' Up! has this "retro" Santa / Frosty stamp set named "Jolly Old Saint Nick".  Jolly Ole' Saint Nicholas...lean you ear this way...

Back to Frosty.  This has to be my favorite Snowman image.  Ain't he a cutie?

I've cased Michelle Zindorff (AKA the brayer Queen!)  Here's her tutorial entitled Chilly Day #382.  As soon as I saw her card, I knew I had to try this tutorial. 

I did change a couple of things from her original card - the right side is a sentiment instead of a die cut.  I also used the snowflake from Jolly Old Saint Nick in the sky as well as make large dots.  Ahem...she said small random dots.  BUT, I did get the image all covered in Versamarker, and all inside the lines, too!  YAY!  It takes practice.  I made four of these cards.  Reckon I had enuf practice with this one.  {wink}

This is a fun card to send for Christmas thank-yous that should be arriving to recipients in January 2011.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo-valous day!
