KISS Monday #1

My friend Annie has come up with a fabby idea - KISS Monday (Keep It Simply Sweet). The idea is that every Monday between now and Christmas you make a card and share it. There are a few fun rules to keep things interesting so pop on over and check it out!!

Now - this week the was rectangles and squares. Okay so my base card is a square and the mat but I kinda went off here with the image and sentiment. Hopefully Annie will let me off (being honest I didn't notice this aspect of the challenge before I made the card!!)

I've coloured this fabby Sugar Nellie Snowman with Promarkers and used puffy snow on him too. DP is Basic Grey Eskimo kisses and cardstock is Bazzill. I so love ordering from Craft Obsessions - they always have matching Bazzill cardstock all picked out for you with each collection. Sentiment is Cuddly Buddly and I have used an EK Success border punch too.

I haven' had much chance to play with the new Promarkers before today and gosh it's hard to get used to integrating the new colours!! I feel like I've got to learn how to use these all over again now as the staple colours that I have always used to create skin, hair colours etc. have now all changed. Oh well - it keeps things interesting!!

ooo! well done you! shall we say 9 out of 10 then! love that dp and matching Basil and I got that cute snowman about a month ago and still haven't coloured him in. what colour do you use for snow? BTW, that chart you sent me is just fabulous for deciding what colours to use - and for seeing which ones to order next! I've ordered the paler ice greys from JS thinking they might do snow but they'll come while I'm away so hope DH hangs onto them for me!
hugs, annie x
