I know, I know. Strange post title. However, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade! I wanted to play along with The Alley Way Stamps #16 Be Inspired Challenge, but didn't have any TAWS Christmassy stamps. So, I made lemonade...or rather, a snowman--out of bowling balls. Their challenge is filled with fun colors and great images, so you see why I wanted to participate. And while I was at it, I saw that the Color Throwdown had really similar colors! So I thought, what the heck, I'll play there too! Love these color combinations, don't you??!!!
Here's what I created, taking my inspiration from the circles on the stocking, and of course, the snowman.
I added a smile to the top bowling ball, and, voila, a cute face, this is from TAWS AdoraBowl set. For his little arms, I used a stamp from TAWS Awesome Blossoms set. I masked off the finger holes on the bottom bowling ball, and put some pop-dots underneath both.A washi tape scarf, and the little fellow is complete. My sister Sue punched out some silver snowflakes for me a couple of years ago, and everytime I tried to throw them out, something stopped me--glad I didn't! Then some layered circles out of Bazzill colored cardstock, added a couple of small blings, and there you have it. I used a computer generated font for the "Merry Christmas." The snowman and card base are Bazzill too. Hope this makes you happy dance a bit today.
