In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say: Are you married? We'll say: No man,
But you can do the job When you're in town.
~ Winter Wonderland lyrics by Richard B. Smith, 1934
The phrase "Some Assembly Required" usually incites one of those instinctive fears all of us is born with and, I think, the company motto of Ikea. But, with snowmen, the assembly is half the fun.
It's Day Four of the My Favorite Things Teasers, and the designers and I are showing off the newest "Who's That Girl" stamp set.
I always want to answer the question "Who's That Girl" with "Marlo Thomas!" but that dates me. Sorry, I digress. I adored that show.
By now you probably know all about the new release festivities, but it's worth repeating because it's so fun and I don't want you to miss any of it. The My Favorite Things (MFT) release is on Tuesday, December 11th at 10:00 pm EST. You can visit the My Favorite Things Blog for a full listing of designers with samples to share each day and all the details on how you can take my place next month as a guest designer, join the party on Tuesday night at the Splitcoast Stampers forum, and get your hands on all these new toys.
There's nothing more romantic than a sparkly evening snowfall. Marlo would agree.
How cute is that new Snowflake Doily with this snowflake paper?! You have NOT seen the last of this doily – I absolutely love it. I have about a dozen ideas for it – so stay tuned. (Yes, that's a teaser about a Teaser.)
Here's the inside of my card using one of the sweet sentiments from this set.
We don't have our Christmas tree up yet for lots of crazy reasons, but mostly because I've been gimping around and just had knee surgery on Thursday. The surgery went really well, and my men treated me like a princess. Of course, I didn't let my crafting suffer, but, well, Christmas decorations are a bit behind.
This ornament clearly needed a Christmas tree. So, I was on a quest.
I snuck my little ornament and camera into one of the stores selling pre-lit Christmas trees, and honeys, that store was crowded last Saturday. Posing as crazy paparazzi with my butt stuck out in the shopping isles is just one of the many sacrifices I make for my craft.
This adorable sentiment from the same set makes this possibly one of my favorite projects Evah! "The Heart of a Snowman Always Melts."
How stinkin' cute is that?! And easy! At one of the big-box craft stores I stumbled onto a photo ornament just hanging there at the end of the isle. You know, one of those ornaments that let you slide in your favorite photo? It's three inches big – perfect for the "Who's That Girl" stamps.
My melted snowman (a.k.a. a Texas snowman) is made of
- rock salt;
- a couple of twigs for arms;
- black, 5-millimeter sized pom poms for coal;
- some tiny buttons; and
- a doll-house size carrot for a nose.
I like this project so much, and, you know, I made such a sacrifice (of my dignity) to photograph it, here's another shot of it.
Here are the rest of the products from My Favorite Things for both the card and the ornament.
Thank you for all your very sweet comments about my Teaser projects. I've had a blast making them, and even more fun reading your comments. There's still more to come . . . see you tomorrow.Pin It
