Let it Snow - My Self Challenge 2019

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Moving right along with my holiday card creations. 
I purchase a stamp set (breaking my diet) just to get this cute little snowman.  Actually, I had to purchase the stamps to complete a customer order and that cost is billed directly to the client, so technically, I still haven't spent money on stamps.   Anyway, I am looking for more ways to present this little guy!
Stuff I Used:
White Cardstock
Copic Markers

Noel - Challenging Myself in 2019

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Well, my Christmas Card Making Challenge continues.  
I have quite a collection of "scene making stamps."  When I first started stamping, that was all the rage.  But then I discovered that I really am not very good at coloring and I focused on creating cards (using wallpaper samples) to create my card projects.  The stamp used in this project has been in my stash since 2000 this year seemed like a great time to break it out and use it.  This is my second card using the stamp.
I combined two stamps to create this card and I am so happy with the final card.  I wasn't sure about using a sentiment on the front of the card until I remembered that I had purchased some Tim Holtz holiday dies last year.  The noel sentiment worked perfectly!
