Wishing for Snow

I know many of you may think I'm crazy, but I love snow.  I also love snowmen.   I go to the Hero Arts website from time to time to see what's new.  I also went this time because Sandy Allnock from Operation Write Home was there teasing about some new Operation Write Home stamps that will be coming out.  Just so you know, I didn't see the new OWH stamps yet.   However, I read about the contest they have going on right now. It actually has three different categories for entry.  Here is a link to the contest.

I decided to make something for the contest.  I'm not much for Neon colors, but that's exactly what I used here.  I think the Neon blue works well for my snow stamp.  I inked my stamp, left it ink side up, placed the cardstock on top of the stamp and used a brayer  to make sure I got good ink covereage onto the cardstock.  Worked like a charm.  :)

I added an embossed white layer, some ribbon,  Hero Arts gems and  Hero Arts glitter. This card won't be going to Operation Write Home because of the glitter.  I'm pretty sure I can find someone to send it to though.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Very cute card. You are so good to participate in write home. I really need to go and find out more about it.

So cute, Jeanette! Love the sparkle. I can't say that I love the snow, but I don't mind it:) I'm happy that what we got last week went away, but we'll have white ground soon enough.
