In the meadow we can build a snowman...

Hello, everyone! I'm so glad to be sharing something with you again! On Monday, October 27, AmyR Stamps is releasing three new sets -- and here's a preview! This card was created with Build a Holiday, and the sentiment is from Christmas Sentiments. I have to tell you, Build a Holiday is such a great set! There are shapes and images for creating snowmen, ornaments, Christmas trees, packages, lights -- wherever your imagination takes you! The images are great for coloring or paper piecing, and here I did a lot of paper piecing! :)

I feel like I actually built a snowman! I stamped all the images onto patterned paper (BasicGrey Figgy), and I put them all together. The face, buttons, and twig arms were stamped onto the paper also. I colored his nose with a Copic marker. I mounted the hat and scarf on dimensionals, and I added some Stickles for a little snowy sparkle.

This set is so much fun! If you stop by the ATS Blog, you'll see more fantastic samples and find out how you can win the set! We'll have more to show you all weekend, so be sure to visit my ATS Design Teammates (on my sidebar) to see what they've done with Amy's sets!

Well, I'm off for a day at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, KY. It's the 10th Anniversary of my husband's company, and we're celebrating with everyone from his office! We're heading down on a bus and staying all day! I think I might be a little tired tomorrow morning... ;)

Have a great day, everyone -- thanks so much for stopping by!
