Merry & Bright Groovy Snowman!

It's sweltering outside as I stamp & color images from JustRite's Groovy Snowman Set! This is my favorite time of year to create holiday cards and gifts. Less pressure, summer still in the air, and the grill being fired up for dinner!

Just look at all the snowmen goodness in this wonderful set, JR Groovy Snowman! I just smiled and smiled as I colored! I've never seen a snowman that did not just delight my heart! That is one reason several years ago how my snowmen collection began. I did decrease the collection quite a bit when we moved last year, however I still have many special snowmen to set out during the holiday and winter months.

The image is colored with Copic Markers, colors listed below. I was lucky enough to be in Debbie Olsen's first Copic class she instructed back in June while she was in Grand Rapids, Michigan! Can't say enough about her spectacular work, and she's just as kind, gracious, and lovely as you could imagine!

Another Christmas set, Christmas Nested Sentiments is shown above. Not only are these sentiments useful along side your stamped images, they surely will be as perfect for your cards inside!

Merry & Bright was stamped for today's outside sentiment, while I chose a larger, more wordy sentiment for the card inside. The possibilities for these Christmas sentiments are endless! Love the varied sizes, wording, and coordination usage with JustRite's nested frames.
This is but one of four cards I've created for a gift set! I'm repurposing a wonderful Christmas box from last year to house the set and will be revealing all that goodness this weekend. Hope you've been able to follow along this week over on the JustRite BLOG as they feature JustRite Designer creations using new JustRite Christmas sets! You will be inspired, guaranteed! Take good care! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
