You Make My Heart Melt

Hello friends.  Recently a new shop, The Paper Cottage, opened in my area.  The owner, Brenda, has been a scrapper and cardmaker for years and finally decided to open her own shop!  Anyhow, Brenda carries the adorable Paper Smooches stamps and I made some samples for her shop. 


I used the Warm Hearts stamp set for this card.  As you can see, this cute little frosty fella requires minimal coloring so it's a fast and easy card.  I did add some Glamour Dust to the snowman and the snowflake cause you know I love my sparkle!  The sentiment is part of the stamp set too.  The paper is Winter Fun by Carta Bella - love the patterns and the blue/brown colors.  I used My Favorite Things Dienamics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax to cut the banner.  

Just so you know, The Paper Cottage, is having a Holiday Open House on Saturday, November 24.  There will be snacks, holiday ideas, and some special discounts that day.  If you are in the area, be sure to stop by - I know you'll love the shop.  Brenda will be celebrating her birthday that day, so be sure to tell her Happy Birthday!

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm :-D

Hugs, Anita
