Getting Cricky Simply Sunday and Preview Week -- Day One -- Snowman LOVE!! :)

Hey there, hi there, have ya heard the NEWS???  This Friday evening it's time for another Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  But it's EXTRA special cuz my AWESOME Design Team Sisters are pumping up the week with OVER 100 incredibly creative cards, layouts, and projects all featuring the WONDERFUL Stamps of K Andrew Designs!!  Woot-Woot!! :)  I sure hope you'll join the FUN throughout the week...  You're guaranteed to pick up more than a bit of inspiration!!  :)

It's also the start of a BRAND NEW Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky!!  The theme for this challenge is "Let It Snow"...  AND we'd LOVE to see some embossing on your project too!!  Lemme show ya what I made now....
I just L-O-V-E this adorable snowman found on the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge -- He sure looks happy to spend his days in the blustery cold (Brrrr...  Not me!!)...  This little guy is cut at 3 inches (main layer from white and orange cardstock, blackout layer from brown cardstock).
My white background was embossed with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.
I added SU!'s Creamy Caramel ink to the edges and over the swirls to "antique" it a bit before I heat set some black Liquid Applique for the eyes and buttons.  A black pen and glitter pen created the mouth, texture on "arms", and stitching around the base.
I'm loving my homespun ribbon (keep an eye on my blog for how you can SCORE some of my homespun ribbon this week!!)...
And, last (but certainly not least!), I stamped and colored the "Love You" sentiment on a 1" tag...  This wonderful mix-n-match sentiment can be found on the Owly Hoo Stamp Art Sentiment Set...  Which, incidentally, is the set I'll be featuring for you ALL week long!!  If you find you can't go on without this set (how did you make it this long???), you can make this set YOURS by clicking here OR by clicking on the image below...

Amy, I think your snowman card is SNOW cute. I can't relate right now....it's 75 degrees outside but I do remember making them when I lived in Canada as a youngster. LOVE the swirls and the effort you ALWAYS put into hand-made cards. You are a very special addition to ANY design group! TFS
Creative Wishes,
