Mr. & Mrs. Snowman

Hubby and I celebrated our 31st Anniversary last Monday.  I made him this card using stamps from a long-retired, wood-mounted set by CTMH:


I stamped the lady first, masked her left side, then stamped the man. I used about thirty colors of Copic markers to get the shading and chose Seahawk colors to coordinate with the neck scarf I got him for his gift.  To keep from obscuring the view of all my coloring, I used clear snowflakes from Heidi Swapp.  It was a lot of work, but my husband's look of awe and, "I love that you can do this," made it all worth it.

For those of you who might have missed it yesterday, my Christmas novella "Letters from Santa" is still free today on Kindle only.  The sale is gone at the end of today, so hurry and get your copy.

If you link through and see only the $5.97 print version, click on "See all 2 formats and editions" just below the reviewer stars to see the Kindle only format.

I'd like to get up to 40 reviews on this so, even if you don't like the story, I'd really appreciate your honest opinion. (I always mistrust all 5-star reviews. Don't you?)

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas.  We hosted four single soldiers who couldn't make it home this year.  It was the first year where I fully embraced this army tradition.  I think God rewarded me for finally getting the proper attitude by sending us a man who was born in what he describes as the bush of Kenya.  He didn't want to eat off my everyday plates because they were too fancy and took home a paper napkin because the print was so beautiful.  How humbling and rewarding to be in the presence of such gratitude.

Until next time,
Becca

    1. "Melt My Heart". It's a set with three snowmen, a stitched holly and heart border, and a sentiment that says, "You melt my heart."
