We had a fun Queen for the Day challenge last week over on Split Coast - Trisha posted a list of all the Queens for 2012 with the date they were queen - and we were to CASE a card from the Queen closest to our birthday! My talented stamping friend Peggy (pegmac71) was queen the day after my birthday last year.
I cased her adorable Top Note Snowman card First, because it is SO totally CUTE - and second because she sent it to me for Christmas!
I needed to change some things - so I made mine a snowman Valentine - using red and pink papers, clear heart gems for the pupils in the eyes and sparkly hearts for the hat and nose! The sentiment is from a lovely new Valentine set called My Heart from Waltzingmouse. I embossed the hat with the Square Lattice Emb folder from SU.
Top Note die from Stampin'Up - which I used ALL the time when I finally purchased it (after holding out for quite a while!) but hadn't used lately at all.
I know we don't necessarily think of snow being associated with Valentines - but Valentine's Day does occur in February when we often have snow on the ground (depending on what part of the world you live in). Here are a few free vintage images I found on line
So there you go - snow/winter and Valentine's Day!
