BBTB2/Frosty Snowman

Mr. Snowman AND some Blog Candy
The winner I named did not check back to see the results and since the commenter had no blog or email, I am going to name a new winner of the Gypsy Tote.  Brenda.  Yay Brenda.  I will mail the Gypsy Tote out tomorrow (THURSDAY 2-13-2013) 

It's our BBTB2 month end challenge ... and we were  asked  to design with Frosty the Snowman.  While I love designing with such a cute fella, I am oh so glad that I live in Arizona sans the cold snow.  I was born here 75 years ago, and my blood is so thin that even the slightest cooling temps will send me shivering, seeking warmth. 

Here is my Snowman, happy to see the snow.  He is cut from Christmas Cheer, embossed properly and with little buttons on his snow-suit.  The snowflakes are a MS punch, double layers and sprinkled with crystal glitters.  Sweet little snowman!!!

We hope you will join in our Frosty The Snowman challenge. Create something new and link it up to BBTB2, be sure to give us a shout out on your blog, and mention the cartridge used for your card or creation.   NOW....onward.... I am destashing some of the things I have sewn.

Here is some blog candy.  It's a brightly sewn Gypsy Tote.  It will fit your Gypsy like a glove, and with that bright fabric, you could probably find it in the dark.  I've embroideried "Hangin' with My Gypsy" on the front and there is a pretty little orange ribbon should you wish to hang the tote nearby. If you leave a comment on my Snowman card and you own a Gypsy and want to be in the drawing, please ask.  I am not sure if all of my visitors own a Gypsy so mentioning this will help me put the right names in

He makes me smile! :) I'm pretty sure it's the great expression on his face, or it could be his colorful scarf, but either way, he makes me smile. Yummy job on the glittery snowflakes.
As always, Carole, your little sewn treats are delightful AND useful! Love that little Gypsy sleeping bag and the extra "features". YOU ROCK!
