Snowman Spirit

I love snow. I love shoveling. I love skiing. I love snow. Winter makes me happy.

My sister and mom came over Saturday for a stamping day. We all had projects that we needed to get done. My mom designed cards. I worked on an ornament (to be revealed later). My sister worked on some secret projects and I helped her work on a Secret Santa gift. We had a good day. Our to do lists are shorter, but still have items on them!

Here is Snowman Jar, I helped design:

I used my Seasonal Icons Hostess Simply Scrappin' Kit for the paper and inspiration. We wanted a central snowman image, but AMAZINGLY, I HAVE NO SNOWMAN STAMPS! My mom had this one. My sister stamped and colored it. (Her favorite part). I forgot the set, sorry. I added 1/4 inch white grosgrain ribbon to the belly band and lid. I also added a bow made of Baja Breeze double stitched ribbon. The tag was stamped in pretty in pink using Snow Burst snowflakes. I then printed a poem on the tag. I punched the corners with the ticket corner punch and added brads on each corner. I then layered the back with Baja Breeze and attached using elastic silver cord.

Here's a better view of the rub-ons. I love how they blend right in. They will really POP when the jar is filled with peanut butter M&M's! Yum. Yum.

Here's a picture of the tag. We really liked this poem and wanted to include it. If you can't read it, here it is:
