Sledding Time & Fred Frolic

Thanks to a very sweet blogging friend, I received some stamps from Poppystamps to play with. You know who you are and I can't thank you enough for that, girl! =) Thank you to Dave, the owner of the fabulous Memory Box and Poppystamps, for being so generous. I am so happy to have the chance to play with your lovely stamps!

Here are two cards that I made using some adorable stamps from Poppystamps.


I used Sledding Time for my first card. Aren't these characters so adorable? I love them!


This is a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" card.


I paired the image with Memory Box's Dewfrost collection. Memory Box's 6x6 pads are some of my most favorites! They always have beautiful designs and the paper quality is really good.


I used the delightful Fred Frolic for my second card. He just makes me smile! =)


Since it looks like he is charging forward, I thought it would be fun to make him appear that he is running out of the label shape. I think many of you must have photos of your kids running out of the camera frame in a winter day just like him! =)


The patterned paper is from the Mistletoe collection also by Memory Box. Both sentiments are from Papertrey Ink.

That's all for today. I am pretty sure you will be seeing more cards made using stamps from Poppystamps from me. =)



Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!
