Those Snowflakes are Coming! FMS357





The Big Guy isn't exactly a craft fair person so his first purchase ever at a craft fair is definitely noteworthy!  Erin had a booth of her thirty-one products at a local craft fair on Sunday and the Big Guy was on duty at the end of the day to help take down the tent and load the car.  He arrived a bit early and decided to have a sandwich while he waited.  On his way back from the food tent he passed a table of handmade wood and metal signs.  It was a beautiful warm fall day but he just couldn't resist this wintry sign.......




He'll never change.........it's all about the snow with him!  

So I took my inspiration from the sketch and his purchase.  The flakes were stamped in Versamark and embossed in white.  I covered the background with Distress Inks and added a sentiment using a diecut from Lawn Fawn.


Cecile has a delightful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Join us!

Love this! I forget about my distress inks and you've inspired me to pull them out with your pretty background! With 90 degrees expected today I can only pray we get a touch of fall soon!

This is as sweet as can be, especially since this is a bit of a challenge sketch for me!....but how special is the Big Guy, making that cool craft show purchase! I can honestly say that John has only ever bought FOOD at a craft show, LOL!

Your inky background is gorgeous and perfect with the sketch! The snowflakes I like best are the paper kind, like on your card. I guess it's a good thing I live in Texas and not upstate New York. :)

Awesome card! Looks just like a snowy day! Love that sentiment too. :) Fantastic sign! Tell your husband that he's got good taste and that he should shop at craft fairs more often. ;)

I LOVE that sign! I need to make one, winter is always welcomed here. We have 5 to 6 months of heat and winter feels so good.
Love your card! Snowflakes are one of my favorite things and I can't not buy stamp sets with them.

Linda great job linking the sketch with the your card and the craft fair purchase! Love the die cut sentiment, and I guess most guys have a hard time getting excited about craft fairs, so kudos that he even went! Hugs
PS: ... I'm not a winter person, but love the "look" of snow.

The more you share about the Big Guy, the more I like him, Linda! What's not to like about a guy who will shop at a craft fair?
There's not one thing I don't love about your card... well. if honest? I'm not one to rush that four letter word... xx

Such a great card Linda! I love those snowflakes! They're so pretty! I wish I loved snow as much as you guys do! I am dreading winter this year!! I could do summer all year round!

I'm trying to pretend that winter is not coming and that there will be no snow in my future and then I look here and see a very pretty snowflake card! Snowflakes on cards are much more preferable to the ones on the ground! Your background is fabulous and I love that scripty sentiment. The Big Guy can keep his snow - and he can have mine too if he wants it.

Your card is so simple, yet so beautiful! The die cut "let it snow" rocks! Fun inspiration too!
