Snowman and Friends

     Nothing too exciting here.  I just was in the mood to make a card yesterday and I came up with this simple little card.  It gave me a chance to play around with my Copics and a stamp I hadn't used yet.  The card base is a recessed frame card.  I had several requests to do a tutorial for this style of card and a couple of others that I included in my Card maker's Christmas album.  You can find those on my YouTube channel, Tracylovestoscrap.
     I don't know how you snowbirds live in all that snow.  It's gotten down into the twenties here the last couple of nights and I'm miserably cold.  Trying to get up the courage to go out and run some errands.  You snow veterans probably think I'm a wimp.  :)
     I'm going to enter my little simple card in a few challenges just for fun.

Tuesday Throwdown--clean and simple
