Building with Love!!

OK so you may have seen this picture before....it was made during christmas vaca last year.My Husband brilliant and wonderful and extremely smart built a snowman his height 6'7....Well when the kids tried to put the scarf ,eyes nose etc,on for some reason they couldn't reach.....but as i pointed this out to them everyone else was excited to be out there with their dad oblivious to the height discrepancy.So this day Another snowman was built with VERY much love and enthusiasm. This stamp is by Wags and Whiskers,I ordered 2 because 1 was a gift.My girls are each getting one in their stocking but different wags and whiskers images....can't wait till they let me borrow them....i am itchin to ink them up and Let me tell ya do they ever ink up beauuutifully.
So i inked these cuties up using Black Staz-On Ink,90Lb hot-press frosted wcolor paper.I pulled out my Tombow Water-based markers,paintbrush,and distilled water....now i am not trying to draw attention to my error but if you look closely you will see what happened some red ran into the blue on the snowman but guess what it was not an easy fix so a lesson to learn is to be careful of the darker colors that you only need a smidge of.

This little cutie looks like it is being built with sooo much love.Again i used paper out of my scrap bin.The patterned paper is WRMKeepers,The cardstock is Bazill Wine Bling,the brads are by The Paper Studio,and the flower is actually from my stash and its Making Memories Noteworthy Blossoms.

Hi phebe,
thanks for your lovely comments, my calender measures 6" x 6" i used a normal single fold card and then just folded the front of the card in half so that it could stand up to put the picture on, hope that makes sense,
