SSS26: Sketch with a Spin at Sweet N Sassy Stamps

Sometimes you're just instantly inspired by a sketch. This happens to be one of those times. I know the sketch is super simple, but it was just what I was looking for in my next card. I then read the details about this sketch and Sweet N Sassy Stamps additionally added the challenge of recycling. "Ok, I can do that..."

Easier said than done but looking through my stash I found this cute little snowman Christmas card I got a year ago from a dear friend. Using my trusty circle cutter he became my base for which the rest of the card developed around. I also used the little green checkered ribbon in a new way for me, but the ribbon has been in my stash FOREVER! (So I think it counts too.)

I finished the card off with sentiments from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I really think this card turned out sweet, and to think, that now from something old comes a brand new Christmas card! Now do I give this card to my friend this year for Christmas? Ha ha!

A terrific and adorable image and what a way to recycle! Love the little ribbon loops at the top right side and you used them in such a fun way....sort of like they would be part of a winter scarf, which is perfect for the snowman image. Great work and I hope you will join us each week for a new sketch, we'd love to have back again soon!
