Keep Cozy

Hi!  I think I have Christmas on my brain.  So when I saw the latest Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at TGF, I really wanted to use the snowmen from their Keep Cozy set.  And also because the challenge is "white out" or a white theme, it reminded me of snow (snowmen), although it doesn't snow here.  I was lucky enough too that my Keep Cozy set came in the mail on Saturday.  Just in time!  So I decided to make some tags using all the snowmen.

I used PTI's tag sale die and stamped the sentiments that come with the Keep Cozy set before embossing the tags with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots folder.  I colored their carrot noses, added some bling for buttons and some glossy accents on some parts of each snowman (earmuffs, top hat and mittens).  I cut out the cute snowmen and popped them up with dimensionals.  I added stickles on the raised dots of the tags.  You can click the photo for a close up.  I have to say that trying to photograph this was kind of tough.  It's either too much glare or the colors get blown out or can't see all the accents.  So finally, I think this was the best I could do.

Now I have to get going on my art journal assignment.  I think my daughter has given up or actually doesn't have much time for it anymore in her schedule.  She is busier than I am.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Cute tags! Adorable snowmen, like what you did with the glossy accents! I thought you actually colored it gray or something.
