Yes, you know I absolutely love snowmen! For some odd reason, I think they are so cute! It reminds me of that movie, Jack Frost, when the snowman actually comes to life as the father, oh gosh, I do love that movie (caution - it's a little sad!!). Anyway, check out the size of this snowman!! It's in the Holiday Mini and I wasn't going to purchase it because it had this thank you note in the middle of his tummy (see below for a picture of the stamp). Then, Connie Babbert, another Stampin' Up! demonstrator, shared this project and I even sent her a note telling her now I had to purchase that stamp from the Holiday Mini too!!!! Really, I don't think there is very much that I didn't purchase from that Holiday Mini!! When the stamp arrived, I knew I could just color the outside lines of the image with a marker and stamp it that way, but then decided to cut out the words from his tummy!!! I just took an X-acto Knife and cut them out. I did leave the backing on that part of the stamp because if I want to use them, I can just place them back inside the image! It was a great solution!!!

This project is pretty self explanatory. I used the Simple Seasonal Thanks (yup, that's the name of the snowman stamp) and the Bitty Box XL die. I put the box together and punched a hole in the top of the box to hold the LED candle. PLEASE DO NOT USE A REAL CANDLE - IT IS WAY TOO HOT AND WILL CAUSE A FIRE. Something to remember is to purchase your LED candle prior to making the circle in the top of the Bitty Box because they are different sizes and you want to make sure your circle in the right size.

Here's the stamp set!!

I love this guy!!! I'm off to work because the sooner I get there, the sooner I can leave and I have a Stampin' Up! order coming today with goodies from the new Occasions Mini!! Woo hoo!!!!!!!
