Snow Snow Snow

This will be the last posting for today. I have to say that I was a little nervous about using the TJ technique, shadow tiles. I had seen several cards using this technique and they looked so difficult. Since the Try That Technique challenge this week is shadow tiles, it seemed like the perfect time to take the plunge. I used my Martha Stewart scoring board and the technique was a piece of cake.
I love this little snowman from Serendipity. I bought him months ago, but never got a chance to use him.  I pulled him out today and had fun with him. The challenge this month at Serendipity is buttons. Every snowman needs buttons on his outfit. (The snowflakes are also buttons.) Tuesday Throwdown challenged us to feature a snowman. I guess no explanation is necessary here.
