The Snowman Scoop! (a card and verse)

Hi Everyone ... This is ♥Carol♥ ... Welcome to my Little Creation Corner.  I hope everyone is off to a great start with your Holiday crafts.  I seem to be running a little slow this year, so I am now working like a little demon trying to get my Christmas cards completed.

Here's one of my first cards for the year ... I struggled trying to find a snowman with the right size tummy, so I made my own by welding two circles from the George cart using Design Studio and added the hat and scarf and carrot nose from the Snow Friends Cartridge. I also added a ribbon, a pompom and wiggly eyes to give the card a little more character and gave him a grin by using my hole punch .. the grin is a little large, next time I will use a smaller hole punch.

BTW, the center of the tummy is a Stampin'Up Treat cup filled with marshmallows.  Not that I am trying to give anyone a plug here ... but I purchased my Stampin'Up supplies from Mandy Ferg from the message board.  If you don't have a Stampin'Up rep yet, I highly recommend her ... besides being a super sweet lady, she also is a wonderful Stampin'Up representative and has great customer service too!

The image inside is from PC Crafters, the verse is one I made special for this card, and the lettering is computer generated.

I hope you like it, and, as always ... thanx for looking

The verse is hard to read ... this is what it says ...

This Snowman’s Special
Here’s the scoop,
His tummy’s really
Filled with poop!

But that’s not the part
That’s so incredible,
This Snowman’s poop
Is really edible!

Just take a bite
And you will see,
His poop is
Yummy as can be!

He also brings
This wish from us
For a Happy New Year
& Merry Christmas!

I hope you enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you.  Thanx again for visiting my Little Creation Corner.  If you have the time, leave me a comment, I love hearing reading what all of you have to say!  HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE

Such a fun card! I love the poem you've written to go with it. I just purchased the SU treat cups and am sneaking around the net for ideas. Thanks for sharing yours!
