I had most of this snowman done a few weeks ago and then really struggled with what to do with him. I was kind of focused on a darker background so he popped - but no matter what I tried, it just didn't work. Then I saw the CAS on Friday challenge was Christmas. I know it seems obvious now, but it was like a lightbulb came on. I gave him a little fun grounding and it stays totally CAS.
I have three adult men in my household. At least, they think they are adults - I have my doubts on all three of them. One tries very hard to be cool so no childlike glee at Christmas. One still wants to be a child but turns 21 four days after Christmas. And the other one is anti-commercial-Christmas including things like lights on the house - so a bit of a Scrooge right up until worship service on Christmas Eve. I need goofy, sarcastic cards for all of them - this one is for the Scrooge!
The snowman is from the Tim Holtz Colorize line. It's fun to put together but if my eyes change much more, I won't be able to see those fiddly little pieces! I added a little Charlie Brown tree using a twig from Funky Festive.
Thank you to CAS on Friday for pointing me in the right direction for this snowman!
