Coloring Down the Lines -- Pool Party

I certainly hope once the holidays are over things slow down -- a lot!  I feel every day like I'm running a race.  Whew!  Shopping and wrapping are done, but I am only about 3 weeks late in baking cookies, planning meals, and spending time sitting in front of the tree and listening to music.  I usually try to spend evenings with a fire and some music -- to get in the spirit.    Starting today, though, I hope to slow down.  I'm setting up this post on Tuesday morning before heading 90 miles away to my son's house.  Hubby and I are going to listen to our grandson, who is having his strings recital tonight, so we are going to listen to him play Christmas music.  I know he is just a beginner, but it will be fun to listen.  We won't get home until close to midnight.  I doubt I will feel like doing cards and posts then.

So, having said all that, I bet you are here for our Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop.  Well, you have come to the right place.  We were challenged to use Pool Party with So Saffron and Not Quite Navy or Pool Party with Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi.  I used the first choice.  If you arrived from Liz's blogsite I know you had a treat with what she has done for us.   I like simplicity, and I love her lineup of trees.   Now here is my card.  This is Dapper Dan -- Uh, I mean Dapper Snowman!

I am not terribly happy with it, as I think I could have done better.  What was in my head did not come out on paper.  But, since I didn't get started sooner, and am rushing off to the concert, this is what I need to go with.  One nice thing about this card, Mr. Dapper Snowman is struttin' his stuff with tophat and diamond buttons.  He must be off to a concert tonight too -- only not of the elementary school style.  I bet we have more fun.

So I hope you like Mr. Dapper, now let's head over to Teri's blogsite to see what she did.  I can't wait to see............

Come back to see me again soon.

Crafty Hugs,

I really like this, Sandy! Your snowdude is perfectly colored, and this card is a great reminder to use the backside of the embossing folder too! GREAT JOB! (sorry about "yelling", but I know how those beginner concerts can be... ;)
