Mr. Twigster: GSG Holiday Mini Swap


I think this is the 4th swap card I've shared, just one more left! Schwooo! This went postal so it should be *safe* to show it now! It uses my favorite snowman, Mr. Twigster, from the SU Holiday Mini catalog, which is now available for order! Whoo! Hoo! I know some folks call him the Anorexic Snowman, but Mr. Twigster has a lot to offer and he can't help that he gains all his weight around the middle. (I seem to have the opposite problem where it lands on the hips, rear, and thighs, ugh!) But I digress with talk of physical imperfections...

Everything is pretty self-explanatory with him. I used the Oval Coluzzle Cutter, but I'm so excited because my new Oval Punch arrives today. I borrowed Lori's at the crop, and it's definitely a must-have item! Oh, on the actual swaps I used that new rope thread from the Holiday Mini instead of the Linen Thread, but this was my prototype card that I kept. I love that new rope trim!

Okay, gotta dash, definitely going to need coffee this morning. We lost sleep when we had to get up to investigate a burning smell coming from our air-conditioning unit outside. Great. Luckily it's getting cooler and we won't have to run it while we get it figured out, repaired, etc. It could have been worse, like in the middle of July or August!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
