Happy Snowman SFYTT

My card for today uses Jen's fun Sketch for You to Try from 1/10/09. I made this card in response to Jen's request as posted on her blog here.

She wrote:
"Fellow North Texan and Splitcoaster Julie Carlisle {afancycat on SCS} works in the International Student Services Department at Dallas Baptist University {DBU}. They have students from over 50 countries at the University that they give cards to. I have donated several cards to her in the past and she was one of the first people that came to mind when I decided I wanted to do this blog tart giveaway, as she is always so sweet and grateful."

Send your card to her at the address:
Dallas Baptist University
Attn: Julie Carlisle
3000 Mountain Creek Pkwy
Dallas, TX 75211

If you are so inclined, I encourage you to make and send a card to DBU at the address above. Plus, as an added bonus, Jen is offering up a chance to win some huge blog candy for those who participate by the end of the month! Check out all the details in the link to her blog above.

This is the card that I'm sending in the mail today. The temps are heading toward 80 here in Phoenix, but I'm still in the snowman mood. I didn't put a sentiment on this card. I thought it could be used for just about anything. It's all pretty much self-explanatory. I did punch a snowflake out of acetate and attached it with the brad to the lower right corner of the snowman (it's kind of hard to see though).

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
