STVV02 - Frosty the Snowman

I figured that I'd post the STVV challenge early - here. I'm not planning on posting it until morning on SCS, so whoever reads this, gets a head start.

The song for today is...

"Frosty the Snowman" Most everyone knows the words, but for those who aren't sure:

Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman
Is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow
But the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around

Frosty the Snowman
Was alive as he could be
And the children say
He could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me

Frosty the Snowman
Knew the sun was hot that day
So he said let's run
And we'll have some fun
Now before I melt away

Down to the village
With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square
Saying catch me if you can

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler stop

Frosty the Snowman
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye
Saying don't you cry
I'll be back again some day

Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow

**I honestly was thinking about choosing "O Christmas Tree" in honor of Wendybell's tree which had to be replaced earlier this week, but I figured I'd be nice. Plus I got a new snowman stamp at Hobby Lobby tonight. I just had to use it!
My card:
  • Card Base is Garden Green - regular size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Layers of Bordering Blue and Close to Cocoa
  • Snowman is my new Penny Black Frosty stamp - inked in Bordering Blue.
  • I masked the snowman and then stamped the truck from Loads of Love in Garden Green.
  • I used my Prismacolor pencils to color in the truck, draw a road and snowdrifts in the background. I also shaded the snowman.
  • I paper pierced the edge of the Bordering Blue level.
  • I added 2 large eyelets from We R Memory Keepers and some May Arts ribbon.
