Yeti Hugs!

This post is getting squeezed in just in time for the Lawnscaping challenge "Favorite Things". I have been waiting 14 days for my newest Lawn Fawn products to arrive, and they came in the mail today... just in time! I know I've only owned these stamps for 4 hours, but I know they are my FAVORITE Lawn Fawn stamps in the history of ever.

The adorable little Yeti was the first one I inked up. I also made my first ever shaker card (which are a favorite, but I've always been too afraid to try for myself!).


You can't say no to a hug like that! I also need to share why this is part of my 'favorite things'... I have great memories of my dad and I at Disneyland. He assured me that the Matterhorn was the best ride in the entire park, and we'd get to see the abominable snowman. Well we rode the ride over and over again and went on each of the different tracks until we got to see him. There is nothing like being in Disneyland with your daddy and screaming at the Yeti!!


Yup. A shaker card. My first shaker card. I learned a loooot about this style, made a lot of mistakes along the way, but I learned for next time. The most important? Make the background one layer :)



There some fun flocking powder on his earmuffs so he can stay nice and warm in the Matterhorn blizzards :)

  12. Love that shaker card with the sequin snow - a perfect way to use them w/o having to adhere them to something which is the reason I have yet to used sequins!! The Yeti with the warm earmuffs is too cute!
