Since you all voted to have a snowman rubber stamp this year, Paul has up and drawn us some preliminary sketches.

What are your thoughts? I dunno about you guys but I LOVE THEM ALL!!!
And look, Pauls daughter, Lana, also drew some snowmen for us. Aren't they the sweetest thing? Looks as though artistic talent runs in the family! I love how she wrote 'Snow Mans'.

Anyhoo, I'll relay your thoughts and opinions to Paul (but I'm absolutely certain he lurks and can read them here.)


***UPDATE***

Pauls' comments after reading your responses:

I'll bear in mind some of the comments, about the stick arms, complicated
mouths, etc. All your shack friends should feel free to come up with
suggestions, after all they are the stampers, not me! I do have a fairly wide
selection of stamps I'm going to use for texture and shading reference this
year, so hopefully the impression you'll get with your final stamp will be very
clear.

I'm happy to do another sketch of two snowmen holding hands, if that would
go down well too. The reason I didn't do the snowman facing front [in the moonlight image]
is that it's nice to have a sideways silhouette if you've got a bit light-source behind. I'll
be tinkering with whatever is chosen to really get it right, pose wise!

FYI (and if it goes further it will be clearer) it's a little girl holding the
snowcone (I know you can't really tell with the hat and all!)

Best wishes
Paul

I want them all, but the kid with the ice cream cone draws me. Lana's snowmen are cute, would like hers too.

After looking one more time, I kind of like the guy with the snowflake at the end of his finger, and the guy skiing.

I have to admit that I've got a favorit... The snowman in front of the moon... I don't know if it will be easy to use but I find it wonderful!

These are all lovely. I am particularly drawn to the one in the moonlight.

Love the 'all'. I like the 'snow cone' and the snowman with the snowflake on his 'fingertip'.

OMG this are all awesome! Can we get a whole sheet with all of them????

WOW! They are all great, but I think my favourite has to be the snowman with the snowflake on his finger, he's just fab. I think the laughing mouth looks better without the stones. After another look I love the snowman ski-ing too :-)

i love the snowman in front of the moon and the two dancing snowpeople!

Sherry

LOL...you guys are all over the place. You're going to make this one difficult, aren't ya? Of course, if I had it my way, I'd have them all! :D

All are great and I would be happy with either but I sure love the one with the snowflake on his finger.

That one is my favorite, too, Paula. There is something magical about it.

ooh ooh, skier snowman for sure! Also, the boy with the ice cream snowman. CUTE>

I love them all too, but the one that stuck out to me the most was the dancing snowpeople.

They are all great. I love them all but I think my favorites are: 1. Snowman in moonlight 2. Snowflake on tip of finger. But, I do love Lana's snowmen too. Especially their legs and the snowman baby.

Well I love them all, Can we buy the whole set!!!! Ok if I have to narrow it down my favorites would be the kid with the cone, or the ski snowman with the sunglasses. Of course I also like Lana's versions too.

Oh and Sherry this shouldn't be hard, since we love them all, we are not going to be disappointed with any of them. Give them numbers and draw out of a hat if we don't come to a majority you can live with. Speaking for me I would be delighted with any of them!!!

I like the first one but maybe a little different on the mouth. I also think the sking one is ADORABLE!! I gotta say the snowcone kinda creeps me out!!

I love them all but my #1 pick is the one with the snowflake on his fingertip :)

I like the snowman in the moonlight the best...and it's different from anything I've seen anywhere...they are all great though...

teabear
08-03-2008, 08:05 PM
I just looked at them all again and want to add that I love Lana's snowmans. Especially I like the way she used white to draw them on a black background and the hats she made for them are wonderful designs.

I love the one in front of the moon and the 2 of them dancing! ... but I LOVE all of them ... how about all of them :)

Erin K
08-03-2008, 08:14 PM
They are all great. My #1 is the one with the kid and a snowmancone.

kimmyqtgirl
08-03-2008, 08:15 PM
I think Lana's is the cutest! But I do love them all. I can't decide everytime I look I am drawn to a different one!

tesschap
08-03-2008, 08:26 PM
My choices are # 5 and then #4 - although all of them are great :)

maxiesmom
08-03-2008, 08:29 PM
WOW!! Those are awesome!! My fav also is the one in moonlight, the his & hers are great as is the ice cream cone. The other 3 are equally cool(no pun intended!) last place would be the skier only because I don't ski.

Way to go, Paul, you completely ROCK!!

maxiesmom
08-03-2008, 08:31 PM
We may need to assign them all numbers and do a poll, they are that great. We may not all agree otherwise!

I hope I'm not offending anyone here, but you asked for our thoughts, so.....

First, I was hoping for one with two snowmen together holding hands or something -- maybe stamping --just kidding, (but not dancing), to represent Shack friends.

After having said that, I like the snowflake finger one BUT I wish he had more of a "stick" hand and a simpler mouth.

I also like the moon one, BUT wish the snowman was facing forward.

The two that struck me right away were the one with the snowflake on the tip of the finger, and the moonlight one--I haven't seen either idea before!

Wow this is a very hard decision since I love all of them. Everytime I pick one, then the other ones jump out at me and I like them. If I really really had to choose one, I would say the little boy with the ice cream cone snowpeople; then the snowman in front of the moon; the skier; the dancers; #1 smiling snowman and then the snowman with the snowflake on his finger. I don't particularly like the face on the snowflake on finger snowman. But actually I would love to see Lana's snowmen designs put to rubber. Is that snowman really playing with yo-yos?

The snowman/woman couple dancing!
Love that one!

I'm going to say my favorites are the one in the moonlight & the one skiing.

Snowman in front of the moon or the snowman with the snowflake on his finger. I like them both.

Snow cone.. hands down. It's so original! Love it.

I would have to say the snowman in front of the moon and then the snowman with the finger tip snowflake. But I do like them all! It's very hard to choose.

The little boy with the cone, its just the cutest I've seen. But then, why not a full sheet with all of them on there. Glinda

They are all great! I think I lean to the moonlight snowman!

Artyfarty
08-04-2008, 03:17 AM
Difficult to choose one but I too am drawn to the ice cream cone lol but then again they all fab...

frankiesue
08-04-2008, 03:51 AM
wow they're all great but my favourite has to be the MOONLIGHT one (I had to go back and take a double look at it!).

kimmyqtgirl
08-04-2008, 04:13 AM
Ok after looking and looking I narrowed it down. My favorites are the 1st one with his arms out, and the one with the snowflake.

I like the snowman in the moonlight best. I'm sure you could sell all of these no problem at all

I like the two snowpeople together.

scraphappy908
08-04-2008, 06:57 AM
They are all fantastic! I'm siding with either the snowman with the snowflake on his finger or the moonlight snowman.

I'm with Kim, can we have the whole sheet? Of course being from Florida, I LOVE the one skiing with the sunglasses on.

tesschap
08-04-2008, 07:32 AM
I think the whole sheet is a great idea. I'd buy it too.

I love the snowman in the moonlight and the first one, with snowflakes falling all around him. My other favs are all the rest.
