Snowman family

Good afternoon folks. Thought today would be quite decent weather wise but its raining and miserable here. 
Anyway down to business, here is today's card.
I used one of the stamps I got from LOTV last week. They are so cute, I just had to buy it even if I do have enough Christmas stamps!



In the spirit of Yorkshire thrift I used the leftover paper from my Humphrey card plus a part sheet of blue mirror board I found in the cupboard. Don't tell but it wasn't quite big enough, so I cut the middle out of the larger Happy Christmas paper backing to use under the white snowflake paper. It also cuts down on the weight. Stripey ribbon from the stash and snowflakes from some scraps and a couple of die punches complete the card. Image coloured in Copics and background inked over a mask of the image in Tim Holtz ' Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans' The snow is just Cosmic shimmer white acrylic glue and the hats and snow have added Stickle twinkle.



I used this sketch from Sketch n Stash as inspiration and I shall be entering today's card in their challenge, as well as the Ribbon Girl's LOTV challenge -with stripes A Creative Romance- Winter Blues, Penny Black and more- Anything goes, Addicted to stamps and more - Photo inspiration and Crafty Little Fairies - Christmas in November. 

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. As it’s something I really don’t like doing for a whole comment will admit to this being a copy and paste one because I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely creation and thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.
