Merry Little Snowman

Design Team Favorite at Tuesday Morning Sketches

Coffee of the Day - Irish Creme

A new challenge is starting over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra (I'm posting early due to the time difference) as well as it's Oldie But Goodie day on the Bugaboo challenge and inspiration blog. so you get a two-fer from me today! :)

I am using the ever adorable 'Chibi Snowman' image on my card, printed directly onto kraft cardstock. isn't he such a cutie?! :)

papers are from the Basic Grey 25th and Pine collection, satin ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and snowflake corner die is by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. main die is by Spellbinders.

doily was sprayed with glimmer mist, snow on main image was covered in frosted stickles, and little snow drops were created with a Viva Decor pearl pen. I used a white chalk pencil to color the snowman. more sparkly accents were added with my spica clear glitter pen.

little holly piece is vintage as are the buttons. sentiment was generated on the label maker. sorry it's a bit hard to see.

thanks for stopping by! my crafty posts will be a bit further apart, I'm afraid. have left most of my Design Teams due to some health issues I'm having. hope a bit of rest will get me back on my feet in  a few months. :)

until then you'll see me a few times a week, I hope. :)
