Snow is Falling!!

It has been freezing in our neck of the woods today and, can you believe that there has been the threat of snow?? I must admit that I was thinking 'fat chance' until my hubby received a text from his friend in Peterborough (which is not all that far from us) to say that they woke up to snow this morning. Then this afternoon we had a MASSIVE hail storm.  Talk about an overnight change!!

So, since winter is clearly on it's way and Christmas is less than two months away (aaarrghhhh!!!), I thought it was time to get the snowman out!!

This stamp (from Stamp Addicts) is pretty big as you can see from the card, but it has remarkably little colouring which is always a bonus when you have a lot of Christmas cards to make.

I have kept this card really simple, colouring the snowman with Promarkers and mounting on to a scalloped card which I have distressed with ink, before adding some red ribbon for that festive feel.

Here are the lovely challenges that I am entering this card in to.......

  7. What a great shaped card! I like how you've arranged the ribbon on this card, and the snowman image is beautifully colored. I like it being big and take up most of the space on this card - gives a lovely clean design. I spotted your card on MIM...
