Midweek Magnolia's DT Card - Frosty The Snowman

Good morning everyone how are you all? I'm running late as I've been trying to catch up on some commenting. I'm really not well but I still want to craft cus it takes my mind off it a bit tbh, I wont go into detail yet tho, but this is also the reason why I'm so behind in commenting.
Also a certain little kitty wants to sit on my arms every time I'm on my laptop lol.......try typing where you can only move your hands lol. It takes me ages with spelling mistakes cus I keep catching wrong keys & then having to delete & correct lol.

Anyhoo enough moaning & babbling onto my card as we have a new challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's & this week our theme is.................

So we want to see a christmas tree on your creation somewhere.
I have used my favourite ever snowman image............I so love this stamp :0)
This feel just makes me smile, he's such a sweetie ;0)
The initial inspiration for this card design came from the lovely Mindy with this card she did here.
I told her I was gonna pinch ahem I mean borrow the idea lol ;0)

This is the inside of the card, I have added a Magnolia tag which slides behind the image with a sentiment & you can write your message inside.
I stamped him onto smooth kraft card & coloured him with Prisma pencils. I added a snowflake as well just so it would stand out a bit better. Also added Marianne christmas trees.

The Noel word I cut out of another piece of paper from this pad & set it on top of the original as the frame hid some of it.
Added Marianne Reindeer, Holly & a Prima Flower. Everything got the Stickle treatment.

I also added pearl dots with a Gold Pearl Pen. The small pom pom trim is from my stash.

I actually made this card nearly 2 weeks ago & all I had to do was add an image & a couple of bits inside which worked out well at the moment lol.

Ingredients used........
Frosty The Snowman - Magnolia
Magnolia So Wrapped Tag die
MME 'Lost & Found Christmas' papers - MCH
Viva Decor Gold Pearl Pen - MCH
 Marianne Holly Die - MCH
Prima Cabaletta Fabric Flower - MCH
Marianne reindeer die
Marianne Christmas Tree die
Stardust Stickles - MCH

Please pop on over to see my uber talented teamies creations, you wont be disappointed believe me.
Well I'm off to do some more catching up. I would like to welcome my new follower & say thank you so much for being here mmwah.
Thank you to everyone for stopping by it really means a lot my lovelies.

Your card is hilarious, I love it so much and honestly: if anyone doesn't want that her/his ideas are copied, well then they don't have to post it!! We all get inspiration from the net and as long as we are decent and tell where we get the idea from, it's ok!
