Frosty The Snowman..............

Hello all of my lovelies how are you all? Those poorly I wish you better soon. I know I've been MIA a little bit but there is so much to do I really dont know where the hours are I'm sure most of you are the same.
Anyway I've made another crimbo card, well it was over the weekend & its for a friend, a lovely special person.......didnt go flat on this one.......
I've had this stamp for a little over a year & finally he has seen some ink, I forgot I had him & only found him the other day........I want the other snowmen now tho lol......

Isn't he just THE cutest snowman, he's just lush & I so enjoyed colouring him. The image of course is Magnolia & that along with the sentiment stamps I got from Sir Stamp A Lot (last year).

Sentiments were cut out using my tag punch & I edged with white acrylic. The sentiments were stamped in cocoa memento & added a tiny pearl to each tag.
Flowers are from WOC & stickled a wee bit.

The paper I cant remember what it is as its from last years supply of crimbo paper. I went round the edge using 'Snow' paint dabber to make it look like a sprinkling of snow. All papers have been matted onto Kraft card which was also edged with Vintage Photo.

The image was of course stamped onto Kraft card & coloured with Prisma pencils, I look the look of pencils on kraft card. I've added stardust stickles to his snowflake & the fur on his hat. I also added spots of white enamel paint to act like snow drops & a little bit along the bottom.

Added 'Jute' ribbon & some lace & pearls from my stash. All A4 card used was from Papermill Direct.

I'm gonna have a quick peek see what challenges are about, I just dont seem to have time to look at the challenges at the min so its a case of looking after I've made the card lol.

Will catch up with you all tonight my lovelies. Thank you so much for stopping by I really appreciate every single visit I know how busy everyone is.........please dont feel as tho you have to comment I know its the busiest time of year
Huge squishy warm hugs to everyone mmwah xoxoxox
