Traditional Snowman

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for my Sugar Nellie bag and tag.

I'm a bit late posting my DT card for Totally Gorjuss this week as I was out all day yesterday and have been out today as well finishing off the Christmas shopping and sorting out a few queries on the I Pad, which I absolutely love. Our challenge is Let it Snow and one lucky winner will win £10 to spend at Crafter's Companion. I've used a lovely traditional snowman stamp from Joanna Sheen which has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I love doodling and doodled some faux stitching on the backing paper which is from a sample pack from Crafty Emma's Store. I was going to add a paper from DCWV but it didn't look right so I just cut the large snowflake out of the paper and added a brad. The snowflake border was cut with an MS punch, some wooden snowflakes and Crafty Bitz sentiment to finish. Hubby is downstairs wrapping up my Christmas pressies whilst I am up in my Craftroom. He had a wish list, which included a few crafty bits, so here's hoping for some new goodies on Christmas Day.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments. I appreciate them so much especially at this very busy time of year. I am doing my best to keep up with commenting as much as I can and am now down to 7 Christmas cards to make. At least the others are all written and mostly posted. Last ones to go in the post tomorrow. Others will be hand delivered. Hope your preparations are going well.
Challenges:
Joanna Sheen Christmas wishes
Kaboodle Doodle Colours of Christmas
