Do you wanna build a snowman?


It's my turn to host the new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and I have chosen "Do you wanna build a snowman". Regular readers will know I love snowmen and I love to encourage people to make their Christmas cards early. I tend to colour images like this in non traditional colours so I challenged myself to use red and green instead.
Image - Pink Gem Angelica with snowman
Medium - Copics
Papers - LOTV Festive Trimmings
Dies - Doohickey slender firs, MFT pierced rectangles
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons

Challenges 
ABC Christmas Q for quantum leap (choose a previous challenge - C for colourful)

What a sweet image Marianne, I really do need to take a leaf out of your book and get on with mine, trouble is I have been making them since May to go off for samples and fed up with by the time it comes to my own.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Well, as you saw, I certainly did want to build a snowman! I wonder if we will have snow this year?! I would rather keep the snow just on cards to be honest!
The image you used is really sweet and the vibrant colours are lovely :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
