Sweet Snowman


Here I am back with my second card today and although I have left Winter Wonderland I shall still be making Christmas cards all year round. I have wanted this stamp for ages and was so pleased to get it on eBay for just over £1 plus postage.

Image - Penny Black Sweet Snowman
Medium - Copics
Papers - Bo Bunny Rejoice
Dies - MS snowflakes
Other - pearls, Stickles

Challenges
Craftyhazelnut's extra Anything Christmas goes 
As you can see I finally got my blog sorted. I had removed the old background which was an image rather than an HTML code but it was still showing so I had to change the template. Of course I then spent ages fiddling with the font and colours but I am really pleased with it as it is a complete change to the purple.

I still have some stamps for sale, please see my for sale page. I will clear the page soon so don't delay as I will be taking them to my next craft fair.
