It's that snowman again


Isn't it funny that I have used this stamp twice since I bought it at Doncaster yet I have other stamps I bought ages ago and haven't used yet. I decided to paper piece his umbrella and coloured the rest with Copices   I coloured the sky with chalks and used a new MFT mini cloud stencil. The papers are LOTV Nitwits 'Twas the Night. I used a stitched square die from The Works and Marianne snowflake dies. The sentiment is one of the new LOTV ones. I added some fun flock mixed with glitter on the snow and used a Viva pearl pen.

I am so glad the weather is a bit cooler as I feel more like colouring again. I have missed it and am really hoping the temperatures don't get so high again. The highest we recorded in our car one day was 36.5 and it was unbearable.  The garden has really benefited from some welcome rain at the weekend and start of this week.
