For Me There Will Only Ever Be 1 Snowman


As the title say's 'for me there will only ever be 1 snowman' and i have been neglecting him lately - but that has all changed with this card and i'm so happy with the way he has turned out too - i did use a sketch for him, but i was to late to enter !!!

I'm entering 'Snowy' for :

Hello Sam

What a darling of a card, and like you I love snowmen. Your card is gorgeous. The mix of blues blend so well together and make for a magical wintry feeling. Your snowman is gorgeous and I love his scarf and sparkly hat.

Thank you so much for joining in our latest challange.

Hi Sam

I think you can be forgiven for neglecting your snowman during the summer months. I am sure he receives enough love during the winter months to make up for it. LOL!!

Your card is gorgeous as is your snowman.

Beautiful colours and great layout.

Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.

Love Jules xx

I have a gazillion snowmen stamps but don't have this one. Might have to keep an eye out for it 'cos he's really cute lol. Love the papers and how you have punched the icicle edges. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
