Snowman Melt Your Heart


I wasn't going to make another Christmas card quite so soon, but as there were several Christmas Challenges around and as i managed to get this very unusual stamp ( the date on it is 1998) from a well known auction site and yes when i saw it, it did 'Melt My Heart', it did also suit the sketch very well and what a great way to use some of my brads.
