Angel Snowman


Hoping you are all well ?, i am, but i did have a slight accident on Monday, i was posting a letter in the village post box, when suddenly i fell on my bottom and whilst falling over, banged my head again the brick wall - i gained a big bump on my head and then had to contact a friend who kept checking on me, till Alan was able to get home.

Many of you may know that i have a soft spot for Snowmen and when i spotted this cutie / oldie, i knew i had to have it : Penny Black - 'Angel Snowman / 242K / 1997', the papers are : Doodlebug - 'Frosty Friends', the punched edges are : MS - 'Icicles and Snowflakes', the sentiment is : Whimsy - 'Holiday Mini Postage Stamp', the snowflake is : Marianne Designs - 'LR0125' - the sentiment and snowflake are covered in : Stampin' Up - 'Heat And Stick Powder, then Dazzling Diamonds', the silver pearls are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Sparkles Christmas - where Challenge No: 68 is 'Angels or Fairies' - I know it's not your conventional Fairy or Angel, but that the stamp say's it's 'Angel Snowman' 

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'A Sketch or Tic Tac Toe' - i went for : Snowflake, Sparkle or Shine, Punch or Diecut

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - where Challenge 'CHNC 300 is Add A Sentiment' 

September Rudolph Day's Challenge  - the lovely Mo organises a Christmas Card Challenge, starting 25th of the month and ending on it's last day

Pixies Snippets Playground  - where the lovely Di is up to Week No: 248

ABC Christmas - where they are up to 'T is for Two' - i've gone for : two Snowmen - one on the main image and one on the sentiment, two different punches - icicles and snowflakes, two different glitters - Stickles on the image and Stampin' Up heat and stick, dazzling diamonds on the sentiment and snowflake 

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
