Snowman is Lili of the Valley.  Papers - Bo Bunny.  Sentiment - Pink Gem.  Entered this card for the Friday Sketchers 133.


Realised I needed to make extra Christmas cards today after I tidied all my seasonal crafting goodies away!  Managed to find my favourite snowman though!  He's coloured with ProMarkers (what did I do before I discovered ProMarkers?)  The background is made with my other crafting favourite, the Cuttlebug.  The snowman paper is a remnant left over from last year from Basic Grey.
