Lili of the Valley's 'Mr Snowman' :-)

I am late  for the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge ,,:-(   My laptop was in for repair ,,, there was lots of clanking and whirring goings on and I was worried that it was going to be irreparable ,, but no ,,, it was just full of cat fur !!! ooh err ,, how embarrassing was that ! he even saved the evidence to show me ,,,, :-/  I couldn’t get out of the shop quick enough ,,, LOL

Anyways ,, the theme this week is ,,,

PASTEL SHADES :-)

Our lovely boss Jacqui is providing the prize this week so if you are the lucky winner you will get to choose 2 stamps from LOTV !! :-) 

I have just bought this very cute Mr Snowman stamp so I inked him up :-)

I coloured with Copics and added Star Dust Stickles and Viva Decor Ice White Pearl pen dots for snow.  I stamped a background using an Impression Obsession Gradation stamp, Versafine ink and embossed with white EP.  I then used tumbled Glass DI over the top, I think the poor snowman is is a blizzard there  :-)
The ‘silver’  card for layering was made using plain white card, Pumice Stone DI and Perfect Pearls brushed over the top, so lovely and shimmery IRL.  I used a Martha Stewart Icicle Punch ( now discontinued) and  made a strip using Whitewash Coredinations  and a Swiss Dots Folder. 


I used a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Mod Tree, this was inked with Iced Spruce DI and I added some snowflakes from an EK Success Border punch and a Memory Box Star of Wonder glittered star on the top , I  used a MB Flurry Wreath Stamp and Flurry Wreath Die cut and finished with some Swiss Dots Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to see them :-)
I have a lovely Simon Says Stamp December ‘Everything Is Merry  Card Kit to give away at the top of my blog if you would like a chance to win it ! :-)

Lovely card, I have just bought this image and not inked it up yet, hope mine looks half as nice as yours and I will be well happy.
On the subject of the laptop, we bought a compressed air can from the internet (wasn't expensive) and about four times a year we open our pc's and laptops and give it a blow outside on the patio. It is amazing the rubbish that comes out and it seems to make them run so much better, it would save you money taking it to be repaired aswell.
