The Perfect Snowman ,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all well and almost ready for Christmas ,, I am just about to pop the puddings onto the stove to steam, then head into my craft room to mass produce some quick and easy cards ,,,, bit last min’ eh ! :-)

We have a new theme starting over on the Lili’s Little Fairies challenge,,,

so New Baby, New Job, or use a new product or 3

I have recently bought this cute ‘The Perfect Snowman’ stamp from Lili of the Valley and  inked it up ! :-)

I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI. I used Glitter Ritz Opaque White Glitter on the ground ,, I love that this looks like real snow, and I also used Star Dust stickles around the edges and on the holly. The papers are  Digi’s  from Pink Petticoat  and I used a new Memory Box Frosty Border die. I finished with some Saddle Stitch ribbon, some Melissa Frances White Pearls and then used a  Viva Ice White Pearl pen to make snowflakes on the image.

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)

Edited to add ,,, I just popped by my dear friend 'Dorte's' blog and saw that this card is practically a copy of hers !! It was totally unintentional and I just didn't realise ! I should have done cos we are on the same DT !!!   GREAT card Dorte :-)  Please pop over to  Dorte's blog too and see what a gorgeous card she made HERE :-)

Challenges :
C.R.A.F.T ,,,, Winter
Charisma Cardz ,,, Christmas Makes
Dutch Dare ,,,, Snowflakes

Hi Lols,
