A SMILEY SNOWMAN


Hello Everyone..or this time I can say good morning as I ususally post at night time..but I had such a good play over the weekend I thought I would do a post this morning..

I picked up the cutest freebie Snowman from Spyder[Lyn] and had to play with him straight away..

Meet "Smiley the Snowman"



Too cute..and such a fun card to put together..lots of layers and used soft grey copics for colouring..
Papers are Couture creations "Jolly Christmas".3 layers...corrugated card and glitter for the snow...Marianne Trees and punched snowflakes all with lashings of glitter.





There's the side view and little bits of gauze poked in here and there...

The sentiment was stamped onto vellum and heat embossed in white glitter embossing powder...the rest of the container went onto the floor...[ahem]..added a punched Holly branch and some red pearls for berries.



And a nice blurry shot to show the dimension of his hat and scarf..

Challenge to enter...
