Hello Everyone..

Another Snowy Saturday post with MISS DAISY STAMPS  and believe me when I tell is sooo hot here in NZ today, with strong westerly winds..[which makes it hotter]..and I'm doing a snowy post.. but maybe it will cool me down some...

I'm using the freebie that was available last week and had so much fun with him...if you didn't grab him you can always pop over to the store HERE  and pick him up.

This is"YOU HAVE MY HEART SNOWMAN   and I used him on a tissue box that a client gave was shaped like a house and perfect for playing with...


There he is, standing outside his tissue box house giving his heart to you all.[ Sentiment also from Miss Daisy, I just made it into a sign post..

I used the masking tape again for a wooden cottage look and punched 1/4 "circles for the roof tiles..

And made sure to leave the gap open for the smoke [tissues] to pop out..and added lots of texture paste for snow and splatterings of white paint...

Marianne Creatables  trees embossed with the swiss dot folder..and the fences with their dustings of snow...the door and hearts with brad door handle..the scene is set..

Another view with the open door..

So that was a fun project and have another tissue box house to play with but maybe for a Spring time project..

Thanks so much for stopping by...see you tomorrow..

I adore your little snowman house! How delightful to have tissue boxes shaped like houses - makes life much more fun, and great for crafters too! I love how you've got the tissue coming out like smoke from a chimney and the masking tape wood effect is fantastic , and the little chap himself is cute as can be!

This is sooo cute, Chrissy! What a fab idea to create a scene around this house shaped tissue box, and the tissue popping out looks like smoke from a chimney. Love this sweet and well designed scene!
