Mr Snowman

Good Afternoon everyone, 

I hope you are all having a good weekend. We went to York Maze yesterday. There was quite a group of us, 35 children and 20 adults!! We had a lovely day even though it was absolutely freezing. It took quite a while to defrost when we got home! Then we had a rare treat and managed a night out while my Dad babysat for us! Another night out tonight too, to a local bonfire and firework display...it's all go!! It does mean I haven't had chance to visit you all over the last couple of days but I will catch up soon!Anyway, today's card is a quickie. I've used 'Mr Snowman' from Lili of the Valley
I've coloured him with my promarkers and added lots of glitter. I've used a Marianne creatables die for tress and added glitter to them too!
The background paper is from Craft Creations. I've finished off with a bow and a snowflake charm.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Lillies Little Fairies - Snow is Falling
Sweet Stampin Challenge - All that Glitters
Make it Monday - Linky Party

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your lovely comments. I promise to visit you all soon. Have a good weekend.

Lovely card Lorraine! Great snowman. Hope you are now thawed out. It's nice to have some social activity - only problem I find is that it all comes at once then you are a stay-at-home for ages again. Christine x
