Another Snowman?

First time ever I've used this Snowman stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller. Cute and whimsical I think, so I've added quite a lot of mirco glitter to make it sparkle, then fitted it to two scallop circles cut by my Nesties, and coloured the image as always (well, nearly always!) with Promakers.
I've cut off a tiny bit of the edge of the card with my Xcut scalloped edge boarder punch, so you can just see a glimpse of the paper inside the card too. On the front of the card I also let a little bit of the pearl card show to emphasize the scalloped edge. Papers are once more from Forever Friends, which I've added Stickles Glitter, to make those springs of holly sparkle.
The Merry Christmas sentiment is from a clear pack of 12 assorted Christmasy what-knots-thinga-me-jigs by Papermania (including a tag and sentiments) I did punch it out with my woodware punch, but it left too much white around the edge so I ended up cutting it out and fixing it to a smaller scalloped Nestie circle too. MS punch for the fern leaves. Flowers, gems and ribbon from my stash. The ribbon was put through one of those X shaped sticky labelling gizmo's, so it's stuck on too, and the bow is a bit of a cheat as I fixed that on afterwards using silicon glue! Oh and the Candy 'brads' came in a packet of about 400 mixed shades from my 'local' (miles away) craft shop.
The inside font was done on the computer and is a freebie. It's called A Yummy Apology and you can download it HERE Not sure where the little wreath sticker came from, it suddenly appeared while I was taking the pictures, so of course I just had to stick it in! I'll be giving this card to my Mum and dad this year.
New Followers... (Hi and a big wave) to Dragonflydreamz1..... out the back and in the dark with no blog link yet and Sarah with a New Blog called Crafting with Sarah, so pop over and say hi!
Hope you're not snowed in... I'm now off to clear the snow from my car and (aagghh!!) try and get to work!! (What's the betting I'll turn round and come home again?? Update...No I didn't ,I got there ok and only had one tiny slide ) It's not the main roads, it's the side roads, they are soooo slippery! And people, mainly ladies, (sorry but that's what I've noticed!!) have no idea how to drive in the snow!! Like the rest of us, huge 4x4's will not stop in the snow if you're driving too fast and slam your brakes on!! Low speed, high gear!! Ok! I'm such a scaredy cat!! Thank you for stopping by...

  16. Sorry I beat you to it. I was really shocked to be the first. Your desk looks much more ready to create than mine does at the moment. I still have 2 cards to finish off and two to make from scratch. Then I have to put together some crafting goodies for our grandaughter's Christmas present.

    have a lovely Christmas.XX
