Friends and family ... look away now!

I haven't made a card all week, I've had a real stinker of a cold, so this is me getting inky today thanks to some new goodies delivered by my Postie this morning :)

I've jumped on the 'Snowy' bandwagon for my Christmas cards this year .... Normally I make a rake of cards and then it's a mad last minute panic to get my own made so I'm getting ahead of the game this year.  I've loved the Penny Black snowman cards I've seen, so probably all the cards I'll be sending from me this year will be a variation on this snowman / background theme.

Coloured with watercolour pencils; sparkle added to the pink bits on his hat/scarf/snowflake and then clear gloss and lots of glitter to his hat.  Snowy popped up on foam pads.

  1. Fabulous card! I love this chubby snowman, and how you've colored his scarf and hat (and the snowflake) pink. You've made a perfect little winter scene.

I hope you're feeling much better now and I'm really pleased that you've used the lovely Penny Black stamp on your entry - perfect!
