Sweet Little Snowmen!

Good afternoon, firstly welcome to all of the lovely new followers I have, I really appreciate you popping over here to see my blog. I will of course, return the compliment!

I have had a lovely day crafting and sorting out my stamp boxes. I love Sundays in our house, the girlies go off and do their own thing, David gets on with DIY and gardening and I get left to myself to play, how lucky am I, lol? I am also having dinner cooked for me this evening, first time in about a month!

Saying that, I have only managed to make two and a half cards today. One completed DT, one half finshed DT and this 'Little Snowman' one. I really love the colour scheme, I wasn't too sure about it when I first saw the challenge blog, but now I have made this, I love them together!

I have entered my card into the following challenges :

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - 'Purple, Cream & Brown'.
Paper Sundae Challenge - 'Mixed Medium's'

My Card : Penny Black 'Snow Family' Image, Brown, Purple & Cream Bazzill Cardstock, Hero Arts Sentiment, MS Snowflake Punch, Corner Punch, Brown & Cream Card Candy, Cosmic Shimmer. I have coloured my image with Promarkers & Copics and have used Cream Bazzill Bling and Brown & Purple Bazzill cardstock, so have mixed two lots of mediums. My card is quite 'clean & simple', no papers just for a change. I have decoupaged the snowflakes and the image is on sticky foam pads to give it the 3d look.

Have a large ironing mountain to climb later this evening, lol! Enjoy your evening and thanks for dropping by my blog.
