Jolly, Jolly Snowman!

Wednesday, 30 November 2011
Hello, I hope everyone is keeping well.  Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, it's so nice to know that people are still will me despite my recent lack of cards.

I have made another card tonight to share with you all.  I was sat on my laptop when I suddenly told myself to get off my backside and make a card - so I did!!  I made it with this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge in mind.  When I saw it on Saturday, I knew I had to take part.  For those that haven't checked, it's Christmas + Red & Embossing..  You all know how I love my red and white Christmas cards which always have an embossed background.  Add that to my love of Penny Black stamps and you have a perfect combo!  What better stamp could I use other than trust old Snowy himself! I've only had him a year, but I LOVE him!!  He's such a joy to colour.

 I apologies about the poor photos.  The only decent time for me to photograph at the moment is the weekend as it's dark when I leave for work in the morning and virtually dark when I get home.  Oh for those long summer days again!

His bobble & fur trim have had the usual glamour dust treatment.  It wouldn't be a Christmas card without a bit of sparkle! He's been coloured with my trusty copics.  The embossing folders are snow dots and snowflakes.

I'm going to go and have a look at what you've all been up to now. Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Sarah this is absolutely super cute, that snowman image is such a delight all cuddled up in that hat and scarf and he still has a beautiful smile, the brilliant white with that hint of red is pure perfection.

    Hi honey, just been having a little catch up with your blog, so sorry to hear about Bozzy *hugs* such sad news :( Loved seeing your collection of stamps - wow you have so many (wood mounted stamps, especially Penny Black are not cheap either!!) Your cards are all so cute & lovely....makes me want to buy some 'image' stamps now!
    You take care, love Steph xxx

  1. Stunning card Sarah! Red and white looks so elegant for Christmas cards and I love all the sparkliness. Beautiful colouring with your copics too - you are such a whizz at using them.
