Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge # 76 Snowmen

Hello everyone. I do hope your Christmas card stash is growing ready to send out to loved ones.

The theme for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge this week is a cheerful snowman.
New Zealand Christmas's are in the middle of summer so a snowman Christmas card is rarely seen here.
They are such adorable characters so it was great to have the opportunity to make a snowman card.

For my card I made a snowman using Spellbinders circles with a wee bit of drawing and inking. Couldn't resist adding a fabric scarf.






Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Lots of Hearts
Dies: Spellbinders small Circles. Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Inks: Versamagic and Memento.
The background Merry Christmas strip was made in Publisher.

I made another card without the fabric scarf.

Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to seeing your snowmen creations.
Karen

Hi Karen! Your snowman is a kick! And you brought him to life yourself! I vote for the fabric scarf (made one myself!)
Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog.
