All New Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #91 - Use a Snowman on your Christmas card.

Well! You all found your way to the new blog and we had wonderful turn out for the last challenge. While I will miss going to Always Playing With Paper and having Lesley's gorgeous cards before and after the Merry Monday  Challenge, it is nice to have a dedicated blog. 
This week we have snowmen on our cards again. Yey!! Such delightful wee characters. I adore the stitched ones on the inspiration photo.


 I coloured my snowman with markers in taupes (love!) and green, with tich of orange on his nose, and a tad of maroon on his buttons. My card is very simple (for me). I desperately wanted to ADD!! BUT......................it just didn't seem to need it, or probably more to the point, I didn't know what else to add. You be the judge :-)



Stamps: Lawn Fawn Sentiment (Let it Snow Set), Digital Snowman KD
Die: Lil' Inker Stitched rectangle, Memory Box Frosted Christmas tree
Ink: Versafine Black, Markers
Card: Neenah white and Cascard dark green, Prima Delight for the Christmas trees
Embellishments: Pearls and White Glitter

That's it from me.
See you in a weeks time.
Take care.
Karen D
