Snowman All Right?

Morning everyone!  Just a quick post.  Think I'm taking two steps forward and one back re my headache, hurts a lot again today though generally not as bad as it was.  Think it is improving but slowly, though at the docs anyway today to see if my blood pressures come down!!  Will have to see how things go and decide tomorrow if I'm gonna go back to work on Thursday!!

Anyway, I got a little card for you today, gosh it feels a while since I've done one of those LOL!  I've used one of my favourite snowman stamps.  He looks like he's been having fun in the snow!!  This card will be entered into the following challenges, and my first time for all of them;

Sketch Saturday - Sketch

I've used embossing folders and my SIL's cuttlebug - still can't decide whether to treat myself to a CB or bigshot!!  The card candy and sentiment was in my stash and used a snowflake punch - I think it was by woodware!  Colouring mediums used were copics and watercolour pencils.  The "relaxed snowman" from Hampton Arts was glittered with glamour dust and white flower soft applied for a nice snowy effect!

Thankyou for stopping by my blog.  Take care and happy crafting!

Your 'relaxed snowman' made me laugh, Mel.
He is so cute!!
You have done a great job with this white theme.
I'd love to be able to get half as good a result.
