Frosty Snowman

Well it seems that my blogger connection isn't much better today than it was yesterday. I think I only managed to comment on a couple of blogs and that with a lot of persistence and repeating myself! I've managed to load some card pictures for the next few days but keep getting error reports - there's another one popped up now! Is it just me that' fallen out with blogger .. ..?

I'd best keep this short and sweet - this is another of Kim's snowmen and I wanted to try him out with kraft card, but kept to printing the image onto my usual white coated card. The layout is the sketch from the Sketch Saturday blog with a little piece of digi printed paper from the Quilted Holly collection. I've inked the edges of everything with Versamagic Jumbo Java chalk ink as I didn't want the white cores to be showing. The buttons and border are cut with Nellie Snellen dies and I've finished with gold gross grain ribbon, gold twine tied in the buttons and little red gems.

This time I found my scribbled list of Copic colours: the snowman's hat and coat are coloured with E21, E31, 35, and 39. The greens are YG91, 93, 95 and 97 whilst the reds are R05 and E08. For the gold colours I used YR21, 23 and 24 then finished with a haze of BG000, BG0000 and B0000 plus a little sparkle on the snowballs and snow.

I'm busy downloading the government documents for the probate and have to take them with me tomorrow to sort out some things with my Mum; so I'll be away for a few days but fingers crossed Mr blogger will show you the rest of my snowy cards.


  1. Good to know I'm not the only one with the troubles of trying to get a message on someone elses blog!
    Love your Snowman!!!

  2. Lots of lovely creations to enjoy on your blog since my last visit, Annie. Everytime I've seen a Christmas card in the last few weeks I think I must start mine but it is a hard thing to do when the sun is shining at last and I'm in my shorts! Love your Mr & Mrs Frosties! Super cards, lovely layouts and pretty colourwork! Hope you and Mum are doing okay! Hugs, Lesley

  3. This is adorable Annie. I love the wooden buttons.

  5. I've also fallen out with Blogger & been repeating myself - despite using Safari to browse!! Shall be thinking of you with probate, not an easy one so take care of yourself in the midst of that. Love the checked border with the reds & the way you've highlighted with theose red gems. The kraft is terrific with the white & I love the way that ribbon knot sits in the corner of the image panel.
