My Snowman Friend

Good morning from a very windy Cornwall! although the morning is not quite so good for me as I was up most of the night with horrendous tooth problems .. .. so tomorrow afternoon I will overcome my fear of needles in my mouth and get my four lower incisors pulled out! Well, one final broke off a couple months back after a little accident last summer, and the others are all loose so should come out easy enough! and the pain in the jaw up by my ear might be due to a hair-line fracture from the previous incident .. .. and infection - so I may be absent for a wee while feeling very sorry for myself.  I do have my CCT DT cards made for the next few challenges so will try to get them ready to go.

Back to today's card then.  Another cute snowman from LOTV coloured with my Copics. I am looking forward to seeing the new Christmas designs that LOTV will be bringing out - some retail therapy might just help out!  Here's the card:

It's a simple layout relying on the pretty paper from the Marianne Design special Christmas pack for interest.  I've die cut a mat for my image, cut and inked a few snowflakes, and die cut the text, then kept things fairly flat with just 1mm foam tape to fix my image to the base and pop up the bottom snowflake - it should fit through the narrow slot at the Post Office.  The die cuts are all by Marianne Design, of course - Text from LR0225, mat from CR1248, snowflakes from LR0123, CR1225 and CR1226.

The new Christmas Card Challenge is anything goes so I can enter with my snowman friend.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you will come back again soon.  I will, if all goes well, be back on Thursday with my CCT card to share with you.
