Snowman Freinds

I have another snowman card to share with you.  This is the cute LOTV stamp and I've coloured with my Copics then added flaky glitter and pearl falling flakes.

Now, before I show you the card, I have to say that it's not one of my best and I actually thought about ditching it .. .. but, the paper is Marianne Design and has been stuck down on the card base for a year - waiting!  And I am determined to use up those started but not finished bits and pieces and the boxes of odds and ends.  So, here is the card:

I think it's the colour that puts me off - I don't associate brown with Christmas!  I tried lightening things up with extra bright white Marianne Design die cut snowflakes too.  And then there was that tree .. .. I recently got the two new MD tree dies and had this one cut out from a dark kraft card as an experiment - and I hate to throw anything away.  So I covered it with the flaky glitter too and popped it in behind my picture.  It's growing on me and I guess some folks like brown!

There's lots of challenges with Christmas themes so I'm going to enter my cute snowman into the Allsorts blog, Winter Wonderland, and the ABC Christmas blog who are up to the letter 'V' for very cute - he is a very cute snowman!


  1. It's a great colour combo Annie and what a great tree. The snowman is very cute indeed, together with the robins actually so a perfect card for ABC Christmas this time. Thank you for joining us xx

  2. I can't get the photo with your card to pull up but the image is very cute. Brown (kraft) is hard for me to but I love what I can see of those snowflakes. Thanks for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge. Lisa DT
