Snoesjes and the Snowman

I treated myself to the new winter Snoesjes stamps at Buddly Crafts, this is Snoesjes and the snowman.
 I've coloured with my Copic pens, added a touch of sparkle around the edge of my die cut image and used Viva Decor 3D snow for the falling flakes .. .. they are mat and not quite what I wanted so I think I will go back to using a pearl maker pen instead.  The fake snow will come in useful for some other projects, I'm sure, it is quite thick so I'm thinking 3d work .. .. on home decor creations for Christmas with glitter added whilst still wet to bling it up a bit - we'll see!

Here is my card, it's a simple one as I'm still under the weather somewhat:

I've die cut my base with a Frilly #10 die and the paper too - it's from the Cozy Christmas A5 pack and I've added ink and glitter around the edge.  It looks like several different pieces, but is actually just one, trying to keep things flat here (but that went out the window at the end with the bow!).

I've decorated with a few die cuts and some punched fronds, and the ribbon.  These are the MD dies I used:

snowflake, lamppost, tree and little deer all from the same set COL1330
a few little leaves from the new die CR1336

At Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge the theme is things beginning with 'S', I have snowman and snow and a touch of sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look - I've got a recurrence of Vertigo after too much bending and weeding in the garden yesterday.  My neighbour kindly offered to weed the road side of the fence, not a job I was capable of doing, and consequently I felt I had to tidy up the border inside the fence .. .. so spent the whole afternoon bending over. Hopefully once my neck settles down and I get a better blood supply back to my ears, the ground will stop swaying beneath my feet!  Enjoy the rest of your day, and hope the sun is still shining for you - I think it might be coming back out this afternoon in Cornwall .. .. ..
