Crafty Calendar, Stamp Something & Stampavie & More

Still making Christmas cards although it's too late to send them - I'm now working on the principal I will be well prepared for next year. I managed to fit in three challenges with this card - Crafty Calendar wants sparkle, Stamp Something is Holiday somethings (what with plenty of snow around and holidays, who wouldn't want to build a snowman and Stampavie & More is Snowmen.



The image is the gorgeous snowman from Penny Black that the lovely Sandie sent me (along with the sparkly snowflake brads), coloured with Copics and the snow is Art Glitter Faux snow. I cut the frame for the image with Nestie labels 1 and the corners with the provocraft vintage corners. The whole thing looked a little flat so I braided some thread to place around the frame and tied it in a bow at the top.


Today's picture is the Christmas Tree outside my bedroom window. I did decorate it with fat balls for the birds but i can't see them anymore, hope the birds can, unless they've already eaten them.
