Just a little Snowman

Hi everyone, late again! I went to our last official Wednesday craft session today, I didn't teach as I had a singing rehearsal for the concert they put on for the end of the year.
Came home and drifted off for about 10 min nap until the phone rang with some tele-marketer wanted to sell me something!! Left my husband to make his own tea as I had to be ready in my choir outfit and head off by just after 6p.m. A friend was supposed to come to my house but at 6 p.m. her husband rang saying that she had a big stain on her white blouse and couldn't get it off, so go without her. She ended up coming but we had already started our performance and had done about 4 songs. So she had to sneak in and find a chair.
After the performance a few of us went to a restaurant/cafe in town for something to eat and a cup of coffee. I got home just after 10.30 p.m. and have been fiddling around with this card ever since! Just couldn't find the right paper. Hopefully this is okay.
I've used SU Old Olive for the cardbase, the spotted DP is from My Minds Eye and the tree paper is from 3 bugs in a rug - it's called Snow Much Fun - Christmas Trees
The little snowman came from a clear set of freebie stamps and was inked in SU Basic Grey and coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and mounted with foam dots.
I used a Nestie for the sentiment which is a rub-on from the cheapie store. I sponged around all the papers and sentiment with SU Garden Green.
I would like to enter this into Sir Stampalot Nov challenge - Blue and Green ( Hope I can get away with the bits of white that are showing)
and also into
The Poodles Parlour - Christmas
and Addicted to Stamps challenge #18 - Christmas
Well better insert the scanned picture and get this published,
Thanks for stopping by,
Take care,
