Snowman with Trees

Hi everyone, wow it is so late. I'm still sitting up with Christmas Puddings steaming away on the stove - 5 of them! I now know why they are taking so long to cook. Silly me forgot to put the lids on and have only just realized it after about 5 hours cooking!!!!! What a silly thing to do. I suppose I have a reason.
Hubby came home just as I was doing all the mixing and he had been up at our daughter's. Some of the kids had got together and had a combined garage sale so he had gone to that. He went and bought some drink and it was suggested to get some icecreams too. They were ones that have a bit of honeycomb through them and coated with chocolate and little bits of biscuit. My son gave his 6 month old a little bit of the icecream and about 3 mins later his lips all swelled up and it was a mad dash to the emergency department of the hospital. I think they gave him adrenalin and he has had to be admitted overnight so they can keep an eye on him. Not sure but he must have had an allergic reaction to something and a pretty rapid one at that. So I was a bit distracted worrying about little bubs. He drove back up to my daughter's as she had the two girls whilst Mum and Dad were at the hospital and now we have them here. So a bit makeshift on the sleepwear but they are tucked up in bed.
So I have only just sat down to make my card, 5 puddings, 1 chocolate cheesecake slice and 1 zucchini slice later!
Well here it is,
The basecard is one of the SU blues and I've also used it and Kiwi Kiss (SU) for the two decorative corners. The DP on the bottom is from 3 bugs in a rug - Let it Snow, Candy Stripe and I've also used another piece of the Snow Much Fun - Christmas trees from the same company. I used a piece of white that I tore one edge and inked around with SU Ballet Blue. The sentiment is a rub-on and the snowman is a freebie from Beccy. I cut him out and then coloured the edge with a blue Copic marker and coloured the scarf, hat and ornament and added some glitter on the ornament and hat.
I am entering this into Bling It On Challenge - Christmas
