Who wants a Snowball Fight?

Isn't it funny, we don't get snow here, but it has always fascinated me and I love fun snowman images etc. I've seen and heard of lots of problems with snow but I've also seen how pretty it is and the fun you can have in it. Weather can be so very destructive and at other times such a thing of beauty.  I decided today to make a card with this happy  little snowman on it.
Thanks to all of you who commented on Layla's card yesterday, you should have seen her little face light up when I read them out to her.

Onto my card for today........

Front of card - I stamped the snowman onto the die cut and then again onto white card, coloured him and then fussy cut out (even those little stick arms and hands and the little snowball!!!) and glued him over the first image.

Inside of card
SU Real Red cardstock for the top fold basecard
DP from stash (at least 2 years old, LOL)
Nellie Snellen Die
Joy Craft Die - I cut this in half and used 1 half on the front and the other on the inside.
Sentiment on front is from SU Snow Much Fun stamp set
Sentiment on inside is from SU More Merry Messages stamp set
Black Memento inkpad
Copic Markers
Bling from stash
Carl snowflake punch
Scraps of blue card

I am entering this into the following challenges
Lady Anne's Challenges - Anything Goes
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Christmas Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge 79 ~ More than one punch and /or diecut (I've used two different dies and 1 punch)

  7. Hi Sandy the frame for the fun snowman and the NS diecut behind that .

  8. I'm almost sad to read that you don't get snow, it is beautiful and really sets the mood for the holidays while you're smelling the turkey and listening to the Christmas music. It's like living in a snowglobe. :) But then comes the bratty kids that tromp through it and break up the perfectly blanketed landscape and they bring the dog that changes the color in certain spots and then the snow plow throws up a huge mound of dirt and sludge snow in your yard and then you get to shovel!! :D But the winter wonderland will never me marred on your's preserved perfectly. Beautiful work Sandy!! You put Christmas spirit in my heart with this one.
