Mr Snowman

Hi there,

I've had a busy day.  I started off by taking my cat to the Vets.  She's very old (20) and she needs a regular checkup as she is on painkillers for her joints.  Because of her age the vet said she now has an irregular heartbeat and she's slowly losing weight.  Although she is losing weight, it is not something that is just happening its very gradual over the years.  She's my shadow and wants feeding all the time.

Anyhow, here is a Christmas card that I did for the ABC Christmas Challenge blog, like I said I am going to keep joining in with this one so I will have a load of christmas cards at the ready for Christmas 2014.


ABC Christmas Challenge Blog - A is for Anything Christmas
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes with Pearls or Buttons
Without Words - Spots and/or Stripes

Sorry, my photos from 3 onwards are not brilliant but I found it hard trying to get good pictures of the inside of the card.  Something to practice I think.

The inside of the card is made with one of the WS Designs card templates. When assembled all together it does look really nice.  I have added snowflakes inside the snowman apperture, which I hope you can see from my pics.

Unfortunately I don't have a pro-marker list for this post, so apologies.  I put them all back into storage before I marked them down.

Items used on Card:-

Bugaboo image
Handmade card blank
Papers are a mixture of Papermania and Magnolia (old collections)
Pearls are Papermania.
Snowflake die is Magnolia.

Thanks so much for looking and have a lovely day.
