Snowy Christmas Wishes (in July!!!)

Good morning all - hope you are well.  My ears are popping at the mo.  I think it has something to do with atmospheric pressure, maybe?  It feels really heavy in the air here in Buxton.

I have yet another Christmas card lol....

It's another cute Bugaboo image and I've done something a little different with my pro-markers.  I've used the blender pen to blend the colour around the snowmen and on them as well.  It's a nice shading effect I think.  The papers are Magnolia 12 x 12 and the snowflake is a Magnolia Die.  I've used my cuttlebug embossing folder (snowflakes) which you can see at the bottom of the card.  Everything else is from my trusty stash.
