Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

It's already that time again for a new challenge over at 
This time around Vicki is our hostess and the theme is
In The Meadow We Will Build A Snowman

I had a lot of fun making this card!
Last year I won this snowman stamp and a marker set
from Stampendous.
The stamp is called Jumbo Top Hat Snowman,
isn't he just the "coolest" (pun
The background paper I used was from the scrap bin.
but I have to tell you, I cut it the wrong way...
I had wanted it to go across, not up and down,
Because it was a scrap, there was not more to cut
so it is what it!

I colored Mr. Snowman with some Copics
and then used glitter pens to make him sparkle,
which I am sure you can't see IRL!

That neat-o bow is from Cheery Lynn Designs
called Pretty Pretty Bows.
The snow banks are cut with Lawn Fawn dies
and "iced" with some Star Dust Stickles.

The sentiment is from SU Christmas Punch set
and of course punched out with the SU matching punch.
I hardly ever use my punches anymore
so it was kind of fun to do so!

Pop on over to The Sisterhood and see what my 
creative "sistahs" have for you...
hey, why not join in the challenge with us!

Love the ice! And I like the background vertical, makes me think of snow falling down.

This is such a fun card, Diane, what an adorable snowman, and I love the bow!! (Also, I've cut a scrap the wrong way, too, it's so annoying - but your background looks good!) Thanks for joining in at My Time to Craft!
