The snowman

A card for Christmas, of course.  I need to make a lot more so I am going to try to complete Sparkle's weekly Christmas challenge from now on.  This week's challenge #44 is to do a card that incoporates your favourite Christmas movie.  When it comes to Christmas, I'm a kid at heart and I love the cartoons so I chose "The Snowman" animation.

I am also entering my card into the All That Scraps monthly Magnolia challenge to create a Christmas scene.  I just love creating scenes!  Pam (who is generally an amazing person) created this amazing card for them and it inspired me to try my hand at it!  So here it is...






Those Magnolia stamps are so gorgeous, aren't they?  I have the other two snowmen from this collection cos I love them so much!  Hopefully Sparkle's next Christmas challenge will be about snow!  I'm also entering this card into the Just Magnolia special monthly challenge who's theme is "anything goes".

Anyway, off to work, back tomorrow with a set of cards that use a paper collection.  That's all I say for now! 


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Figgy paper pad

Stamps: Magnolia fence, Chrimas trees and Snowie Snowman with Snowflake, CC Designs sentiments
Mediums: Copic markers, Glamour Dust (on hat and all snowflakes), snow puffy stuff (on trees and fence!) 
Accents: none
Tools: Nestabilities label dies (inside), Magnolia doily die, snowflake punch
