Mid Month Inspiration for Christmas at Sweet Stampin'


Morning all.

It's time for some mid month inspiration at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

A wee reminder that this month our theme is

Snowmen/People

Our sponsor this month is My Mum's Craft Shop who are offering a £10 voucher to the winner.

I must admit to being a bit stuck to begin with with this challenge, couldn't decide what to do as I'm still a bit snowmanned out from all the snowmen cards I made at Christmas for challenges..

So just a very simple card really, I used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder as the basis and coloured this LotV snowman. Then I decided to add the Memory Box snowflake border round the snowman, added a sentiment and some pearls and we're done.  

Such a simple card I might use it for my Christmas cards so it would be great if one of you could take a note of that and remind me of this nearer the time ;)

Love this snowman and he looks great against the embossed background. I've got a wish list for tomorrow when the new stamps come out and I've just been looking at some of the stuff on show at CHA - I definitely picked the wrong time to try to save some money! See you next week? xx
