Snowmen at the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends. I hope your week is going well.

My card today is part of  the mid-way reminder and inspiration post for the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge
Our fun theme this month is
Snowmen or Snowpeople 

We are sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop who have a £10 voucher for the lucky winner.

So here's the card I made last week on one of the hottest days of the year, it felt a little strange but one good thing - the glitter dried really quickly!!!


Items Used
Ink Stamps - Penny Black Sweet Snowman coloured with Promakers
Penny Black Snow Scroll ( for edges)
Embossing Folder Cuttlebug Snowflakes
Memory Box Star Flourish
Memory Box Precious Snowflakes (with bow cut off !)
Sentiment - Whimsy Holiday Mini Postage Stamps
Glamour Dust and Stardust Stickles

If you take a look at the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge you will see loads of inspiring creations from the rest of the design team



I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Sweet Stampin' Challenge - What -  Christmas In July
Penny Black - Christmas in July
Clearly iStamp - Christmas in July
Creative Corner - Let it Sparkle
Sentimental Sundays - Christmas in July
I ♥ Promakers - Christmas in July

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog once again today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Sue! both your cards brought a BIG SMILE to my face this evening. Very darling - darling DARLING darling LOL The special delivery critters going the extra mile to deliver birthday wishes is cute as can be. LOVE your color choices. Not sure how you do that - your colors never are "just the ordinary choices" and always look spectacular.

Your little snowman taking a rest with his cap over his eyes and that impish little smile is so cute! Love the soft colors you have selected and all the frilly, glittery happenings surrounding him. Great texture in the pom pom on his cap. hugs, de

Karen said...

Oh Sue, this is exquisite! How precious is this snowman? :o) I love your color choices for this card, as well as the marvelous design. That snowflake is gorgeous! I love the pearly center, the snowy scroll, and the use of a star border rather than a snowflake. Such a nice option that isn't used as often. Beautifully done as always, my friend. This will warm the heart of its recipient. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
