Christmas Card Club - Snowman

Snow day from Stampin' Up!
I'm back with my second post for Christmas Card Club.  This fortnight's challenge was set by Sue J over at her lovely blog Olliesmam.  The challenge is to include a snowman and you couldn't really get a much jollier snowman than this cute little fellow.  Such a great smile and and I love his buttons made from candy dots and candy dot brad bases.  I stamped his body with craft white ink and sprinkled a little dazzling diamonds on him before adding white embossing powder and heating.  You can just about see the sparkle in the top photo taken in the morning sunshine.   I wanted to give his scarf some texture and so I cut a strip of stitched satin ribbon in half lengthways to get some fraying and also to not drown the poor chap!   His message is simple and says it all!   For those of you worrying about writing inside a black base card we now have a White Stampin' Chalk Marker which is perfect for writing in dark coloured cards and adding your name onto kit. 
A final note for today..... Before heading out for school this morning Charlie asked me if I had slept well and this is how the conversation went.
Me : yes thank you
Charlie : Did you dream about MEN!!!
Charlie :  Or chocolate biscuit cake?
What makes a small boy's mind work this way!!!!
Ah well off to enjoy this beautiful morning. Hope it's just a lovely with you! Have a great day. Zx
