Christmas Card Club - Snowmen


A card for my friend.

Christmas card club today and our challenger Lorraine has asked for snowmen. I have just the one, but he is kinda cute!  I used my new Epic Alphabet stamp set from the annual Stampin' Up! catalogue to stamp 'snow' and turned my cute little snowman from the Holiday Home stamp set to make the 'O'.  The greetings stamp is from Watercolour Winter too and to just get the 'greetings' part of the stamp I used a post it note to block of Season's before stamping.  My pretty snowflakes are from another winter catalogue set called Endless Wishes.  The colour combo is whisper white, real red and pool party.  As you know I love bling and so I"ve added odd rhinestones for the snowflakes and a string and bit of rhinestones to frame my snowman.

Today I'd like to dedicate my card to my lovely friend Emma Daye who very suddenly and sadly passed away on Thursday.  Emma and her hubby Andrew have suffered long and hard from more illness than anyone should have to deal with in one lifetime let alone as a couple.  Emma was a very talented crafter and graphic designer.  She had a smile for everyone and she and Andrew have remained committed to each other and a positive approach throughout their challenging journey together.  Our thoughts are with Andrew and their family at this very sad and difficult time.  You will be missed Emma for your friendship, talent and courage and so much more.  Rest in peace my lovely friend.
