Christmas Card Club - Stampin Up Swirly Snowmen

What a busy fortnight we have had.  Charlie went to The Lake District on a school trip and had a fabulous time canoeing, walking and ghyll scrambling.  He loved it.  Olivia has been part of a business conference at school which sounded similar to the BBC's Junior Apprentice and we've also been visiting universities again and on Friday night we went to the Skegness Embassy Theatre to see the Lincolnshire Schools Prom with acts from numerous schools across the county including 2 rock bands from primary schools which were fantastic to watch such talent from folk so small. Of course with Charlie playing as part of West Street Jazz I'm a little biased on my favourite. It was a super evening and I recommend it to anyone.   However the upshot of such busy times means that card making has been on the back burner, but I've managed to join in the Christmas Card Club challenge set by Lorraine.  She asked for snowmen.  I've seen a few versions of the Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles Framelits snowman and decided to have a go myself, but I've teamed mine up with snowmen from the Snow Place stamp set and Snow Friends framelits.

I layered some Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper onto thick white card and added my trio of snowmen.  I think they are very cute and although abstract the swirly one looks good with the two more traditional snowmen.  I love the candy cane too! The paper is just gorgeous and is fab to use as a background you might remember my card using it with the Stampin' Up! Floral Frames.

Don't forget to visit the other ladies in our Challenge Club for Christmas card inspiration.

Off now to watch more tennis.
