Jingle Belles Snowman

Hi there ...
The sun is shining gloriously here and it seems strange to be posting a Christmas card ... but I am doing my best to keep up with Jingle Belles challenge ... and this week they are having a 'cross over' with Betty Bees Buzz  which means that you can link your card up to both blogs ... Lovely Lauren from Jingle Belles is guesting for Betty Bees Buzz ... whilst the very talented June Houck is guesting for Jingle Belles ... (I think I got it right) ...  The challenge this week is to use Die Cuts ... bought, made ... anything goes as long as you use a die cut ...
So this week I got to use one of my Snowman pieces ...


He's one happy snowman don't you think? 


I used my Sizzix and a SB die to cut the white label background for Mr. Snowman ... embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and used blue glitter Stickles on the label and on Mr. Snowman's braces ... I also die cut the snowflake from felt and added more glitter ... the background paper is of course MME glitter paper ... I know ... I'm obsessed!


some little flowers from a Christmas decoration finished it off ... I used the Stickles for the centre of the flowers too ... So there we are card 16 all done and dusted (in glitter.. ha ha) ...
I should mention too that the DT and GD June Houck have once again made fantastic samples for us this week ... hop over and take a look ...

Before I go ... did you notice my little cat on the side bar? ...  remember a good while ago I was cat sitting for my dear friend whilst she was in hospital? Well this kitty looks just like her cat Chucky ... my friend now needs some strong medical treatment and so cyber Chucky and I will be wishing her well everyday and sending love ... The great thing is that this cat actually purrs when you touch her with your cursor and she will also follow your cursor ... try it and see ... ah ... Love it!

Till soon ... have a wonderful day

Yay, Ros! Your card is WONDERFUL. I have a difficult time trying to capture shine or true color when I photograph a card. I can see the shine of your cardstock and snowflake and buttons. I love this card! Fab stitching and sketch....terrific :)

p.s. thanks for the intro; yep you got it right!
