Papertake Weekly - Cold & Frosty Morning

Good day!

It's not cold and frosty here today, it's wet and dull, but the theme at Papertake Weekly is "Cold and Frosty Morning".


It certainly looks cold and frosty with Penny Black's "Snowy". I've wanted this fella for ages and now he's mine, hooray!

As you may know from my last post, I'm getting ahead nice and early with my Christmas Card. This is my first one using "Snowy" and I thought I might use this design, in different colour ways, for my son's school Christmas cards (my little baby will be at school next Christmas!).

I coloured Snowy with Promarkers and heat embossed his hat and some snow with snowy glitter embossing powder. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the base card.

This little snowman never fails to bring a smile to my face, I hope he's made you smile too.

Hugs, Clare xx
