The Snowman

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Here I am again and yes friends is now OCTOBER

Welcome to my post for the new challenge
over at

The theme chosen for this month is 

Use Die Cuts and/Or Punches

We Have New Challenge Blog Rules, so please Note:-

Entrants Must Use A Digi or Element from a Cd

Also Only Two entries are allowed, unless you have used
a Whoopsi Daisy image then 3 entries are allowed

Hope you will pop over and take a peek at what my team

buddies have created for your inspiration.

My card has been made using an image is from

    the cd - Whoopsi Daisy Digi Designs
You can purchase it and more gorgeous cd's and
 and didgi images just by clicking on the link


1. Started with a 7 x 7 white scalloped edged card and
matted it with blue paper from the cd but firstly the
top was die cut and then I embossed it.

2. Next I took two other edge dies to represent snow
  mounds and used white card and once cut  these 
 were also embossed and then adhered to the card 
with foam tape.

3. The snowman ( don't you think he is so cute with
that lovely smily face) was taken from the cd and
was a pre-coloured image.  I then fuzzy cut around
him and using foam tape and adhered him between
the show mounds.

4. Using white card and a Tattered Lace  Christmas
tree die I created the  tree and added it the card.
Red Nuvo Crystals were added just to inject that
little bit of colour.

To complete I die cut the sentiment Merry Christmas.

So there you have it, my take on the theme using
six dies in total.  Cannot wait to see your fabulous

Thanks for calling

Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Crafting
