Merry Monday #54, Snowman


It feels like Christmas again in Quebec, Canada so I see it very fitting to be posting a snowman card!!

We are getting approx. 30 cms of snow. It began over night and will continue until tomorrow. What does this mean? Spring is not here yet ;((  The kids have a snow day and mom and dad are working from home...well at least mom is trying too..LOL!!

Here is my card for the Merry Monday #54 challenge this week:

And here is a closer look at my copic coloring:

At Always Playing with Paper, Merry Monday this week the challenge is use a snowman.

I immediately knew I wanted to use one of my  images from QRK Stampede, this one is digi15914.  I love the fact that it says Noel on his scarf, he's so cute and cuddly!!

I also used a sketch from Crafting When We Can:

For the text I found a sticker from one of my CM packs, a Christmas edition. I also used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and some snowflakes brads from Eyelit Outlet and a candy cane metal sticker, don't remember the cie it comes from.. I added some bling and ribbon, and I used my Scallop square die for the image.

I will be entering the following challenges:
Always Playing with Paper, Merry Monday, #54 snowmen
Crafting When We Can, #40 sketch
Christmas Card Challenges, #16 photo inspiration (the candy cane did it for me)
Through the Craft Room Door, TTCRD anything goes
Sentimental Sundays, #146 anything goes

Thanks for stopping by,

love & create ...with a smile :)
