Cosy snowman card

Hi, and welcome!

I guess the title might just give away what I've been up to....haaahaaa!
Firstly, I'm sending hugs and sloppy kisses to you all, and saying thank you for all the get well wishes.....and don't worry.....I think I'm almost germ-free, now...heehee........
Had a nasty few days, though.......swollen glands, sore throat, swollen lymphy-thingy arm.....and now I'm left with a cough that is buggin' the heck out of me......but, I'm a woman, so will survive, lol.....

I really, really needed to do some serious cooling-off........summer has at last arrived in my part of Merry Old England and I am meeeeeellllttttiiiinnnnnngggggg........have I ever mentioned that I really don't like the heat?.....okay, okay, maybe a few dozen times, but what do you expect from somebody with freckles?...haa!

Didn't have a lot of time to play today, so this really was a very quick little make........

I used an embossed card base and coloured up my little frosty friend with the usual Promarkers.......

This little fella is from Happileigh.....sweeeet!  I edged the card and the label  with a smidgin of red chalk, and used a Sakura white glaze pen to add the dotties to his warm and snuggly scarf and hat......can't have him catching a cold, can I?......

A couple of scraps of pretty festive ribbon, topped with a snowflake button, and my pretty little card is  done!

Hope you like him......

  6. HA, your postie reminded me of an old Helen Redding (was she popular known across the pond?) song that went, "I am woman, hear me roar." Anyhoo, super, super card. I'm going to be remembering this one closer to time for the holidays -- always need quick ones since I tend not to be as organized as you and get them done early! Really, with 38C temps, who can think about Christmas -- um, well I guess you can!
