A Sparkly Snowman

Hurrah!! For the first time in over a week I haven't had to defrost the car before the school run! My phut-phut does not like cold weather, the locks freeze, Jack Frost visits the inside of the car & the heating's packed in... blimmin' marvellous!

As I'm sure you can imagine, I have NOT been keen to venture outside unless absolutely necessary!

So to keep myself occupied I have been happily absorbed in colouring in & creating another batch of cards. This Magnolia Snowman is soooo much cuter than the other ones released more recently, at least that's my opinion! I bought him at the beginning of the year & he's been stroked lovingly over the months until the time came to use him...

My adorable Snowman has been coloured with promarkers with a few touches of glitter to make him SPARKLE. I have used freebie Kaisercraft PPs & a new snowflake punch which annoyingly is virtually no bigger than the cuttlebug snowflakes die I already own, it's a good job it wasn't that expensive!

I am entering this card for a few challenges listed below...
