Snowman Hugs

Doesn't every one adore a snowman?  So wouldn't it be extra special, if a little chilly, to get a hug from one?!  It's almost been snowman weather here today, we've had rain, wet snow, sleet and hail, brrrrrrrr.  It was perishing at 9.00 this morning.  At least the sun has popped out now for a lovely, bright interlude between the downpours!

And speaking of snowmen, I thought it was about time I got ink to one of my new Wild Rose Studio stamps.


As I shall be posting so many Christmas cards I am trying to keep them all fairly flat and light, hence the simplicity of the layout on this one, as UK PIP postage prices are now quite high, especially if you are posting a lot of items in one go.  I don't want to sound mean, but last year my postage stamp bill was higher than the cost of Toad's Christmas present!

Ingredients are
Medium - Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment - Hobby Art
Paper - LOTV Frosty Christmas
Extras - Sparkle borders and Martha Stewart snowflake

On the coloured version of this stamp on the packet, the little bear is done as a polar bear but I wanted to add a little warmth with colour, so here he is just a plain old teddy!


I've made another Christmas card today that I will save to show you tomorrow.  Now I'm off downstairs to make a birthday card for a bloggie buddy.  Shepherd's Pie for dinner tonight (omm nom nom) so nice and cozy comfort grub, stuffing my face while watching Strictly and Merlin.  How much better can it get?

Hugs, Sxx

Very nice card...I agree about the postage...I always think the post office should sell the little slim cut opening guide thy use. If we had a copy of the guide at home we could add only enough layers to make it safely through the tester guide.
I keep all my thick, layered cards for hand delivery. We go to several parties and gift exchanges at Christmas time. I hand deliver many cards there, as do many other friends especially the paper crafter friends.

This card makes me cold! Oh wait, maybe it is my office. I like the contrast of the cold background and the warm happiness of the close friends.
