Snowy Stepper

On Sunday afternoon, I had an urge to dig out one of the very first stamps I bought, way back in 2005.  My first love in rubber was (and still is) Penny Black and I could not resist owning this adorable snowman.  He has been used many, many times since he arrived here.

So, this is Penny Black "Snowy"
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and a good helping of Glamour Dust
Stepper die purchased from the lovely Sarah Wright
Snowy's panel die is Nestabilities Labels 11
Holographic card from stash
Snowflake paper is LOTV Frosty Christmas
Sentiment is Hero Arts
And a variety of snowflake punches to finish off

And of course he is the perfect thing to remind you about the SNOW-VEMBER challenge that is running here for the whole of November, so get those snowies inked up and come and join the fun!

I know that I don't need to apologise because so many of you understand but I will anyway.  I am sorry if I have not visited you recently.  I have been in quite a dark place since we said goodbye to Vince and I am finding it difficult to focus on much.  I promise that I will try to do better, and thank you for your patience and kindness, it means a lot.
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I adore Snowy. I was going colour him to enter you challenge but I cannot find my stamp anywhere - so annoying as he is one of my favourites.
Anyway, your card is gorgeous, beautiful colouring and I love the design.
hugs Sue xx

All the gorgeous frosty DP, snowflakes and sparkle is just perfect for Snowy and your card is lovely and elegant :-)

It will take time to heal after losing Vince, but I hope the dark days are over soon.

'Snowy' certainly is super cute, and you have showcased him perfectly, Squirrel.

Most of us understand about the awful void that you feel after losing your darling Vince. It will take a long time to get back to anything that remotely resembles 'normal' life. It is more than 8 months since my beautiful Pally crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and the tiniest thing can bring on tears. Perhaps they are together, having a little chat in the sunshine?
