Stay Warm!!!!

A SNOWMAN....yea!!!! If you know me, you know I love a snowman. I gave the challenge #125 this week as hostess of the Stampin' B's Design Team and it is to make an easel, round or whichever way you prefer. When I started to make it, I hit upon the idea of doing a snowman. Well, it was all fun from there. Although, if I did it over, I would probably put the snowman on top as he is a bit large and I had to stand the top  straight up almost to show him off, leaving off the stop. I love him, anyway. I used a Flourishes stamp set called Warm Winter Wishes and I love this paper from Daisy Bucket-dbl sided All the Trimmings.
Rest of recipe below.

If you've never tried an easel, you can find the instructions on Splitcoaststampers in the resource section.
It is easy and makes a fun card.
