Long Nose Snowman



The Merry Monday challenge #63 sketch:



I decided to use my circle on the sketch to make a snowman. I punched a red circle so my snowman would pop out and then a smaller 1 3/4" circle in white for the body. A friend sent me the cutest snowman and I cut out the head only and glued to my circle to make my snowman.  I've added some color in blue with Copics and also some Stickles.

My banners are hand cut.

Recipe:
Stamps-unknown (from a friend) and used head only, Hot off the Press/Christmas Words (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! cherry cobbler, unknown dp
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Martha Stewart snowflake punch, green gemstone, Star Dust Stickles, 2" and 1 3/4" circles punches

This is as cute as it gets! and clever too. You are inspiring me to get some more Christmas cards done. Last year I ran out...and found myself scrabbling to try and get enough cards done at the last minute!

Liebe Brenda,
wieder so eine schöne Weihnachtskarte von dir. Der Kartensketch sieht toll aus. Ich glaube ich muß auch mal wieder eine Weihnachtskarte basteln (lol), schließlich haben wir bei uns nur 10° Celsius und es hagelt und regnet. Und das im Mai. Es ist für diese Jahreszeit viel zu kalt in Germany.
Kühle liebe Grüße, Anja

You give me Christmas Card guilt every time I visit. You remind me how far behind I am (Like totally for not started at all) and you are just cranking them as you are suppose to! I always love visiting and seeing your snowman images!
