A Portrait of Snowmen



We moved to wordpress so don't forget to update your bookmarks

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,

MONOCHROMATIC

We are showcasing Paper Smooches this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!


I was really please how my card turned out once I decided to frame the snowmen it all fell into place.
The papers are Christmas Cheer from Lilybee designs and the Snowmen are Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes. Had great fun adding mouths, moustaches and pipes. You get all the tiny details so make you Snowdudes original to you.
To make the Village scene behind the Snowdudes I've used Memory Box Country Landscape which is out of stock at the moment but if you have even the Modern or even the Evergreen Landscape both would work just as good.
I cut the frame using a Square Nestabilitie but cut the out side to my requirements then I finished off using
To finish a sentiment using the Holidays Apothecary labels stamp and die set and a couple of Small Forest Tree both from Simon Say Stamps Exclusive die and stamps.




Now you know the drill to win the chance of this fabulous prize you have to enter the challenge with a new card no backlinking and you need to enter your post using the linky thing on the challenge blog. Also you need to link to the challenge in your post or you won't be eligible for the prize.
