Mr Snowman

 Good evening everyone tonight I;m sharing a card I made recently for the ladies at our small craft group to make 

I used a very old Lili of the Valley snowman stamp called Mr Snowman. I have to say even though he's old its still a favourite snowman of mine . I made a rocker design this is only the third time I have made this shaped card.

 Card Recipe

Rocker card is made from a Spellbinder Grand Decorative circle 
Stamp is Mr Snowman from Lili  of the Valley I think now only available as a digi stamp. I painted him with Derwent Inktense Pencils
Kraft card is Crafters Companion
Snowman Paper is from Hobby Lobby in Florida
Smaller circle is from the same Spellbinder set
Wooden tree is from The works painted with Iced spruce Distress Ink
Tags are LOTV stamps
Green pearl drops are  Honey Dew sorry some are a bit uneven but I was making this last Tuesday and they were melting on the card 

I hope everyone is well and have a great week 

Happy Crafting Love and  hugs Carole x
