My Favourite Snowman

I don't know what's wrong with me...this is my fifth Christmas card this week! The Stamp Something Challenge is asking us to use our 'Favourite Stamp' on our projects...now I don't have children...but I imagine that this is like being asked to choose your favourite child! lol
I decided to go with a Penny Black stamp...as they are definitely my favourite brand of stamps...and when I saw this morning's Winter Wonderland Challenge which is to use our 'Favourite Snowman'...I decided to choose 'Snowy'. I followed the Stamp with Fun sketch, using more BasicGrey 'Figgy Pudding' papers, adding a little faux-stitching detail around the edges. The sparkly snowflake brad is by Woodware, and the sentiment stamp is also by Penny Black...and as I LOVE Penny Black stamps...especially 'Snowy'...and Christmas...I'm also entering this card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is 'Heart's Desire'.


Just a quick reminder...I have candy here if you haven't already entered :0)
