No Peekin' Snowman

I have a confession to make...I don't actually need any more Christmas cards...they've all been written...I even have some spares...and I certainly have more pressing projects that I should be spending my time on...but whilst looking through my image box for images to colour to use on said projects, I came across this cute little snowman ('No Peekin' Snowman' by Penny Black) and thought he'd be perfect for the 'Homespun' themed challenge over at Less is More. This was a really quick card to make...I simply coloured the image using watercolour pencils, pierced a simple border, added a snippet of gingham paper (from the 'Christmas in the Country' pad by Papermania) and a Lili of the Valley sentiment.
