Pile It On! Challenge - Christmas or Winter

I'm back with another card for this month's Pile It On! Challenge where the theme is:

'Christmas or Winter'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Pink Gem Designs:
Prize - 2 Digi Images of the winner's choice!

I know that most of you will probably think I'm mad making Christmas cards the day after Christmas, but I received a lovely new 'build a snowman' stamp set from my lovely bloggy buddy Samantha for Christmas, so it would have been rude not to ink them up right away! The stamps are by Stampendous, and the set is called 'Stretchy Snowmen'...and basically you build your own snowman...pick an outline, choose a face, add some arms and buttons, then clothe him...great fun! I made two snowmen, then fussy cut them out and added them to two very similar cards:

I created a 'snowy' background using my Simon Says Stamp 'Falling Snow' stamp (heat embossed in white on navy card), and my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside Border' dies (using the snippets of white card you get when you cut a square card blank from a piece of A4 card - I always keep them for this kind of thing). I added a sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous), then nestled the snowman into the snowdrifts.

Here are the Challenges I've piled on:
