Skating Snowy

I'm starting a new Christmas card tally in my sidebar for next Christmas(!!), and this is the first card to make it in. I received some new Penny Black stamps for Christmas...including this little 'Skating Snowy', so it would have been rude not to ink them up and play! I coloured him using watercolour pencils then cut him out using one of my trusty Nestie circle dies and combined him with papers from a really old My Mind's Eye pad called 'Wonderful Winter'...I re-discovered this in my paper stash a couple of weeks ago and have fallen in love with it all over again! I cut out some of the larger snowmen from a snippet of one of the papers...I thought that Snowy might like some company! I added some faux stitching and a sentiment from a set by Lili of the Valley.

Challenges for this card:

That is / was beautiful paper. I hoarded it, too, too pretty to cut into! I finally used a bunch of it this year. I like how you cut out the snowmen from the paper to keep your stamped image company!

Thanks for joining us for our Out With the Old, In With the New challenge at Cut it Up!
