one card - seven challenges and my favourite Christmas stamp

Evening girls
It's turned really cold here, I guess it will be another frosty one tonight. Thanks goodness I'm all tucked up indoors with no need to go out again. I'll hopefully have a little play with some of the lovely goodies I've won over the past couple of days:)

This is one of the first Christmas stamps I ever bought and I love him as much now as I did then. I think he'll always be one of my favourites. I stamped and coloured a few of them with my copics whilst watching the X Factor on Saturday but have only now got around to actually making a card.


He's basically had his hat and scarf coloured and glittered and been mounted straight onto some dark green card. Quick and easy, just what we need for the mountain of cards needed at this time of year. I then mounted the strip of striped paper onto some green card which I'd run through the cuttlebug with the snowman sentiments on (sorry can't remember the proper name lol) and another white layer which I'd used one of me Martha Stewart punches on and finished off with a couple of snowflakes. Oh and the papers are from the Deck the Halls range from Papermania.
