Inspirational Card Sketches

I am back again with my take on this weeks sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches and in an effort to build the stack of Christmas cards have opted for the seasonal theme for my card.

I have used Mr Happy and Cool - Penny Black 4003F, in fact three Mr Happy and Cools as I masked and decoupaged him to make a trio of snowmen going up the snowy hill.....do I live in fantasy world or what ? I have simply coloured them with Sakura pens and glittered them liberally. The DP is My Minds Eye and the large snowflakes are cut from the same paper and silver mirri through the bug with this super new snowflake cut and emboss folder and the small ones from a regular punch. The greeting is Penny Black 3995F, some gem brads in the centres of the snowflakes and glittery falling snow in the sky......fantasy world again.

Nothing wrong with living in a fantasy world Brenda, especially when the weather's so dark and dismal.
I love your trio of Snowmen, they look so cheerful.
Hope your day has gone ok.

I think that's wishful thinking more than fantasy - hills on the fens. I don't think so. Do like all those snowmen - great card.

Love those snowmen! I find some snowmen images a bit scary especially if they have teeth, Lol!

Really love how you've glittered them without losing any of the detail on the faces.
