It's snowing.......somewhere!

Hi Friends,

I hope everyone's week is going well so far.  Christmas is only 260 days away so I thought I better start making my cards -haha!!  I actually love making christmas cards and after taking a break from them since January I thought it was about time to start up again.  Here in Australia we have just put our clocks back so the evenings are dark and winter is its feels like a good time for some wintry makes....even though it never gets that cold!  Sigh.... being a Scottish girl I just can't get used to Winter in the middle of the year and Christmas in the summer!

Anyway for this card I used one of my all time favourite winter stamps from LOTV. They have a huge collection of seriously cute winter and Christmas stamps and I own alot of them.  This darling stamp is called Snow Cute.  I coloured the wee penguin in with my copics and added some glitter glue under the image for some icy snow and some liquid pearls as snowdrops. It was then a case of just layering him up with some DP and glitter cardstock and the addition of an icicle border.
