Yes it is, well it is  a Penny Black cute Snowman, so no chance of it not being cute I suppose.

I’ve noticed that my Christmas Card production has definitely slowed in recent weeks, but then again, I haven’t had as much time to spend in the craft room either recently.  So, one more card for the old box at least.

I made a very simple card, based on the sketch the lovely Jingle Belles have provided for us this week, I even refrained from adding any extra embellishments to it.  The image is PB’s Snowy form the clear set Jolly Friends and he was coloured with Distress Inks and one Marvy Marker (green for the mistletoe leaves).  His hat bobble and rim are glittered, as is the snow he’s standing on but neither are showing up.  The Mistletoe berries and the snow flakes are both Perfect Pearls, a first for me, never tried them before and I really like them.  The image was cut out with Nesties dies.  The corner die is Memory Box, glittered with Crystal Stickles.  The sentiment is also Penny Black, from another clear set called The Wonder, and  all the paper is DCWV and is all out of the scrap box.
