Warm Winter Wishes

Good Morning...Happy Friday! It's a full moon and I ALWAYS have difficulty sleeping during a full moon so I thought I'd do some crafting. As much as I love Autumn, I think I'm orange, brown and golded out for the time being.
I wanted to turn my focus to Christmas today so I started with my all time favorite snowman stamp by Penny Black. Although I have used this stamp before, it is my favorite and I don't think I will ever get tired of it. I colored the image with Prisma pencils and OMS then cut it using the out of the frame circle/scallop Nestibilites technique then added some glitter and some flower soft. Flat back pearls were added to the scallops. The sentiment is computer generate using CK Wonderland font and cut with Spellbinders tag. It was attached to the image using craft yarn. The background layer is embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder and I added some snowflakes that were cut with Cuttlebug snowflake die and glittered and flat back pearls were added.
Thanks for stopping by. As I mentioned yesterday, I usually don't craft on the weekend but be sure to stop by tomorrow, not only will I have a few postings but a chance for you to win some fabulous Cutting Cafe Printable Stamps. That's all I can say about it for now but I've done a little something out of my comfort zone that I'm really pleased with. So until tomorrow...happy crafting!

Kelly, he is just lovely. I sometimes wish Christmas is in the winter here because the winter christmas cards are always so nice.

Just one thing. How have you gone the image on the Nesties please. I see his Pom Pom is sitting above the top.
