On a cold and frosty morning


How are you all on this cold and frosty morning?
Hope it's not too wet where you are - we seem to be escaping the worst of it.

I know a black and white Christmas card isn't for everyone, but I kind of like the way this one turned out.
I think I will make a few of these.



This adorable snowman is a digi stamp from Heather Ellis.
I coloured him with Copics, adding a couple of black gems as 'presents' and popped him up on foam pads
 

For the background I used my Memory Box landscape die, with  a liberal sprinkling of glamour dust to the edges and liquid pearls for the 'snow'.
As usual, IRL this is lovely and sparkly, but my camera skills can't really capture it.
