Double Challenge Card

Well its been a snowy Sunday here in Norfolk so I thought I would take a quick pic out of my front door! I like looking at the snow from the warmth of the indoors so I managed to get a couple of cards made today. I think I must be the slowest card maker ever, I am really going to have to make some quick cards soon or I will never get all my special cards done for Christmas!

Anyway enough of my rambling, this card is for 2 challenges, the first is Just Christmas and Birthday Cards who have a great sketch this week and the second challenge this card is for is Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge whoose theme set by Jane this week is decoupage. I hope you can see from the photo that I have decoupaged the scarf and boots of the snowman. I have coloured the snowman with a mix of promarkers and glitter paints. The fur trim has decorated with flocking powder.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you have time.
Hugs Lynsey :)
