A Snowman in a Blizzard!

Hi everyone, it's Friday so it's time for another challenge at Winter Wonderland and our theme for you this week is to make 'A card for a child'.

 We have a lovely sponsor this week Pink Gem who have a great prize  of 3 digi's for the winner.

My snowman is from Pink Gem, I think he looks like he is in a blizzard, I didn't intend for that to happen but I got a bit carried away with my frantage so it looks like this snowman is in a snow storm!  I think I was a bit heavy handed but it was my first go at using frantage so next time I will lightly sprinkle lol!

I also did some sewing on this card as I had a new little toy arrive in the craft room this week that was a mini sewing machine. I do have a normal sewing machine but I want to use that to sew with material and I don't want to have to keep changing the needle all the time as paper will blunt it so this little mini one was only £12.50 from Hobbycraft which I thought was a great bargain!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
