I Wanna Build a Snowman!

Hi everyone, I hope your week is going well. It's about this time of year that I always start to feel a bit over whelmed with all I still need to do to be ready for Christmas.  Do you feel like that or is it just me?   I always end being ready in the end but at the moment it feels like a daunting task ahead with cards still to make, presents still to buy, and a  Christmas dinner to organise along with loads of busy nights and weekends out.   I wish a fairy could just come along and wave her wand and it would all be done!  Failing that I will just have to take one day at a time and do what I can!

Anyway onto this jolly snowman that I brought when I went to the NEC recently.  I have decoupaged his scarf but I'm not sure you can see that from the photo. I used some frantage on my lamp post and snowflake for a little snowy sparkle and my favourite Xmas papers from Dovecraft oh and the Snowman stamp is a Woodware one. 

Thanks for stopping by.

What a gorgeous card Lynsey, I love that stamp, he's such a jolly chap. I feel a bit like you, although I have made a good start on present shopping and have had requests for gift cards so am doing quite well on that front!! xx

I love this Lynsey, such a fabulous snowman, gorgeous papers and wonderful sparkle.
I know just how you feel about Christmas, it always turns out okay in the end but before hand there is so much to do!

Oh he is so cute! Love the snowflake and lampost. A very pretty card. You are not alone, as I am feeling the same. I have my Daughter's birthday on Saturday, no card made yet and no present yet! Then my Son's birthday, 4 days after my Daughter's. Then a 2 day weekend at a Craft Fair. I am still making boxes and clocks for that. Then I have to make my cards to send. Oh nearly forgot. I also have a class to do at the Craft Barn and the sample to make for that still to do!! I want to go to sleep and your fairy can get all Christmas bits done for me!!Lol!!! Hugs, Carol S.xx
