Penny Black 'Snowflakes Falling' and missing in action for WOYWW

I spotted a great challenge the other day over on Bonnie's blog - it's another Christmas one, called 'Merry Monday' and goodness knows, I need all the inspiration I can get. This week's challenge is to have a snowman (or even a few) on your card:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- surprise, surprise, a Penny Black Stickeroo, from the 'Snowflakes Falling' sheet

- duck egg blue plain pearlised card

- duck egg blue 'snowflakes' backing card

- a snippet of ribbon, again rescued from a box of chocolates, with a bow

- love the expression of sheer joy on the snowman's face so I added a little silver 'Joy' charm, tied using silver cord in a bow

It's great to have found another Christmas challenge to add to my regulars - Sarn's Rudolph Day each month and Hazel's weekly and monthly challenges - production could be stepping up a gear.

Rushing round today so in fairness I have to skip WOYWW but if you have found your way here I'll make sure I get to call by and see you ASAP :)

You do love those stiickeroos. I never see them when I am browsing the web, but my local shop in UK had reels and reels of them. They really do make very good cards too. This is a very happy snowman! I am not on schedule with Christmas cards at all this year. perhaps I ought to do a few more challenges again.
I saw wonky squares dies on your site a while back and have been trying to find some. I did eventually track them down and they arrived today!

Lovely cute card Di, the snowman looks very pleased with himself, perhaps he knows there's more snow on its way :(.

Busy busy busy, gosh Mrs you never stop. Rest up a while and take a breather, let me make you a cuppa.

Happy WOYWW xx

Ha ha! Your comment on my blog, made me laugh, Di.
I should try throwing those gems over my shoulder. Hubby says why not - judging from my craft room floor it looks like I do that with the glitter!!! ;-)
Gorgeous card. Looking out the window today, I could build a snowman like that!
Love the pretty ribbon and charm - makes the card extra special I think.

Sweet card Di, I have that stickeroo set but have already used that one up. I saw that challenge too, need to add it to my blog Christmas list, might not have time to join in this week though.


PS. So what's keeping you so busy again and do you need my dark sunglasses!

I have hardly any Christmas stickeroo's and I am sure I don't have this one, it is fab and a great card that you have made with it. Love the fancy borders down each side and the papers you have used.

Hello Di, hope things have calmed down for you since yesterday's rush around. Like this card - in fact, I think I can say I like it a lot. The smile on the snowman's face is fab and I just love duck egg blue anything :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx
