Caroling Snowmen

Hi, guys! I hope you've all had a good day! Welcome to my new followers! I'm so glad to have you along!

I meant to post this card yesterday but I was at an e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y l-o-n-g meeting last night and didn't get home until bedtime!

I love these Caroling Snowmen by Meljens Designs They are really putting their heart into their singing, aren't they?

I used Promarkers to colour them - how did I manage without the removable fine nibs? The fur on their hats has been covered with glitter, and so has the fab snowflake, which is from the Spellbinders 'Create a Flake 4' which is candy I won from J and C Creations

I used Nesties to cut the image and the mat and also the label, which is a trimmed-down Fancy Tag. The Postmark sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps.

The papers are another freebie pack from 'Quick Cards Made Easy.' I have so many of these packs! The star stickers were a RAK from my daughter, and the ribbon is from stash.

I decorated the inside, too, swapping the papers around as is my wont:

I'm entering these challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - the theme is 'For a man or boy' and this is for our Choirmaster at Church - I think he'll appreciate it!

Christmas Card Challenges want 'Snowmen'

and Sunday Sketch and Stamp provided the fab sketch!

Thanks for looking!
