CHNC challenge 98: for a man or a boy

It's getting quite near to Christmas now ... so it's time to get serious with making cards, so what better time to join in my CHNC challenge 98 to make a card for a man or a boy - please click on the link and join in if you can.

For my card I've used part of the snowman4square image supplied by Bugaboo Stamps who are sponsoring my challenge. I printed out the image and lightly coloured with copics and a light blue Marvy alcohol pen, which I then used to go round the edges. I tore a few piece of paper and edged with the pen and then added some stickles diamond.

The card was based on the sketch given for Always playing with paper merry Monday 40: - I turned it to the right and changed the shape surrounding the image.

This is also for:

  1. Great fun card Hazel, love the layers of snow behind the snowman, just hope they stay on the card and not 3' outside my front door! Thank you for sharing with us at Tanda Teaser. XOXO Zoe

  2. It's fab Hazel - my immediate thought was that you could personalise it by colouring the scarf to match the recipients footie team's colours
