James - Snowman

Good Morning Everyone, 
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I actually got the chance to make a card just for fun yesterday. I used the gorgeous James and Snowman from Lili of the Valley.


I've coloured him with promarkers and added lots of glitter. The background papers are the Frosty Christmas pad from Lili of the Valley


I've used the new 'Merry Christmas' die from Memory Box - I love this die, and I think you might just be seeing a lot more of it!! I added a Marianne Creatables snowflake die, also covered in lots of glitter (the die cut not the die!) and a bit of ribbon from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl - Lovely Lili  : Anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - Snow is Falling
Charisma Cardz - Animals

I've got a craft fair this morning so hopefully I will sell one or two cards.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today and for all your lovely comments.
