Snowman Sketch for Freshly Made

Thanks to the holidays the time to get your submission in to the latest Freshly Made Sketch challenge was extended, and I got a chance to play along today, wooohooo!

I decided to make a card with one of the snowmen from the Snow Much Fun set. After the first half of  December brought some horribly warm, windy(as in hurricane force winds, one of the storms we lost power for 16 hrs. Thank goodness for wood stoves and ovens that run off propane!) systems up from Hawaii(we're talking 40* in southcentral Alaska, thats just WRONG for December) it finally cooled down again and we got more snow. It started snowing on Christmas Eve and continued all the way through yesterday, Dec.28. We ended up with over a foot of new snow, and I couldnt have asked for a better Christmas present! I definitely have snow, and snowmen, on the brain!

  3. Well, even thought I love this snowman I can honestly say that I'm glad it hasn't snowed in my neck of the woods all that much so far. God bless you and your love of're a better woman than I am!! Still, I'm glad you made this adorable card and shared it with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  5. Oh my ... what a fantastic shot of all that snow and snowmen, I cannot fathom temperatures of that coolness ... I am in Australia and it is hot hot hot, 31 (celcius) today and spent at the beach!
    We could've done with a little bit of cool!
    Anyway, your card creation is perfect and oh so adorable!
