Snowman Shape Card

     It's finally snowed here in Minnesota. Tuesday it was 50 degrees. People were golfing, rooftop patios were open and shorts were a common sight.
     Yesterday, as I watched the tiny flakes slowly cover the grass, I was reminded that  I still live in Minnesota and we have at least 2-3 more months of this. So I'm embracing it, in my crafting at least.
     I used my Gypsy to weld two snowmen from the Winter Frolic cartridge together. I used Peachy Keen's Wide Eyed Kids for his face. The banner he's holding is from April Showers.
     I used a lot of a favorite technique of mine (glossy accents+glitter). I used it on the ear muffs and for the work thanks. For his buttons I used my Zig pen and MS glitter.

Aww, isn't he so cute? :) Love those ear muffs and that PKS face is adorable. I hear you about Winter - I'm in Canada, and even we've had abnormally warm weather thus far. Apparently the cold and snow start this weekend. *sigh* What can you do, right?

Thanks so much for linking up at CWC this week. :)
