Where did you get that hat?

Good morning, a quick post from me today as I have a busy day to visit Mum in a bit, pop into library on the way to top up essential 'book fix', then this evening I'm off to the cinema with my lovely daughter, we're going to see 'Room', I loved the book so I hope I'm not disappointed with the film! Still, it'll be a treat to spend some time with Steph!
The card is my DT make for this week's challenge at Fab N Funky -as it's the last Wednesday of the month the theme is 'Christmas'!  The cute snowman is a Woodware stamp, coloured with copics (that took the longest) , matted onto red then green cardstock . The stamp is quite big and fits perfectly onto a DL size card! Quick and simple! I liked it so I made 2 more, the left hand one using a chalkboard technique, sorry totally rubbish photo but looks qutie effective IRL (quick too!), the other one is paper pieced.

 I'm quite proud of the start I've made on 2016 Christmas won't last but I'm determined to be well ahead this year so there's no last minute rush to get them finished. Why not join us at Fab N Funky this week with your own Christmas make? You'll certainly be pleased you did when next December is arrives, and you could be the lucky winner of a fabulous prize from our sponsor this week 

Thanks for visiting , hope your day is a good one!

Oh my, they've made Room in to a movie? The book was in my holiday cottage a couple of years ago and I started it then, was so hooked I ordered it from the library on my return home and finished. I loved it too which would make me very wary of the film, there are very few book-films that live up to expectation for me. Very interested to hear what you think of it, I'll expect an in depth review tomorrow!

Anyway, moving on! Loving your fab snowman,all the cards look so different especially the chalkboard. Very proud of your Christmas efforts too, keep it up girl! xx
