Mr And Mrs Snowman

Good morning, time for a new challenge at Fab'n' Funky...this week the theme is Christmas. 
I'm trying to use some of my older stamps rather than buying new ones...and failing dismally...but this IS an old wooden stamp by Whipper Snapper that I've had for years, used loads but still love! It's called Mr and Mrs Snowman. I used copics to colour, then fussy cut and placed the cute couple on a die cut oval of DP. I gave them some mounds of snow to sit on, very comfy if you're a snowman, not recommended for humans! 
I shaped the top of the card by cutting the corners off to make an arch. Old ribbon from stash, die cut icicles and snowflake. Meant to glitter them up but I forgot!
There's more inspiration from the team over at Fab'n'Funky Challenge Blog, why not hop over and take a look, then get ahead make a start on your Christmas cards and play along!
Thanks for visiting today

One can say an oldie but a goodie. Great shape and love the image and the fabulous design. Another superb creation.
23 days into 2019 and I have not bought anything yet but today I have had quite a few craft vouchers given so I am telling myself that if I use them then I have not really bought anything new as they were really gifts.
Also any mails from craft suppliers I am deleting immediately so I don't look at them and want to buy.
Wonder how long it will last??

This is beautiful. Love the layout. The bright blue is wonderful. We got 7 inches of snow yesterday so snow we have a total of 12 inches and I agree that right's too cold to sit on. We are now having frigid temps. That stamp is adorable. Stay warm!

So so cute Chris! Love this fun image and your card design is brilliant! The icicles and snowy mounds, so clever, hun! Love that an older stamp got an outing too! I must use my older ones more too. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Adorable!!! This image is super cute; sometimes those oldies are still goodies for sure! They look perfect reclining on the snowbanks and the arch at the top really adds a fun touch! Thanks for playing with Di's Digi Designs.
