Believe in the Magic...

 Good morning, it's a chilly one today! Have to say I prefer cold and sunny to wet and miserable, I hate it when it's dark all day, I can understand why so many people struggle during the winter months.

There's a new challenge starting today over at Fab'n' Funky, Pat  has chosen the lovely theme of Snowmen, perfect for this time of year! 

Back in the summer I treated myself to this beautiful bauble stencil from Sweet Poppy, it was on my wish list for ages and I saw it at the only craft fair I've managed to get to this year. The snowman is a tiny wooden stamp, I've had him for years and he makes an appearance every Christmas, he's so cute and happy and he fits perfectly inside the bauble! I stamped and white embossed the tiny snowflakes above him. The sentiment is also embossed. 

Please pop over to Fab'n' Funky to see the lovely creations from my teamies, then why not dig out your own favourite snowfolk  digis,  stamps and dies and create something fabulous to share with us.

Thanks for stopping by

Like Lynn it's one of my favourite stencils and love how you have put a fun spin on it with the Snowman. Chilly and dark here as well, but much better than the rain we had earlier in the week.

What a fabulous card Chris, that bauble stencil is gorgeous and looks great with the lovely tiny snowman inside. It’s so nice to see the sun shining even though it is so cold, great after all the wet dark days recently.

You've done a fantastic job with the stencil Chris, the colouring is very precise. I love the snow flakes you've added to the bauble itself, and who could resist such a jolly little snowman?! Lovely.
