Christmas Card Club - Snowmen

My goodness these two weeks seem to come round so quickly!  Well it's the weekend so naturally it is raining but just that horrible drizzle - "sea fret" as we called it in the north east.  I would much rather have a good old downpour.  Hope you are all fit and well.

My goodness these two weeks seem to come round so quickly! This card is not due until tomorrow but I have another card topost then so su usual I am posing a day early.  Lorraine has chosen our theme this week and it is snowmen.

My Card


My Card
6 inch square kraft base card - Anna Marie Designs
backing paper - "Handmade Holiday" by Simple Stories
Image - Lili of the Valley topper
sentiment stamp - unsureof make I'm afraid
gems from stash

I really like this backing paper which actually I felt didn't need anything adding to it apart from the gems.  A very simple, flat card.  My purse will appreciate all these flat cards when it comes time tobuy the stamps!!

Well that's all for today.

Love these LOTV toppers, such a shame they are no longer available. Your card is gorgeous and I love the backing paper too, don't know how you managed to cut in to it - I have lots of stroking only papers, lol.

Always love when the UK folks use the LOTV images..they are so delightful to see. This one looks great and the background grid paper works wonderfully well with this image too. Liked the jewels & snowflakes in the corners. Very classy look on this pretty card. TFS & Hugs

Fabulous DP used for the backing of this lovely card. The LOTV topper is beautiful and the mixed red and clear diamonds on the backing paper give the perfect finishing touch.
