Frosty the Snowman....

 

Hi Peeps....

OK, I'm singing the song - does anyone else remember 'Frosty the Snowman' from our younger days?? LOL!  Showing my age I think!

Today's card is my DT card for CC Designs... and it's another of the gorgeous November/Christmas release..  this IS Frosty!!  He's one of the wonderful Pollycraft rubber stamps and is available HERE in the store.

Now I have a new phone (and I use my phone a lot for taking photos of my cards) - and it is very good at changing the colours that are actually ON my card!  More fiddling with the settings to come I think - my older one got the colours perfect.  Mind you, it could be something to do with the fact that we've had no proper natural light this week..  I think one day, the lights stayed on all day in our house!  So bear with me on the colours please...  oooh and the snowflakes in the shaker bit AREN'T pink!

Hope you've not been affected by the floods over the weekend....  the weather has been pretty awful, hasn't it.... not at all suitable for the little guy above as he'd have melted in the warm temperatures we've been having with all this rain!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting...

  3. Having the same problem myself with the photo's Christine, one I took yesterday was all yellow with no yellow on the card.
    Lovely image and very interesting too, wonder if you could cut out the face bit and put, say for instance one of your Daughters eyes in there from a photo, or a Grandchild.
    Love the addition of the shaker.

  11. Christine, this is wonderful. I have a real love of shaker cards and your design is gorgeous, I love how you have sat that little snowman in front of the shaky bits - and, he is coloured to perfection, I tend to avoid snowmen because I am bothered by colouring white. I also love the paper you have used which matches everything else beautifully. You are a very talented card designer - this is truly exquisite.
