My Time To Craft 'Snowmen' Challenge

Good morning lovely ladies, I hope you are all keeping warm after that temperature drop yesterday and those of you on the other side had a wonderful Thanks Giving.

I am here today with my card for this week's My Time To Craft challenge which is 'Snowmen'. A few week's back my local craft shop Let's Create which is owned by Jo Channon (A regular on create and craft) had a whole day of Little Claire workshop's, which were great fun especially as I won everything I used to create this card! I have a whole host of products all of which I love. 

The image is from The Hobby House art pad called 'Warmest Wishes', the designer paper is from First Edition 'Nordic Christmas' and then the ribbon, twine and embellies were all hand picked for the kit by The Hobby House. I added Stampendous Fran-tage (also in the kit) after colouring but my heat gun wouldn't melt it to start and then went made all of a sudden and because I was heating from the back didn't notice until the damage was done whoops. 

Supplies:-
6" Square Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill
Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments
Die Cuts - Spellbinders 'Classic Square'
Ribbon, Twine & Charm - The Hobby House Kit

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-

That's all from me but just before I go I have to tell you about my little grandson Harley who is now 2 and a half. I was away last week for a few days and left a couple of cards on my desk ready to photograph when home except they were missing. I searched everywhere and found one behind his toy box but could not locate the other until he was here this week and asked. Where was it, in the bin of course because it was YUCK and his reasoning for it was it was BLACK and gold lol. Remind me never to ask his opinion on my cards in future lol.
