thanks for popping by, It's been a hard week for me this week, I took very ill on Sunday with a nasty bug, and been laid up in bed since, however, took a turn for the better early hours of this morning, so I managed to finish this card that was started a week ago, I used kraft card square blank, added a panel of docrafts xmas paper, used the frame digital stamps from digistamp boutique, coloured with promarkers and used some fake snow for the hat and beard, I also used my marianne snowflake die along with my new memory box snowflake die, added a red gem from stash and the sentiment was from a penny black clear stamp set....Hope you have a great day, happy crafting ...Lorsx
