Mr Frosty Face

Core blimey is freezing brass monkeys here, Hello my dearies I do hope you’re all well keeping warm and are not to snowed in (it has gone from here mostly now but some of the roads are still very slippery)
Now then I have some exciting news last week I was asked to join the wonderful Dream Team for Maurie Manning!!! Yayyyyyy so so excited I couldn’t believe it when I got a message telling me (as you will all know if you are regular to my blog I love Mo’s images)
You will have to wait until Fri 22nd Dec for my 1st official DT post but here’s a card I made last night for you.
It’s an 8x8” card blank made from Kraft card the image and wording have also been printed on Kraft. Now I got the idea for the card from a lady that posted a card on the Polkadoodles FB page. She had made a Robin and put the poem about little robin red breast, I was looking for a really cute but simple idea for a card I wanted to make that will need to be posted so wanted the front to be as flat as possible (now you know me I love piling stuff on regardless)
The backing paper is from #Polkadoodles  it’s from the festive Christmas coleection (link below) which I have distressed the edges of. 
I coloured the image (giggling snowman again link below) with a mix of polychrome, Prisma and luminance pencils. Then I typed the poem can’t remember where it came from have had it for ages. I then cut to size and stuck to front of card with 3D tape.
It did need a little something so I added a chipboard snowflake that I covered in frontage and that was the front done.

For the insert I used the paper from the front with a white faded matt then added the snowman, I decided I wanted to colour this one rather than just leave plain due to the CAS style of the front. Then, I just added a simple Christmas Greeting.

Hope you like it and I will see you very soon
