on the second day of Christmas...

"my true love gave to me, two turtle doves & a partridge in a pear tree"

"Let's continue our awesome contest with another round -- Create a card with a bird or a turtle (or reptile) on it. Load it into the photos area using the keyword/tag "12day2" (all lowercase) and you'll be entered to win a prize from The Cat's Pajamas -- the Elegant Christmas set. It's a GREAT prize -- watch out -- don't get drool on your keyboard! I can't wait to see what you make!"

Todays card is based off this weeks Lizzie Anne Designs sketch #54. ok, its loosely based off the sketch, lol! Instead of the 3 separate circles, I combined them to make the snowman. I just realized that I forgot about the twist of making it a thank you card. oops.

I created the snowman by cutting 3 circles from fun foam, added some branches that I cut out, a few circles punched with an eyelet setter became buttons and coal mouth, brads for eyes...you get the idea. The "ribbon" is leftover scraps from my sons mummy costume.


supplies used:
stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs Gizmos and Gears (snowflake design)
sticker: Making Memories
snowman: my own design

That was a very clever way to bring in the circles from the sketch.
