Daisy Doodles Sammy The Snowman

As our challenges at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges are every fortnight on the
2nd week we take the opportunity to make an extra project to showcase
some of the fabulous digis available from the store.

Jules is having a half price sale until the end of March to help pay for the vet’s bills as some horrible person shot her cat. This is a horrible thing to have happened so I do hope that you will help out and grab yourself a bargain at the same time.

This card is using the cute little image Sammy The Snowman. He is available on his own for the bargain price of only 50 cents at the sale price.

You can also opt to buy the completely chocolate free Daisy Doodles Selection Boxes, 4 images for $2 or all 12 images for $5. As with all images you get 3 different formats so you have a multitude of programs you can use them in and they are really fun images to work with.

Head over to the Daisy Doodles Store to check it out and all the other great digi’s that are available !

I am still making Christmas cards, I am so proud of how many I have made this year already and it was quite lovely today to be colouring this little snowman whilst the snowflakes were gently falling on Sunday J

I have used the latest sketch from Christmas Challenges with Sketches for the layout. The base paper is from a Craftwork Cards Goody Bag, the text paper is from a traditional Christmas paper pack and the snowflake paper is wrapping paper from Paperchase and was in my scraps box. The sentiment is recycled from an old Christmas card and the snowflake is a sticker that I have had for donkeys years.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I drew lines on the scarf with a fine tip and added Glamour Dust glitter to the brim of his hat. Sammy is all twinkly now as any respectable snowman should be. The wrapping paper has metallic silver snowflakes on it but I have just realised that they look gold on the bottom due to the reflection from my bright yellow T-shirt. Just goes to show that not only do I use bright colours on my cards but I wear them too J

I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there from my team mates and we look forward to seeing your entries in for our current Springtime Challenge which ends on Sunday 17th March

I'll see you again next time with another lovely Daisy Doodles design.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 6” x 6”
Papers – Craftwork Cards, Christmas Tidings by Papermania, wrapping paper Paperchase
Embellishments – Snowflake Sticker, Glamour dust glitter

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
