Sweet n' Sassy Sweet Stop challenge #194

I am entering this card in the Sweet n' Sassy Sweet Stop Challenge this week - it is a card sketch with a spin - and the spin is SNOWMAN.  You can find details of their challenge HERE.  As you can imagine, a snowman is a very foreign concept to us here in Australia at this time of year, as we spend our time at the beach, in the pool, or generally basking in the sun - or on the other side of the coin, battling bush fires and coping with the loss and destruction caused by them.  But I do have a daughter who lives with her family in Wisconsin, so know what fun winter can be in the Northern Hemisphere, and how much her little girls love to make snowmen (as I did growing up in England).  So here is my take on the sketch - I can't get away from bolder colours, I'm sorry about that!  The images are from Gina K designs, 'Snow One Like You' stamp set, and this is the first time I have used it.  I love the bird house, as I remember our neighbour in Surrey, who had a bird house in her Broom bush, and the little robins who used the safe haven it provided during winter.  Hope you like my project!  Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Love the color combination and the birdhouse is perfect instead of a ribbon. Thanks for sharing on The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge with a Snowman.

  2. Oops! I have corrected the title to Sweet STOP Sketch - I think my fingers must have been tongue-tied when I typed last night! Thank you Robin for your lovely comment

  3. Cute Mum. The girls always enjoy your cards... especially their Valentine card which arrived today! We are hoping for some snow overnight so they can get out and make a snowman this weekend, but so far all we've had is cold cold cold. Not a lot of playing outdoors since our Christmas break.
