'S' is for Snowman - Christmas Club


Hi everyone it's time for our friendly Christmas club challenge and this week it is the lovely Hazel's turn to choose our theme and she has chosen 'Something beginning with 'S' so I have used this lovely LOTV image with a snowman on. I have used lots of snippets of pieces of Christmas paper I have in my stash and another fab free 'Happy Christmas' die from a magazine. I'm really sorry if I haven't managed to get around your blog yet but I have had to schedule posts while we are back and forth to the hospital. I've passed all your good wishes onto the hubster and he's very grateful..he never complains at all bless him and just gets on with it but so far his machine is keeping his heart ticking along nicely and his tests have come back ok so hopefully I get some quiet time and I promise I will get around to visit you all. TFL and lots of hugglesssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Delightful, cheery, colorful - simply wonderful interpretation of the S Challenge. Love the way you create a patchwork background, great use of the MB snowflake border, and a really cute image in that hexagon shape. Please concentrate on getting your DH all taken care of with lots of TLC, and not to worry about blog visiting, you've much more important things to handle just now. Prayers to you both, and Big Hugs & wishes for a very speedy recovery. TFS

Lizzie said...

Wow! Gorgeous! Hugs xx

Sammy said...

Oh this is just lovely Sue! I especially love how you've coloured the gorgeous image! I often find I tend to get bogged down using only two or at most three colours (in various shades) per image when I'm colouring, and frankly, it can get a little boring! This is such a fun image and you've made it look so cheerful. Love it!

Hope everything is going well with hubby. x

Brenda said...

Wow Sue, this is a gorgeous card! I love the "patch work" look with the papers and I love that cute image of the kids building their snowman. So sweet! Those die cuts you used are fabulous as well. Hugs, Brenda

What a festive card! You have the best dies and know how to combine them for the best look. I see you have used that patchwork stuff here again. It's a great look. I understand about scheduled posts... most of mine have been the last 5 weeks.... 3 more to go on this class.
