...another snowman

Did someone say glitter? well I've had enough of that!! It's everywhere - I have to get the hoover out now. I used white and brown glitter - and by the way those are meant to be snowballs!!!!

This is a wee card I made tonight - one of those ones that kind of evolve on their own, it never really had a plan and to be honest i'm not thrilled with it but Shhh don't tell anyone. - not over the moon with the pic it looks better in real life but at least it's finished!!

You can't see but each snowball is edged and coloured with aqua mist before being rolled in glitter, same with the snowman, it does look much better IRL. Off to tidy up now.

ED - OMG I sound like such a moan!! lol - In my defence I was tired last night.
