Sweet Thankful Snowman

I just adore this precious little snowman from Penny Black!  He makes me smile!
I used Penny Black stamps:
Sweet snowman 40-006 (main image)
Salutations 30-014 (Thank you)
Winter whites & greens 30-057 (tree and embossed snowflakes)
Inside of card:  Jolly friends 30-058 (hat and snowflake)

I stamped the snowman onto an A2 card and used watercolor and Tombow markers to paint him.  I masked him and stamped the tree behind him, and added some Faber Castell pastel with a cotton ball.  I made some 'hills' by cutting a paper scrap into curved shapes, then rubbed the pastels over the paper onto the card.

The snowflakes are embossed with Judi-Kins agean silver embossing powder.  In real life these snowflakes twinkle with lots of sparkly, colors.

Inside I stamped the thank you, and fussy-cut the hat from the snowman in the jolly friends set, along with some snowflakes.  
 I am adding my card to these challenges:

Tomorrow I will be making my pies for Thanksgiving, and getting the house ready for the 'kids.'  I love family gatherings, especially at the holidays.  We are blessed, indeed, to have our family, and I cherish every moment with them. 

Blessings, and happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!
