Christmas Card Club Challenge #9 Humour

 Hi Crafters,

It's time for our Christmas Card Club to meet again and this week Rachel wants to see Humour in your card. We also have the 'Anything Goes' option so I have gone for that this time although this fun little snowman character makes me smile every time I see him, he's cute don't you think?

He's another downloaded card kit from Card Making Downloads this time. He has several layers to him and I placed glossy accents on his carrot nose. A little swish of glitter to accent the snow slopes and a scalloped background panel.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Creative Fingers - #206 ATG

CHNC Every Saturday - #539 ATG Christmas/ For a Child

Crafty Creations - #420 ATG
