Christmas joy . . . maybe

It's Wednesday again which can mean just one thing . . . another challenge at Stampotique and this week our hostess is our brilliant team captain Claudine and the theme she has chosen is 'Alphabets'.
I might not have interpreted the theme quite right this week but I had fun anyway with this wonderful snowman. I just love the look on his face and I would so love a hat like his!
The stamps I used are:
I began my card by painting it a neutral tan colour and adding the cracks in a darker brown. I painted the branch with leaves and berries and then stamped the sentiment straight on to the card whilst Snowman was stamped on white card and coloured with Prismacolour pencils before being glued in place.Glitter around the edges added some Christmas bling.
The challenge details can be found by clicking here. Just by entering you could win $30/£20 approx to spend at Stampotique. Good Luck!!
Wishing you a fab day. Sam xxx

  7. Surely it fits the criteria, you used alphabet stamps after all!
    He looks so sad this snowman, my heart is melting for him but he has nothing to be sad about, not when wearing such a spectacular hat!!!
