Merry Monday Sketchy Snowman

We've whoosed back around to Merry Monday.


This week, Katie has brought us a sketch.


I saw a snowman in that sketch.

I think he may need a hat though.

What do you think?

The Merry Makers on the Design Team have outdone themselves
so be sure to go take a look.

I used some more snippets including a tiny orange and black piece so I'm off to
Di has done the cutest paper pieced Christmas bird.

I hope you'll add a Christmas card to your stash and join us at
this week.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Love your card and how the ribbon scarf became "banners".

Oh yes - a little top hat would be adorable! But a fantastic card with or without Bonnie.

Be still my heart! You know I love this adorable card. What a fabulous idea for your inspiration. No hat needed...but either way would be just too cute.

Oh Bonnie, what a fabulous imagination you have when you see a sketch - I usually freeze and look like a frightened rabbit in the headlights of a truck :( This is absolutely terrific! I did giggle about the lack of a hat :)

Hugs, Di xx
