These Boots Were Made for Snowballing

It's Merry Monday time again.


One of the things I always liked about the snowmen in this set was the boots.

That little snippet of Christmas paper that I used to paper piece his boots
and the tiniest snippet of Glimmer Paper for the snowball will get me into 
Parsnip doesn't have to offer mulled wine twice!

I'm sure all of you are as busy with holiday preparations as we are here.

It's all so much fun though!

I hope you'll have a few minutes to join us at Merry Monday this week.

It will be our last challenge of 2015.

It's been so much fun seeing all your creations
and I'm looking forward to seeing even more in 2016!

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Clever use of some tiny snippets! A cute idea with the snowball too! And I'm loving the background with the frontage snow. (still haven't mastered the frontage stuff yet). This is just doggone adorable, and watch out for those Elves at the Playground. I hear some high jinx have been afoot. So. Fla is sunny & warm, but we left SC in Brrrrr weather. Had an easy - fast moving traffic on the south bound trip, and thankful to arrive safely in port. Merry, Merry & Happy New Year. Hugs & the best in 2016.

What a terrific snowman this is Bonnie! Of course I do so love his boots :) I doubt if I'll be able to join in with Merry Monday, still resting as much as possible in order to at least be able to cook etc. on Christmas Day - even if it means back to bad afterwards!

Thank you for playing along in the Snippets Playground - and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Hugs

Love the way you did the background! Fabulous snow and great idea to use a bit of glitter paper on top of the stamped snowball he's holding. I never would have thought of paper piecing the boots!

Off to check my stamps for something with boots!
