Happy Monday!

Hope all is well with everyone here in blogland - thanks for visiting!
Quite a grey day but at least the overnight rain has stopped - had a reasonably craftie productive day yesterday - gots lots stamped and coloured - now all I have to do is assemble them all onto papers and cardstock!!! 
This card is for my own stash - I love these snowmen from Sassy Cheryl - the whole collection make me smile - and isn't this one just brill with his cup of cappucino - just what is needed on a cold grey November day - complete with marshmallows of course!!

I wanted to give him a 'cool' look so opted for the blue/brown colour scheme rather than trad christmas colours. I used some glamour dust on his scarf and dotted his clothes with a white gel pen. The spotty background paper just seemed to fit him even though it's not specifically a Christmas paper!
The sentiment is a freebie but I altered the centre wording to something I thought more appropriate for a coffee bringing snowman (!) and the blue seam binding ribbon was a pressie. I threaded a sparkly snowflake button through the ribbon and finished off with some punched snowflakes with tiny gems for sparkle.
