Snowman tag

Hi again, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
A storm is brewing here this afternoon so there will probably be a mad scamper to bring washing in and to shut windows soon!

I was inspired to make this tag by the challenge at The Card Concept.
I was just going to make a winter scene as I don't have any snowman stamps or dies.
I used some snow tex paste I bought a while ago to spread on the branches and at the base of the tree, and realized that it could cover a couple of circles to make a snowman too!
The heat is definitely affecting me lol!
I think my card fits the clean and layered category.

I'm also linking up to the challenge at Virginia's View where the theme is distressing.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has a holiday theme.

Thanks for visiting,

  8. What a cute tag this is! I love that you used texture paste to make your snowman. How clever. It seems funny to see the tag as you are taking the wash off the line in a storm and knowing the heat is so bad. I hope your storms are over and no damage done.
