Snowman Galore....

Another beauty day ahead...I wish our whole winter would just stay like this...no snow, no below 0 temperatures! I do have to admit, I have a true love of snowman stamps! So out came another snowman image to do this card!




I found this pattern for making these little fabric boxes and thought I would try it out and make a tissue box holder for the holidays. The pattern can be found here!

Have a wonderful weekend, and thank-you so much for popping in for a visit!

Hi Christine. Absolutely gorgeous set. The snowman image is so cute. I prefer snowmen to santas etc at Christmas. The tissue box is such a clever idea. Your home must be really beautiful at Christmas with all the these handmade items. Have a good weekend. Donna

OH I love this snowman he looks like frosty... What a cozy tissue cover. So creative Christine!! I hear ya about the weather it is so weird this year no snow and pretty nice for this time of year.. The weather lady says it is suppose to change next week though.. Just a question how many trees do you put up at Christmas? I bet it feel like country warmth at your house !! Love your style :)
