Good Afternoon!
Second card of the day! and what better than another Christmas card..
Must admit I've made five like this one to boost my pile. Using the same papers mixed/matched!

This cute image is called Mitten Snowman  and it comes with three sentiments and I've used this one..
Coloured with Copics. Papers are all from LOTV which I've distressed and painted round the edge with a  'white paste' . I'm saying white paste cause I bought in at a craft show many moons ago and what it was originally intended for? Didn't work for me lol. So it's just sat on my desk till now! 
{ Knew it would come in sometime}.. Red pearls from stash..The little white heart are from Range..
