Sorry Snowman.

Hi everyone!

I'm back today with a card for you that I've had in my head for weeks now. As soon as I saw Lawn Fawn's Making Frosty Friends stamp set, it came to me.

It's based on a series of hysterical (if not slightly very off-kilter) comic strips from the series Calvin And Hobbes. (If you haven't read them, please do, they're so perfect for a giggle. Calvin is a little boy and Hobbes is his toy tiger (who comes to life when no one else is around). There are a 'series' of Calvin making snowmen in his front yard...and the snowmen are all maniacs. They're disturbing but oh so funny in a way that only a little kid can be.

Anyway, I wanted to make kind of a funny "Sorry" card. This will be entered into JG's nook's latest challenge, to use your Christmas stamps for a non Christmas card.

So here it is:



Yes, I may or may not have a sick sense of humour, but I can't stop laughing....



Here are the products I used (all very self explanatory) 




       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   
       
           
                                                               
       
   







Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed it! I'll be back soon with some more cards :)

Have an amazing day!
