Lawnscaping challenge #23

Hello Hello!!

First up, a HUGE thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments for the blog hop I organised for Joy's birthday--both to Joy, wishing her a fabulous day, but also to me about the card I made (and the early birthday wishes!!) It was a huge success and I'm so pleased everyone liked it (especially Joy--thought she might drive down to my house and give me a smack for telling everyone it was her b-day!)

ANyhoo, on to the card!

This is my submission to the current Lawnscaping Challenge, 

Here is my tag:

Keep cool tag

Get it?! Keep Cool...they're snowmen, so they can't exactly be hot?! *is everyone else giggling*?! lol I think I've lost my mind...

Please feel free to notice that the bottle of wine isn't full lol! (don't worry, it's not a gift that I've drunk out of haha!)

I simply cut a piece of white cardstock 3"x 5" and rounded the edges with my corner chomper. Next I punched a circle out, and stamped my imgaes on. I paper pieced the hat, scarves and earmuffs. A little copic colouring on the snowmen to give shadowing and nose-colour.

Everything on this tag is from the Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends stamp set (my new fave clearly!) except for the setniment which is Sally's ABCs.

Finally I added a little scoremark on either side of the circle, so the tag would sit on the bottle properly (if you dont fold it , the tag sticks out horizontally).

Here are the tools and products I used:

So cute! Love the paper you picked for the scarves and hats. They look nice and warm and snugly.
