Snowmen @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings Beautiful People!
It is time for a new challenge at

And this week’s theme is....
Ohh I am {heart-ing} the theme this week! 

I have promised myself that one day, I will see a white Christmas!
 (maybe when the kids have all left home lol)  
till then, I will have to make do with my  these little guys sitting around the house
 Least they will not melt! lol

 1st close up - 'Snowy' as the kids have nicknamed him. 

 Fluffy is second :) 

 And Summer is last - This would have to be truest Aussie Snowman I have seen! 
Made of hay / straw, dust & possibly a little mud if it has rained :)

As always, I have been having some fun in my craft-room!  These little guys stemmed from some round candle votive glasses, Styrofoam balls & paper rosette's cut with my Cameo to 'hold their heads on & keep them all together in piece.  'Snowy' has had a covering from heat to toe with 3d Fabric paint.  'Fluffy' has had his belly stuffed with pillow stuffing, 'Summer' has some brown wood fibers in his belly & both have had some paper mache-ing with scraps to make their heads from the styrofoam ball.  Lastly to finish them off, some googly eyes were added, along with some paper noses, ribbon, lace, twine, pearls & bits & bobs to embellish them all over. 

I think they look darn cute!  
Hubby on the other hand, thinks I have lost the blot & is considering having me admitted to the local physiatric ward for being able to Christmas all year long & putting these little guys out on display already!   I say they are too cute to be sitting in a cupboard for 11 months of the year :)

This week the
Christmas Card Challenge girls  
have all been playing in the snow 
& have some delectable creations to share with you!

Aww bless Leesa… I sometimes forget that some folk have never seen a white Christmas… there are not so many here now in UK but there have been a few and it does make Christmas magical… even for grown ups!! :-)))
Your snowmen are so cute and gorgeous !! I tried to pick a favourite but can't…. love them all and I agree that they are way too cute to be hidden away in cupboard for months !!
Hope you have a lovely evening!
Big Hugs

Leesa, your snowmen are adorable & really should be displayed all the time...too cute to hide away! NOW, if you want to see a white Christmas you are more than welcome to come for a visit to my little corner of the planet...we had 25cm of snow over the weekend....I have never seen a green Christmas! LOL
Hugs, Renee

Love the creativeness here. They are just too cute. Thanks for playing along at Jackson's digital Expressions

Julia Dunnit said...

Brilliant wash to make these, how inspired you are! Im with your Hubby though..I think the less time they are on display, the more special the time they are out...does that make sense. Doubtful!!

Lady Bug Stampers said...

Wow What a great idea!!! Love these little guys my daughter loves and collects snowmen and would love these so guess her gift is going to be these. Thanks for the inspiration and for playing along with us at Created with Love Challenges.
