Cherly Algers' Snowman showing up at Squigglefly

This week at Squigglefly, we were asked to use "Dear or Deer" in our creations and I chose to use one of my favorite artist's Snowman creations. 

Cheryl Alger has many talents, but one of them is her heartwarming Snowmen.  You can't help but smile when you see them and so it is with me..This one is called Bashful Betty the Snowman and I'm so happy with the results!  I have the perfect friend to send this to for Christmas so it was easy to use the term "Dear" on my card.

This card was done on a packet of 6 x 6 scalloped card blanks that I ordered long ago from England of all places.  Lovingly using one of my fav color combo's. blue & green, I had the perfect matching paper!  I fancy cut Betty, used foam dots to elevate her and the sentiment (computer generated) and used a Jolly sentiment on the inside with a snowflake sticker.  I'm having such fun working on Christmas cards this early!  For a little sparkle, I put orange stickles on the noses.  Please come and join us this week and, if you use a SF image, you could win another one from the extensive shop there!  We'd love to see what you come up with!
