Snow People

Time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and this month's theme is Snowmen/People so let's see what wintery delights you can come up with.  I must say, just the thought of snowmen gave me a chill... hehehee... the massive quantity of snow we had this past winter is still very fresh in my mind so I really didn't want to be reminded of it but hey, a challenge is a challenge, right?
Our sponsor this month is My Mum's Craft Shop who is giving a £10 voucher to the shop.
This cute snowman and sentiment is from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and is designed by Cheryl Alger and titled Frosty Winter Friends,   I used MFT Die-Namics Fishtail die, the paper is by Memory Box  and the buttons are from my stash.  
Copics:
Snowman - W3, W1, W0
Jacket - G85, G82, G00
Lastly, I added some Dry Fine Stickles to the snowman, made some dots with a Viva Pearl Pen and added snow using Twinklets Diamond Dust.
