The Christmas Kickstart Challenge #8 - Frosty and Friends!

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal
Frosty the snowman is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow but the children
Know how he came to life one day...

It's time for Challenge #8 and (if you not already worked it out) 
our theme is all about SNOWMEN!

For this challenge we're welcoming back Guest Elf Gail from Crafty Nomad!

Gail will be keeping me company during Challenge #8 and Challenge #9, although I have no idea how she'll find time as she is my partner in crime over at The Card Chain Challenge in addition to her duties at Blank Page Muse* Rubber Dance Blog *Lost Coasters ReviewColourCraft and Lost Coast Portal To Creativity - Events and Challenge Blog. She is one busy crafting lady!
Here's Gail's card - I love how surprised this snowman looks: perhaps he only just discovered he's a snowman!

My offering features my all-time favourite snowman stamp: Snowy from Penny Black.

Once again we have a prize on offer, which will be randomly drawn by the lovely Rudolph.

Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

  5. Well, as I love snowman themes, I'll have to rummage through my stamps to whip something up for this round. I know just the image to use, and Gail's hilarious snowman design inspired me.

  6. Thanks for another great challenge Jo and for the lovely inspiration from yourself and Gail.

    I think I would have run out of themes by now LOL!!

    Love Jules xx
