Quick Christmas Make

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  We are going out tonight to celebrate a friend's birthday so thought I had better get this posted before I go.  Not sure what time will be up in the morning lol.

This stamp is one of my new christmas purchases.  It is from Woodware and I think it is so cute.  I decided to paper piece the stamp.  All of the papers used to paper piece were in my stash box.  The background paper was from a free paper pack that I got in a magazine last year.  I think it is My Mind's Eye but not too sure.  Although it doesn't show up very well in the photo the backing paper is a lovely shade of green.  Kept it quite simple and just added some ribbon and card candi as embellishments.
I really like the way the snowman came out but don't think I will be doing too many of them this way.  It seemed to take an age cutting out all the pieces lol.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Anything Goes - Early christmas
Forever Friends - Ribbon
Stampin for the Weekend - Starting Christmas Early
Papertake - Things that make you go awww (can't resist a sweet snowman)

Thanks for popping by and will be by tomorrow with some DT cards for you.
Take care.
