Happy Snowmen for Merry Mondays.....

Hello everyone: Thankfully, some of my computer issues have been resolved so today, I have a smile on my face, not only because the internet is working fine again but because of this card I made for the Merry Monday Christmas challenge , I don't know about you, but this super cute Snowmen just make happy.
This week the challenge's theme is "Funky Hats" and think this hats the snowmen are wearing, might not look to funky but I think they fit the theme, because they're kind of big so, to me, they look totally Funky on the heads of these guys.  This card was made with a combination of two stamps, one super old by Tara Reed Designs I bought at Michael's maybe 5 years ago and the other one, which is a new  Power Poppy  set by Marcella Howley called "Merry Littles", it has a whole lot of little images, all of them beautiful, for this card I used the hat. I stamped the snow men on water color paper with Stazon Ink and with an Extacto knife, I cut their noses just on the sides to be able to fit the hat under them, then I stamped the hat 5 times, colored them and fussy cut them, applied some Crystal Effects and sprinkle some fine glitter. Here is a close up of this cute hats.
I colored the hats, scarfs and the little snowmen noses with SU markers and the aqua painter, cut a bit of gold glimmer paper for the top and bottom of the image and that was it. Not complicated and rather fast to finish.
Thank you so much for visiting and for your comments. As always, I read each one of them and appreciate each word you write. If you have any questions about this card, please feel free to ask me.
Till next time.
Hugs.
Maria.

Thanks Patti, it was truly super fast to make, what took me the longest was to pour the glitter back into their little containers, it kind of went everywhere, my stamp room look like it was visited by some Fairies who sprinkled some Fairy Dust all over.

Thank you Sonny, like I told Patti, it was a real task to put the glitter back into the little tubes, sheeesh!! no kidding!!! But it was so worth it, those smiling snowmen are just so darn cute.
