Snow Happy!

I've made a Christmas card, in June and not even for a Christmas challenge - how mad is that?
I've used the sketch from this month's CLP challenge #37 and teamed it up with lots of old Christmas supplies.  Papers from DCWV and Dovecraft, a Papermania felt snowflake and Brenda Pinnick chipboard.  The acetate overlay has been in my Christmas box so long I've no idea where it came from.  The same for most of the other supplies, apart from the 'Happy' which is from The Girls Paperie.  I really won't need any new Christmas papers this year, but don't you just get fed up with the same old ones?
My Magnolia snowman is coloured with Copics:
Shading - B60
Pinks - R85, RV13
Arms - E35
Star - YR 23

And there's lots of Stardust Stickles on there too!
Other challenges:
Magnolia Down Under #101 - Acetate 
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Buttons

I know exactly what you mean about having many xmas papers but not wanting to use them anymore. So I figured if I could make some from last year's papers before the new ones come out...LOL!! I'm with ou on that one. This snowman is soooooo cute!!! I love your take on the challenge at MDUC this week. Thanks for joining us and hope to see you again! Hugs!
