Sunday Stamper - Week 181 - Frosty The Snowman... ** PLUS Giveaway**

Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all... many thanks for the amazing creations that were entered last week... twas grand to see so many newbies again too! This week the challenge theme is another seasonally oriented one... being... SNOWMEN. Tis a simple one this week, simply include a snowman of some description on your entry.



To join in is simples... make a little something, add in the theme and some stamping and then hop back to this post to leave me a comment along with a link to the place you are showing your entry. Now, as I mentioned yesterday, I have a giveaway this week... and it is my entry... which also made the Tut that I posted yesterday. To be in with a chance of owning this tag, all you need to do is leave a comment... if you also join in with the challenge, your name will be entered twice... the winner will be chosen and random and announced on next Sunday's post. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 26th November 2011.



So... my entry... yes, another Christmas tag... this one is actually the tag from yesterday and I have decorated it with diecuts and bling and other festive stashly goodies. I won't go on about how I got the tag inked up as that has all been said before... and there are Step by Step pics to see how I did it too. I will just mention that I managed to get a photo of the Ghost Stamping, showing the way it changes in the light... you know like those Mickey Mouse watches that if you hold it one way he is smiling and the other way he is waving? *please say yes, otherwise I shall feel ever so daft lol*




I don't know about you but I am getting very festive in the crafting department... I am usually the one grumbling in the corner about the C word and huffing and puffing about card making and the like but this year, I have gone Christmas mad and everything I seem to be making is either covered in bling or it has a pinecone on it lol Mind you, I haven't gone that mad yet, I may have bought all my Bazzill cardstock for the cards but...erm... they are still sitting there, uncut, unused and awaiting attention... well, there's always tomorrow ;O))


Anyways... I am keeping this post short... I am fair pooped after a fab day teaching yesterday ... and have another class today... yep, more festive themed creativity! Before I do go though, I will just say again... THANK YOU everyone for all your support this past week... it has been a tough one for me and each and every comment, email and message has really cheered me up and kept my spirits bouyed. Right, I am away before I start blubbing all over, that is not a pretty sight at all!! Thanks for looking... have a very goodly week... TTFN

Snowmen and women are truly extremely rare at this time of the year in Australia Hels! Yours is a very swish on on your tag indeed.

With a bit of luck I just might be able to create a Tasmanian snowman, as they bery occasionally can be found high on a mountain top in remote parts of Tasmania even on Christmas day!

Helen said...

Your finished tag looks great.Hope today's class goes well to.

Sandy said...

Joanne said...

First of all, congrats on feeling well enough to hold workshops and for making this amazing tag. I followed your instructions and will have a go if I get the chance, there's a shower to re-wall!!!
Hugs Joanne xx

Hazel said...

This is a fab tag, as usual. Because we've been up to our eyes in it here with the decorating being done, I somehow missed what was happening to you with the injections. As one who has suffered back troubles all my life, I so sympathise with you - I hope and pray that the injections bring some relief of pain. Sending you lots of (very gentle) hugs x

Helen said...

Well, I am still on a roll with my Christmas cards so here is today's entry!!

Hi Hels, hope you're feeling ok. I love this tag & the snowman. Will have to search my Christmas crafty stash for a snowman, not sure I have one. A terrible admission!!

Julie said...

Hi Hels I wanted to give you a lovely compliment. At least half a dozen of my regular class ladies have subscribed to Craft Stamper very recently. The other day during our break you were the topic of conversation and every one of the women there remarked on how uch they enjoy your articles and your adventurous methods in Craft Stamper.
I hope you feel a little warmer from that.
Your suntanned Aussie friend. Julie

Kezzy said...

Gorgeous tag, love it. I can't believe I missed your traumatic time, I've been down with an infection so missed out blog hopping. You poor thing, I cry when I have mine done, don't think there the same as yours as I'm able to have a couple more (I hope) and I have no metal in my back, but mine is in my lower back and I'm not sure anyone can really explain what its like, the local is like mega bee stings which has to be done through the continuous procedure, and then it takes loads of painful prodding with big needles and lots of photos being taken all the while you are in an operating theatre which stinks of sterile smells. I have had four in my back, and have had the procedure done twice, (hopefully more to come I find out at pain clinic in December). Its so painful for days/week after but then I can walk pain free for a couple of months. The first time I had a lovely older male nurse who held my hand all the way through it, the second time I had a nurse who didn't help at all. All the best with it, I really feel for what your going through. Kezzy x

Hels, I love your snowman!! I really appreciate the inspiration - I ended up making something that I loved. I would have never made it if it hadn't been for your challenge, so thanks!
