Frosty the Snowman!

Good morning - Friday already! Where did that week go? I seem to have done the usual rushing around and not getting very far! But had an enjoyable couple of hours yesterday, visiting my local craft shop, CardCraftUK and then going for some lunch with my daughter - two of my favourite things (crafting & food!). We're so lucky to have a good craft shop nearby, but the problem is I can never come out empty handed. Went in for some white card and somehow managed to emerge with two scrummy paper pads from First Edition! As if I haven't got enough paper! Sigh.
So, as it's Friday that means it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz - and guess who's hosting this week's challenge? Yep, it's ME! So do pop over and have a look at the great DT inspiration. And don't forget that there is a DT call going on at the moment - there are more details on the CraftyCatz challenge blog!
And I've picked a nice easy one this week - 'Buttons'! We just want to see at least one button on your creation - how easy is that??
So here's my 'buttons' effort

I've used an image from this week's sponsor The Stamping Boutique - this cute snowman. 
The kraft backing papers are from LOTV, with some red card for matting and red ribbon from stash. 
I've coloured the image with promarkers and added stickles and some glossy accents on the buttons. The red 'snowflake' is from Spellbinders Persian Motifs (with added stickles!) and a snowman button.  Then three buttons with twine. The sentiment stamp is from LOTV. 
Hope you like it! So do pop over to CraftyCatz, get out your buttons and join in!
Back soon, Kim x
