I Love Snowmen!

I love snowmen but I'm really not a big fan of snow....go figure! Our winters here in Manitoba can be brutally cold (-52C is the coldest temperature I have experienced) with tons of snow.  But, when the temperature is mild & the sun is shining there is nothing like getting out there & building a snowman.  When you're finished you get to come inside where it is toasty warm & have hot chocolate with mini marshmallows floating in it!! Fun! At Christmas my house is full of all shapes & sizes of snowmen decorations. So, you can understand why this cute little guy struck my fancy. He is from Penny Black, DP are Echo Park & Bo Bunny, CS is Bazzill, dies are Memory Box Frostyville Wreath (isn't it gorgeous?) & Spellbinder circles & scalloped circles, pearls are Recollections, button is from my stash & the thread is Prism, the sentiment is from FBD. The whole thing is put together with a sketch from Stamps & fun = creativity!
