Christmas Card Club - Roll up Roll up, snowballs and glitter

Good morning all. Happy Mother's Day, I hope all of you with kids are being spoilt today. I'm hopefully having a lie in when this goes live then being taken out for lunch.........watch this space!
Managed to get all the housework and laundry done these last two days - even got the ironing basket emptied!! Managed to get to choosing yesterday and made today's share and some DT cards.

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club and it was Sue's turn to set the theme, she chose a "Roll up, Roll up, Snowballs and Glitter".  Here's my card:

This one had me stumped for a while until the thought occurred to me that snowmen were made with giant snowballs! I've used snow mice for this card. House Mouse decoupage from Joanna Sheen. Square die from Spellbinders. Stickles, Glamour Dust, gems and ribbon from my stash.

You'll find the links to the other girls in my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.
