My Christmas Card for 2009

Picture 025
This is the Christmas card I will be sending out this year.  It features a photograph of two tiny snowman I made on the garden table in February, when we had a surprise fall of snow.  They have stones for eyes, twigs for arms and ripped up tea towel for scarves!
Once printed on a linen effect card, the picture has been mat and layered several times on silver mirror and red card.  It has been set at a jaunty angle, with a tiny peg giving it a just put together look, and the whole thing is completed with a two snowflake punchies with clear gem centre. I have handwritten the greeting, again mat and layered on silver.
The snowmen are supposed to look like me and my husband!!!!
