Iris's Mini Christmas Plaques

My apologies, I know, I know ...... it's far too early for little ones to be thinking about Christmas, but these are the little plaques Iris made a couple of weeks ago using mini wooden frames from Poundlands craft section ......
........ and some of the snowmen embellishments I found in Michaels in New York a year or so ago.  My own Christmas projects are gathering pace, but I really didn't want to encourage Iris to become embroiled in the festive season so early on in the year. However, during her visit she just happened to stumble upon a wonderful drawer of treasure. For her it was just about wanting to create something using some of it and absolutley nothing to do with the time of year.  So,what's a nan to do, say you've got to wait until November/December before you can use all those lovely tempting bits and pieces? 
I have to admit to being a little reticent when her little eyes settled upon the snowmen, but then I thought, what the heck, what's the point in squirrelling them away, when they were meant to be used, especially as I cleared the shelf in Michaels of all they had anyway, so I had more than enough for my own use as well.
I just love the innocence of everything she has created and it's also given me a few ideas for card designs and a few Christmas tree decorations of my own.
