The Dieting Snowman

I did a bit of digi shopping over at Sassy Cheryl's over the weekend and came out with a few snowmen and a beach girl. This is by far my favorite snowman. He is a delight to color and has so much personality I think you can get him to say just about anything. Here i have him saying, "Its as I say, the weight always comes off with the warmer weather..." 
A front view:

My recipe:
Dps: No idea
Circles: Nestabilities
Image: Sassy Cheryl's
Colors: Derwent Graphitint and a touch of Prismacolor
Sentiment: my own sick mind
Scallops and lace : Borderabilities and MS punch
3D foam pads: Recollection
Pearls: Recollection
Buttons: assorted
Stitching: gel pen
Buckle: lost packaging. I think its" making memories"


This is one of two cards I made last night while watching BBC's North &South. I used the same color scheme for two very different cards. (the second is a summer card) and can you believe I'm still not done the movie?? Its a long one. But thats ok cos Ive seen it so many times I know the wonderful ending....

I would like to enter this in three challenges:

Cute Card Thursday: Anything goes

Happy Monday to you all!! :-)

Hey Dorcas,
I really like this card - really like to colours, and the bold prints and block colours give it a really cool yet simple look.

And thumbs up on North and South - LOVE that film! My copy's still lost - will need to get on and get another one!
