Hello everyone, my good friend Vivian (aka blusky on SCS) is a perennial hostess of  many swaps, and one of them, is her recent 'Shape cards swap' in which all partecipants are nudged to make a card in any shape format they like ,therefore I decided to create my very own original fun snow-person. Well, my first attempt at it didn't quite fully satisfy me. The bottom left side looked too flat as you can see here below on  your left. Then I tried a different approach and liked the result much better. Made my own templates and voila'....a 'snow-diva' was born! :o)
The red cute round nose was made from recycling
Christmas crackers' round ties as U can see below  here.
Oh yessss, I do love recycling!!

Here's a group smiling picture for my opinion, they turned out rather cute :o) 

Lastly....individual pictures....say 'cheeeeeseee'!! LOL
I hope that the recipient like my original take on shaped cards.
I call these my 'shapely snow~divas' fits well don't you agree ?
Come back and visit again...I may have more fun things to show ya soon..... :o)
Ciao for now, with many blessings sent your way~~~~*

Seriously, these cards are brilliant! I just love their faces, how you embossed the circles first, recycled for their embellishments, everything about them!!!
