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!!!

These cards are really cute. The embossing lends great texture. The funniest part is the heart mouth!
