Frosty the Snowman

Evening Everyone
I can't believe that another weekend is at an end, I hope that you had a good one.
I am finally on top of most of my DT work, and have even managed to catch up on some commenting!!
In fact I have even made a couple of Christmas cards.
It's a good job that I did so well with them in April since May was a terrible let down, I only managed 2. June hasn't been much better since although I have made several Christmas cards they are for something rather special, and so won't end up in my stash.
Oh well never mind.
My card tonight has been made to enter into the challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown where they are looking for Snowmen.
They are also looking for DT members so don't forget to check it out.
Once again I have used bits from my Christmas box.
The Snowman in the panel has been sponged with dye based ink, and then painted with neat thin bleach to take the colour out of the Snowman and snowflakes.
The background is the resist technique.
I think that the stamps used are from Penny Black but I wouldn't swear to it.
The panel was created on a scalloped glossy card and I added some tiny white dots with a Souffle Pen.
I would also like to enter it into the challenge at ABC Christmas challenges where L is for Lyrics (Frosty the Snowman)
