Challenge #4 - Cards for Men - "Wintertime"

Good Morning Crafters, well I hope youve all enjoyed a restful weekend and at least most of the snow has gone and now lets hope it stays that way, but for this weeks Challenge we do still want to see your winter designs its called "Wintertime" so dont put those stamps away just yet.
For this Challenge we are being sponsored by Freshly Brewed Designs:-


and Heather is offering a $10. Gift Voucher to spend on her website and here is what she says about herself and her company.

Hi. I am Heather Dennis. I am a homeschooling mother of 2 wonderful children, the wife of 12 years to the love of my life, a Christian and the owner of Fresh Brewed Designs. I have loved to draw and create ever since I was a child. My daughter has inherited my love of art and recently inspired me to start creating again.
All the images in my shop are hand drawn. I offer a wide range of images from coffee, cute and inspirational. I also love to create custom drawn images, so if you are looking for anything in particular, please feel free to drop me an email.


And we were lucky enough to be given several images to play with and I decided to use this one.




And this is called "Snowman Hide and Seek" and you will find it here on the Freshly Brewed Designs Website. I have printed them onto white card and then used my copic pens to colour it afterwards I used a square Nestabilitie Die to cut it out and then used the Marvellous Squares for the mount. The sentiment is a Just-Rite circle stamp and the snowflake die mount is a Whimsey one.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers I have used are from the Lili of the Valley "Christmas" paper set, both are with snowflake and tree designs in blue and white.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and then I hope you will want to take part in this "Wintertime" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
