Kate's Christmas crafting without Chris!

This Wednesday I couldn't have my usual get together with Chris as I was playing Golf
at Rotherham Golf Club with my golfing friend Andy.  I had played golf with Andy last Friday at my home club - The Waterfront  , then at her home club - Phoenix on Monday and just to finish the week off in true golfing fashion, I played golf at my old Club - Sandhill with hubby on Friday. Think that I am all golfed out!  No more golf until Tuesday, when I play my weekly game with friend Jo.
Sorry for digressing!  Needless to say, I decided that I was going to make a Christmas card without Chris this week, she can do it later!  This is what I made.

I really love the Cookie Cutter punch, I bought the bundle with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps
( And I have since bought the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamps too!!)
there isn't a snowman stamp included, so I simply made up my own, 
using Stampin Write Marker pens to draw his nose, eyes, mouth and buttons.
I die cut the "Happy" using the Hello You thinlits with Red Glimmer Paper 
and I stamped the "Wishing you" and "Christmas" with the Holly Jolly Greetings stamps.
His scarf and hatband were made using stamps of striped paper from my bit box!!
Waste not, want not! I am really pleased with this little fella!
Hope that Chris likes it too.
