Patches of Pink Design Team Post and link up party

Hi Everyone!

Well guess what time it is.....It's time for Patches of Pink Design Team Post and link up party.  This month the designers were asked to create something with a Christmas theme.
Today I have an ornament to share with you. I created this little snowman using my Gypsy and the Cricut cartridge Doodlecharms. I cut two snowmen at 5.5" and stamped the outside with the most adorable Peachy Keen Face stamp PK-485. Next I stitched the two together leaving the bottom open and stuffed him with some cotton. I glued on his hat and glued in the ornament string between the hat and snowman and then added a scarf. The scarf was actually cut from my son's flannel shirt that he grew out of :) I used some buttons and added some stickles to them.  Just a tip if you want to make one of these , stitch in the ornament string when stitching the two pieces together. I think it would look better, mine looks a tad bulky at bottom of the hat.  

Side view, so you can see how puffy he is:)
Please stop by and look at all of the fabulous design team projects and then link up your Christmas creation to share your project with us.

I saw your snowman on Patches of Pink. He is a cute one. I like you technique of using two of the same cut to give dimension. Nice to "Link Up" with you.

Oh my, how adorable is this?! I'm so happy to be back to Blogger so I can catch up with my talented friends. Shelly, this is beyond precious. Even the hat is amazing, with those perfect accents. I love the sparkly buttons on the snowman and love that you used a flannel shirt for his scarf! He is one happy snowy sweetheart, isn't he? Amazing job as always, my friend. The tree looks gorgeous, too! (And thank you for all of your support!)

Hugs and blessings!
