Dream Valley get Stitching

Good Morning,

I've had a very pleasing end of last week and weekend.
Seems like I've not had good news to share for ages!
Restoration came out Thursday and issued a certificate to say the house is dry (at last)
So on Saturday flooring was laid in the dining room and hall, this had been prematurely booked which until Friday looked as if would have to be cancelled. So you can imagine how happy I am, what a great birthday pressie! Yes it's my Birthday today.

Enough of me.
has a new challenge starting today
Stitching - real or faux

I've made something a little different for this challenge
A wee little Snowman

I cut the body, hat, boots and nose out of grey board then covered them in card. The edges were then sanded and inked and faux stitching was added to the body with a black pen. Black pearls were used for the buttons and eyes and glossy accents were applied to the nose. Bakers twine was used for the scarf and around the hat then a holly establishment was stamped from the Chloe boot stamp to add to the hat (after being glittered. Holes were punched with my big bite and brown string was used to hang boots on. 
Hope you like!!!!!! I do, I love snowmen
