I have a couple of Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you which I have made over the last couple of weeks.

First up is a cute little snowman shaker ornament inspired by Jennifer McGuire and also our recent trip to the snow. It uses the Winter Wishes stamp set.

Australia isn’t very well known for its skiing slopes, but we do have some and last weekend we took our kids so that they could have their first ever snow experience. We had SNOW much fun throwing snowballs, making a snowman and tobogganing (there was still plenty of snow left even though it is spring!)

Next up, I have another card to share using the new Cactus stamp set (which you can pre-order). I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to colour in the focal pot. I’m entering this card into the Virginia’s View Challenge #24.

  1. Snow lovely (lol, you started it)!
    Love the partially colored succulent card – gorgeous 🙂

  2. I built the bridge about using snow on our Christmas cards years ago, it used to bother me and now I don’t care, because I love it so much (although, not to live in, it’s the sun all the way for me lol). Your shaker snowman is superb and would make a great tree ornament! That cactus set looks real funky too!

  3. Love the snowman, and your cards are both pretty cool too…we are having a little snow here in Tasmania at the moment. Love your colouring on the succulent and pot, very stylish. Di xx

  4. Thanks so much for playing Virginia’s View “Focal Point” Challenge! FABULOUS!
