The Library - The Snowman

At The Library, the book is The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. 

It's the perfect book for reluctant readers - it has no words! You might also know the film, with the song 'Walking in the Air'. 

By coincidence, while I was making cards for this challenge, I discovered that Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine had free The Snowman images available to download. I printed this one off, coloured it with Promarkers, cut it out and stuck it over a stamped night sky (Avery Elle) . 

I'd like to enter:

For my second card I used a very old and well-loved stamp by Funstamps. I coloured him with Zigs, cut him out and stuck him to some dry embossed pearlised card. 
I'd like to enter:

Two lovely cards! I thinks it was a good choice to accent your second snowman with purples: it's a non-traditional but perfectly appropriate Christmas colour. The layout is great too. Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenges this week.

I don’t know the book, but I know the song, and I especially love the version where the singer, now grown up, sings along with his younger self. It’s really beautiful. I’ve been making mostly snowman cards lately, maybe I’ll get to make one more.

Donna said...

These are both so charming and whimsical!

I LOVE both these snowmen, Marina! Books without words are such fun and so good for the imagination! Wouldn't it be fun to fly with a snowman? The second snowman is so joyful and fun that he can't help but make everybody happy! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!

Both snowman cards are adorable, Marina. I’m not familiar with the book, but based on your card with the beautiful starry night sky behind them, it looks like a fun read. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas Star challenge. x
