Well whilst basking in the summer heat I made an icy Christmas card using the wonderful PICKNIX 2: GINGERBREAD TWIST BUNDLEWow there is so much in this collection that I was spoilt for choice but I knew I wanted to make a diorama/shadow box/theatre card thingy (not its real name) so I used the versatile scene and fun snowlady.
I put my snowlady at an angle so she looked a bit like a Weeble…. you remember those… they wobble but they don’t fall down!!! J
