SNOW much fun!!!

Good afternoon friends!! I have had a lazy day around here today, but wanted to jump on and share these adorable ornaments! I had a vision of these one night and jumped out of bed to sketch it out! I know, I know....but it's not like any of you have never done that before...LOL!!! I am so pleased with how these adorable snowman and snowgirl ornaments turned out! I am entering the snowgirl into a cricut circle ornament challenge! The challenge was what got my wheels turning and the snowman was the first one to be complete, but I couldn't just make a snowman....I had to make a snowgirl version for my daughter. I changed the hat and loved working with pinks and blue for hers! I used the cuttlebug polka dots embossing make it look "snowy" of course! The snowman was cut from Doodle Charms and cut at 5 1/2 inches using the blackout feature...cut twice! The presents were also cut from DC at 1 1/4 inches. The snowgirl hat and the snowflakes were cut using Winter Woodland cartridge. The hat was cut at 6 1/4 inches and the snowflake at 2 inches! I cut a circle out of the belly and adhered a photo to the back of the top layer, then used pop dots to adhere the two snowmen together and give it a little dimension! I punched a hole and added some white elastic cord to hang from the tree! The kids just absolutely love them and can't wait to decorate the tree this year!!
