There's an 'Aussie' Kinda Snowman too

It's snowing 'somewhere' just not here
but Maria is thinking of it and chose this photo 
 for this weeks Challenge at Just Us Girls
Hello and Welcome to my post.
Snowmen are scarce in my stamp stash
and the only snowman you would see near me is
 a 'sandman' near the beach
and this is exactly what I made here
to go with the traditional Snowy scene above.

The snow and sand man are from an old
Gina K stamp set 'Snow One Like You'
The wintery trees are from 
Tim's Great Outdoors and the palm tree
Inkadinkado Flamingo Fun.
The snowman is covered with Liquid Pearls,
hat gloves and scarf red glitter.
and lots of other glitter to the background.
(a little hard to see)
The sandman inked in Australian colours and
got caught up in the sea foam from the rough sea lol
(puffed up with Little Birdie's Textured Embossing Paste)
Added some embossing powder also for the sand.

Did you have a little chuckle when you saw my
unconventional snowman?
I did have fun creating him, after all we will be
sweltering in the Summer Heat and the beach 
really would be the place to be.
Pop over and see what Kristin and the Team created.
No doubt some adorable snowy creations.
Love to see yours in our Gallery.
Look forward to reading your thoughts on my
wintery/summery cards.
Thanks for dropping in.

How fun. When there is no snow you make a man out of sand.....haha!!! Super cute cards, I love them both. And we have plenty of snow here in Northern Michigan right now to make many SNOWmen.

Brilliant makes, Ina! I love the surf all around your Aussie snowman! What fun! Your traditional one is cute too. Your background is gorgeous.

Wonderful card designs and I love that one is a sandman. That is so fun!

Love your double vision of Christmas - the traditional snowy northern hemisphere one sparkles deliciously, and the sunny sandman looks so happy to be warm! Great cards.

A duo of delights that speak to the Northern/Southern Hemisphere Christmas seasons! Love these!

Maria said...

Oh I just love your takes on this winter and beach so cool. Great job.

Bobby said...

So clever of you to add a sandman to the mix, Ina. All the details are wonderful on both cards.

This is the first I've seen a "sandman" and I like it!! Cute cards, both of them!

I LOVE the two variations! Beautiful snowy scene with the snowman and that beach scene with the sandman is fabulous.
