Do You Wanna Build A Snowman

Good Morning! I thought I would show off a different type of craft today - New year, something new, right?  I wanted to show you this adorable little snowman that I made as a Christmas Gift for a co worker.  I actually made several, in different color combinations. This is just one of them. (Silly me forgot to take pics of the others. I am just now getting a chance to post the pic, now that the holidays are over and things have settled down.

This cute little guy is made entirely of different types of socks, with the exception of his face, which is made from buttons. I've also used a cluster of gold glittery balls and greenery, to embellish his hat.  I've named this little fella Herbie.  WHy? I have no idea - He just looks like a Herbie to me. :D

I decided to enter this cutie in some challenges. *DISCLAIMER* I did attempt to look over the challenge rules for each of these blogs.  I entered only in challenges that did NOT specify it had to be a paper craft or use a stamp or markers. I apologize, if I've entered in a challenge that only allows paper crafts. If that is the case, please let me know and I will be sure to mark that on my list of challenges. It is never my intention to enter challenges where the craft type is not accepted.

I am entering this handmade snowman in the following challenges:
