More Loving Those Telescoping Snowmen!

After making my first telescoping snowman card, I decided I would make three others and give each one of my four offspring one of their very own little snowman friend for Christmas.  My goal is to design each with a different color scheme and patterned papers.  I have now completed three of them, so I thought I would also share the last two I just finished.  I haven't decided who will get each yet, but when I finished with number four, I will work on that dilemma.

I am refining just a few things as I go.  I went back and put a hat on the back side of each snowman's head so that when you turn him over when opened, he has a black hat too and not just a blank white thing!  I've also decided I like his rosy cheek rouge (colored with Copic Marker R30) better when colored around the heart shaping it like a heart rather than just a circle.  I tried this on the third version, which is the turquoise card below.  The light blue one's cheek rouge remains just a circle.  What do you think?  And now for the finished cards..........drum they are:
