Merry Christmas...

Well after my post yesterday saying that it was actually turned out to be really hot and looks like it's going to be nice and sunny today. For my card today I have used my new Bo Bunny winter Joy papers...these are absolutely gorgeous in real life but haven't been able to get the matching ribbons yet...the image is from Sassy Cheryl's and I coloured the snowman with copics and added some glitter. I distressed the edges of the layers to give it a shabby look...well my interpretation of a shabby look. I didn't think I needed to add any embellishments as I think it looks ok as there is a few different papers. I have entered the following challenges.

Friday Sketchers - sketch

Cupcake Craft Challenge - digital

Sir Stampalot - distressed

Stampin' for the Weekend - shabby

Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in August

Craftalicious - purple and green

Hi Fi

Loving this one.

Your have done a great job with that sketch, confess I looked at it and thought no way. But might re-think after you proving how wrong I was.

Our weather was much the same yesterday and this monring then turned out lovely. Very heavy dew this monring as well, just reminding us Autumn is almost here.

Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
