brrrr !! It's cold out there :-)

To make this card I followed Heather's fabulous sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge
I completely forgot that I was supposed to add beads :-( Never mind I will still link it and if I have time I will make another one that will qualify for the prize draw :-)








I made this card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge whose theme is the exact opposite of last week 'White on White ! :-) The DT cards are all gorgeous and I have seen a few fabulous entries too so I just had to join in ! :-)

I coloured the image with copics and tried to get a few textures on there ! ;-)

I am also entering it into the Cupcake Craft Challenge whose theme is Christmas,,,, I was chosen to be in their top 5 last week :-) Thanks so much, I am absolutely thrilled and have put the blinkie at the top of my blog :-)

The theme on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is also Christmas so I am entering this in there too :-)

I am also entering this in the Our Creative Corner Challenge whose theme is 'Triple Play' you have to have at least 3 different types of embellies,, well I have ribbon, brads and a die cut snowflake :-)

Now !! Would you like to own this stamp ! ,, well not this one cos it's mine ! but a brand new one ?? Heidi has very kindly offered to let me have a blog candy give away EVERY WEEK on my blog !!! How brill is that !!

I will be posting this stamp on a separate post at the top of my blog so go there to enter :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Luv
