Baby's First Christmas Card

I am scheduling this post cos at the moment I am in sunny LA attending THE CHA !! :-)
to save me a little time I have combined 2 challenges ,,,

The Totally papercrafts Challenge , whose theme was chosen by Joey and is


and the Stamp Something Challenge which is


Both Challenges are sponsored By Simon Says Stamp so loads of goodies on offer :-)

I used this cute Snowman image by Gillian Roberts for Stampavie. I colored it with Copics and inked around the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. The papers are from Magnolia and I used some Whitewash Coredinations and a snowflake embossing folder. I added Star Dust Stickles and Diamond Dust for sparkle.

Thanks for looking ;-) Please leave me a comment so I know you popped in :-)
