Crafty Calendar GD card ,,,, Winter Wonderland

Good Morning all :-) I was THRILLED when Lisa asked me if I would be a GD for the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month :-) Thanks for asking me !! :-)

The theme for this month is,,,

WINTER WONDERLAND with the added option of SNOWFLAKES

The Sponsor this month is A Passion for Crafts and Ruth is offering 4 digi images to one lucky entrant :-) I was lucky enough to win 4 images from last months challenge so I will enjoy choosing !! Gorgeous images and so much choice !! :-) Thanks Ruth

There is also a DT call so if you are interested, make a card and join in !! Good Luck to all :-)

For my card I used my Santa Down the Chimney Hero Arts stamp which I just bought ,, I LOVE this !! so funny :-) I made a shaker card cos I wanted it to look like he was really going down a snow capped chimney :-) I coloured the image with a mix of Copics and Prismacolour pencils. the papers are from the new Basic Grey Jovial paper pad. The snow in the shaker is Diamond Dust , this is quite heavy so it shakes and falls beautifully :-) I used a Martha Stewart icicle border punch and the gift was cut out on my Cricut. The sentiment is also a Hero Arts stamp. The snowflake is made using a Spellbinders Snowflake Wonder die ,,, I used Star Dust Stickles and ultrafine crystal glitter everywhere :-)

Challenges :

ABC ,,,,, Glitter
Creative Inspiration ,,,,, Shaker Card
Wild Orchid ,,,, Classic Christmas
Critter ,,,,,,, Christmas
Charisma Cardz ,,,, With Love at Christmas
