Snowman Hugs ,,,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) Christmas is only 68 days away and as we need to get the cards in the post a couple of weeks in advance at least then there’s not much time left is there !! I hope you’ve all started your preparations ! I must say I have a box full now !YAY !! 

It is Carissa’s turn to host the challenge this week on the ABC Christmas Challenge and she has chosen ,,, 

U for Up to YOU !! 

that’s it ! basically anything you like as long as it’s Christmassy

We are sponsored by our lovely teamie, Lacey, the owner of Stamp and Create  and she is giving a fabulous $25 voucher to go shopping !

AND the lovely Melissa from Meljen Designs will give a choice of 4 digi images !! Woo Hoo !! :-)

I used this cute Wild Rose Studio image called Snowman Hugs,
 which is available to buy in Stamp and Create :-)

I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass DI andf added glossy accents to their noses. I then added Star Dust Stickles and dotted the snowflakes with a Viva Decor Ice White pearl pen. I have just bought this fab Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader and cut it out of blue card, layering it on silver stardream and added some saddle stitch ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. So simple and easy to do, expect to see more of these ,,,, :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous creations so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)
