Christmas Crafting (with sketches) #62

Good morning all. What a gorgeous day we had yesterday, woke to heavy frost and brilliant sunshine so ended up taking the dog for a two hour walk along the coast.
Got to take the car over to Galashiels this morning for it's 3 month check. May just have to detour by Kelso garden centre on the way home and visit the craft department!

It's time another challenge over at CCWS and we hope you're playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. It's the Snow Angels turn this week and it was Christina's turn to design the sketch this time. We are being sponsored by Elisabeth Bell who supplied images for the DT to use. We also have a twist this week of "use glitter or bling".

Image is called "Frosty the Snowman" and I've coloured with promarkers and added glamour dust before die cutting. Dies are from Spellbinders. Papers are some odd pages from a Papermania book bought years ago. Ribbons, webbing, pearls, gems and sentiment are from my stash. Snowflakes are punch waste.


You will have to pop over to the challenge blog to see the sketch for yourself, remember to check out
 the inspiration of the other DT members whilst you're there. 

Challenges entered:
Dream Valley - ribbon and bling
Gingerloft - ribbons and bows
CHNC Extra - anything goes
Glitter and Sparkle - bling it on
Joanna Sheen - layer it up
One Stitch at a Time - use a digi
Robyn's Fetish - ribbon or twine
Digi Haven - snow/snowflakes
Winter Wonderland - snowflakes falling
CCEE Stampers - C is for (Christmas, carrot, cold)
ABC Christmas - D for designer papers
