Christmas Crafting (with sketches) #82

Good morning all.
Gosh I hate blogging on my IPad!!
We're in West Wales at the moment. We had some difficulty on Monday trying to find our property but made it eventually! It's fabulous here, as is the weather - so peaceful and quiet.

It's time for 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 turn of the Snow Angels to inspire you this week and Janneke has designed the sketch. We are being sponsored by our very own Nicole.


Stamp is from Stampavie and has been coloured with promarkers and glittered with Glamour Dust. Dies from Spellbinders. Papers are layered digitally in Craft Artist and are from a Daisytrail kit called Festive Cookies. Pearls and sentiment are from my stash.

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:
CHNC Extra - anything goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin - snowmen
Always Something Creative - Christmas in July
The Stamp Spot - Christmas in July (C5)
Cut it Up - Christmas in July
