Christmas Crafting (with sketches) #98

Good morning all.

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 designed the sketch. We are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and we have a twist again this week of "Use a Charm".

I've used Carl the Snowman, coloured with promarkers and highlighted with glamour dust and die cut with a Spellbinders oval die. Papers are from Bearly Mine's Christmas Wishes pack. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, charm. twine and gems 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
Bearly Mine - anything goes
Oldie but a Goodie - add a charm (my charm is my oldie...I bought them for last year's cards!)
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes
Card Mania - anything goes
Crafty Bloggers - Christmas
Deep Ocean challenge - winter
