Crafting for all Seasons #67 "Anything Christmas but a Card" Midway Reminder

Good morning and a very Merry Christmas to you all. I hope Santa has been good and everyone enjoys their day whatever you're up to.

Today I've got a midway reminder of our challenge at CFAS, the theme being "Anything Christmas but a Card". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. As this is a special one month long challenge we have three sponsors - Whoopsi DaisyRobyn's Fetish and Rick St Dennis who all gave the DT images to work with.

Another bag from me this time for my niece. Using Chester da snowman and Bella da snowlady from Robyn's Fetish which I've coloured with promarkers before fussy cutting and highlighting with pearlescent chalk and stickles. Paper is from Papermania, embossing folder from Cuttlebug, icicle, village and sign dies all from Marianne Design, rosette and snowflake dies from Memory box, border punch from Martha Stewart, gemstone, buttons (painted white) and cord from my stash.

 Close up of the rosette and sentiment which was computer generated.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
