It's All About Snow...

Well it is here in the UK we had our coldest night last night -15 they said (or was it -17? Whatever it was is was very cold lol).  This week's Di's Digi Challenge is "It's All About Snow" too which is fab & another excuse to get another Christmas card done :D  I used Di's cute "Snowman Notes"  image & coloured it with ProMarkers, the papers are from Zoe Pearn who is one of my fav designers (they are digi, of course).  I finished off with a die cut poinsettia, charm, chipboard, brad & stamped greeting.  For the snow I used Aleene's Glitter Snow (which I got recently when I won a Simon Says Stamp voucher) it gives a nice texture I think.  Oooh forgot to say I inked & glittered the edges of the papers (& the flower).  I hope you will join us & check out the other DT members who have really come up trumps with some wonderful creations :)  There is the chance to win a $10 voucher to spend at the Joanna Sheen online shop too! (don't forget you don't have to use Di's images but if you do there's a chance to win more of her gorgeous images).

The challenges:
Sparkle Creations - Christmas (own backgrounds, optional)
ABC Christmas - C is for Charming 
Crimbo Crackers - No People or Animals
The Stamp Man - Texture
Allsorts - Free & Easy
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Christmas Inspirations - Anything Goes
Pollycraft - Chill Out
Sweet & Sassy - Hat off to You

I hope you're having a great weekend :) I got a new phone Thursday so I've been playing with that (trying to suss it out lol) & we're going out for a nice walk in a bit (will def wrap up well). Tomorrow we're going to the movies to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel & meeting our youngest son for lunch :) Then back to his for tea & cake & hopefully some lessons on how to use my new phone lol ;)

LOL....Thank God for the kids to teach us the latest technology. The weather here is the coldest has been this winter. 5 degrees and less than 1" of snow this whole time. Hear we are in for a doozie Sunday night until noon Monday. Will be crazy driving with it being the first snow so I'm staying in and crafting.

Your card is so sweet and cute but all your cards are adorable. Sorry I haven't been around lately, can't even keep up with my own blog. Tell me you secret to daily blogging when you get a chance. Have a fab Sunday. "Hugs"
