Chistmas IS Coming!


& don't I know it I am sooo behind with everything (including this post).  The challenge at The Paper Shelter Is "Christmas is Coming" & I used my favourite snowman (I adore this lil fella & use him lots).  I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils & added some Stickles glitter glue, I kept it fairly simple (lack of time) finishing off with some ribbon, a die cut snowflake, button, twine & punched tag. (sorry the photo is rubbish but haven't had time to get a better one). Me & hubby are off work this week & hoping to get all the Christmas pressies sorted (well maybe not all lol) & so I have no time for crafting as I'm spending time with him & trying to catch up with other stuff we don't have time for when we're at work. So I've gotta be quick.

As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter, and as it their 2nd Birthday in soon we shall be holding a special event with both teams so keep your eyes open for that, it will be on the 3rd December. Anyway The Paper Shelter have a fabulous prize to give away and that is a voucher for $30.  So I hope you can join us.

The challenges:
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes 
Little Claire's - Christmas
Crafts & Me - Ribbon or Trim
The Crafty Pad - Add Some Glitter
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Polka Doodles - Any Die Will Do

I hope you're all having a wonderful week :)
