Snow People - Sweet Stampin


 
Good Morning :)  I hope everyone has some fabby plans for the weekend!
 
We have a new challenge today over at Sweet Stampin where this week the theme is 'Snow People'.  We are sponsored by our monthly sponsor - the ever generous Joanna Sheen, and our weekly sponsors of Di's Digis and Bugaboo Stamps.  Brilliant eh? !! :)
 
I used this cute Ava & Deacon digi image and it was great fun to colour!  I try where possible to make my christmas cards flat, and also a  cheaper size for posting (lol) so I used a 7 x 5 inch scalloped card (for a change) and layered HOTP papers onto white bazzil card.  The dies are a mix of Marianne, Memory Box, Cheery Lynn and spellbinders, and the tags are LOTV. 
 
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
 
I ♥ Promarkers - Christmas Trees
My Mums Craft Shop - Winter Wonderland
Crafts & Me - Non Traditional Christmas Colours (I think this means no red & green?)
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and dont forget we have a mini DT call over on Sweet Stampin and Christmas at Sweet Stampin, so if you are interested in joining a fab, fun team pop over and take a look.
 
Have a smashing weekend

Love the dimension you created on those letters with your colouring & the little people dressed in the mauve from the stripes makes this a really fun card. These icy 'contemporary' colours really work with the cute style & I'd imagine a little big child into 'cute' would be delighted to receive this.

Hi Alison, I've just been having a wander back through your cards - and realised how long it is since I popped over to say hello! I'm being a really baad blogger at the mo - apologies!

And what lovely cards they are as well - you always know just which dies to use and it gives your cards a wonderful style!!

I loved the House Mouse card and this one is lovely - great image and colours.

I also saw you saying about The Hobbit film coming out soon - don't know how I missed that bit of news!! Hubby will be pleased - not! I, however, will be there first one through the door ;-)

Hope you have a good week,
Sarah
