Crimbo Crackers Challenge 12 - Families

It will teach me to leave things to the last minute! I had no power this morning and because I'd not written the Crimbo Crackers challenge post, nor this one, everything is a few hours behind!

There is a new Crimbo Crackers challenge this fortnight and the theme is


This can be humans or animals but as long as more than two people / animals are depicted and that it is Christmas or Festive related then it can be entered!

I have a new sponsor to Crimbo Crackers - Crafty Sentiment Designs who are offering 3 digis to the winner of this challenge!I got to play with one of their images - Snowman Couple - which I have coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from Funky Hand - Dreams Come True cd and I've added glitter glue around the edges plus a very sparkly Christmas tree decoration which I found lurking at the bottom of my Christmas box! The ribbon bow at the top looks a bit of an odd colour in the photo but it actually matches the colour of the paper in real life! I printed the sentiment on the pc.

Good luck with the challenge! For more details pop over to the challenge blog. Closing date is Sunday 8 April at 12noon GMT.
