Crimbo Crackers Challenge 28 - Snowmen

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge! And no pink in sight this week either! The challenge theme for this fortnight is:

Snowmen (or Snowladies!)

Crimbo Crackers is sponsored by Ladybug Crafts Ink and a lucky entrant will win a £10 gift certificate to spend online!

I've been lucky enough to use a digi from Ladybug Crafts Ink and here it is - its called Let It Snow and I've coloured it with Promarkers and stickles.  I've used papers from Polkadoodles Here Comes Christmas cd and added some faux stitching around the edges.

The largest snowflake has been cut with a Marianne Creatables die and the smaller ones are actually a really posh parcel string from Marks and Spencers!  I've added half pearls to the centres.  I'll be waiting for the January sales to buy some more of the snowflake stuff plus some other bits that I have my eye on for crafting, so don't be going in the Blackburn store and buying all the stock!!

Good luck with the challenge!
