Snow Days

Happy New Year everyone, I am starting the new year with my first DT card for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.

Our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas card.

I have used an adorable image called Winter Penguin Trio from our sponsor - Bugaboo.  I coloured my image with ProMarkers and added lots of Darice glitter to the snowballs, the papers are from the Carta Bella Winter Fun collection along with the sentiment which I fussy cut from one of the papers.

I have added a bow made with seam binding from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots Challenge - Winter Wonderland
Love to Create Challenge 147 - Icy Winter Days
Christmas Card Challenge 4 - Anything Goes
Stamps & Fun = Creativity Challenge 230 - Christmas
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Christmas/Winter Holiday
Digi Sketch Challenge -  Sketch and/or Winter Snowflakes (T)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Pick a Fave (It’s A Jolly Holiday)
CHNC Challenge 209 - Anything Goes (as long as it's Christmas)
The Glory of Christmas Challenge 49 - Anything Goes (as long as it's Christmas)

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes Christmas challenge.

Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Creative New Year.
