A new challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Hi there this year is certainly whizzing by, can you believe its June already?? It'll soon be Christmas at this rate so why not think about getting ahead with your Christmas cards and join us for our second challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}? This time around we have a wonderful sketch by the lovely Marion which was a real pleasure to work with, pop over to the challenge blog and check it out and the beautiful samples by the rest of the DT too.

There's  a wonderful prize from Judikins, our lucky winner will recieve a selection of gorgeous stamps! Hows that for a wonderful prize? I must admit I don't have many Judikins stamps but I couldn't manage without their eclipse masking tape and prisma glitter which is the most sparkly glitter I've ever seen

Anyway back to my card, and before i start apologies for the poor quality picture. i love pale blue and red for Christmas cards, its one of my favourite colour combinations so i've used papers from a cd that was free with a craft magazine ages ago and matted them on red card. The sentiment is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, stamped on a creative acrylic tag with red stazon. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the snow flakes are die cuts liberally coated with Judikins prisma glitter. The main image is 'Bundled up Cooper' from Paper Pretties, i stamped him on watercolour paper and coloured him  with distress inks and added a little more prisma glitter to the snowflakes.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bah Humbug: surprise! (Choose your own theme, mine is pale blue and red OR something that contains a I'm sure its a surprise to the ladies of Humbug Hall that I've entered  as i've been awol for the last few weeks lol)
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes

Well I'm still rather upside down after our recent plumbing problems (i always giggle when i say that lol) and I haven't had a good crafting fix for a while but hopefully by the time this posts I should have a new bathroom floor down so that will be another job done. 

Its been beautiful weather here in my little corner of the UK,  but don't be fooled ...
it won't be long til Christmas  :-)
