Very good evening to all. The weather is changing quite rapidly with the leaves falling off the trees and gathering in any corner of the garden. Love it when the wind forms a nice pile for me to collect and bag up. Now onto my card which has this gorgeous Snowman Digi image from a new challenge blog i found called Jelly Park. Just a gentle stroke with Promarkers, very minimal colouring here but i hope my embellishments make up for it. Hand cut shape from a template, papers from long ago from QVC cut down for this card, lots of punches and dies used here...MS Doily Lace, X Cut snowflake, Marianne Dies Creatables flower and leaf, the seam binding is from Crafty Ribbons ( a part of a previous challenge item from them), sentiment from the computer and Card candy from QVC for the middles.

Onto the 10 challenges I'm entering... first of all Crafty Ribbons have their very own challenge blog now and first one is 'festive cheer', Cute card Thursday 'pinch & punch, at least one punch', Crafty Creations 'dies & punches, use 3 or more', My Mum's craft Shop '1,2,3...1 image, 2 papers backing and the snowflakes punched out, 3 flowery embellishments', Cupcake Craft 'patchwork quilt', Jelly Park 'dies & punches', Winter Wonderland 'friends...this one will be going to my bestest school mate abroad', Stampin For the Weekend 'holidays...does christmas count? For Fun is 'christmas' and last but not least of all my 2nd entry for The Stamp-tember Simon says 'anything goes'. That's all for now, thankyou for taking the time to visit.
