It's the end of the working week...but I feel a nurse will be on shift through the weekend, hubby feels the symptoms of a cold which he calls 'flu' and the stomach/vomitting bug is having a field day going through the whole family!!!  But we can't let that get us down so to cheer myself up I found a piece of strong card from some kind of packaging and turned it into a sort of stepper card. All the elements including the dotty paper (which I stamped some snowflakes in silver) and snowman are from the Season Of Sundaes Polka Doodle cd. Coloured with Promarkers I've kind of tried to put shading on one side of the trees to make it look distressed, turned some plain cream twine into a coloured one by entangling and twisting a blue twine. Spellbinders die cut heart and gem, ticket sentiment to finish.
 
 
So there are 10 challenges... Polka Doodles 'dies', Charisma 'xmas..no red, green, gold' as is Hooked on crafts, ABC Christmas 'X marks the spot', Cards for men 'merry xmas', Love to Create 'non traditional holiday colours', Bearly Mine 'silver & blue', Promarker 'distressing', I Love Promarkers 'anything goes' as is Simon Says. Many thanks for coming over and leaving your kind comments, have a pleasant weekend all!
