catching snowflakes

Morning girls
It's another dark dismal one here in Glasgow.  It's going to be a long winter me thinks!!
I hate getting up in the morning when it's still dark and could happily hibernate till spring lol

Anyway being as today is Friday, it's time for our new challenge on Totally Papercrafts
and we're sponsored this week by

and the lucky winner will get to choose 4 digi's

Our challenge this week gave us all a bit of a headache so fingers crossed you enjoy it and play along.


I just adore snowmen on Christmas cards so this cutie patootie is perfect for me.

I've kept it plain and simple, white card run through the cuttlebug.  Same with the sentiment and everything backed by silver mirri card that's been lurking in me stash forever.  I coloured as usual with copic markers, added some glittery white flock to his fur trims and a wide white ribbon. 
Can you spot the acetate?  Look closely now.  It's there, I promise.!  I cut the snowflakes (from acetate) with my cricut, glittered them up and added a clear dew drop.  woooohooooooo job done!
Do pop over to see the other girls creations, as I said we'd a bit of a headache with this one but they've all come up trumps and made some gorgeous cards.
Thanks for popping in, have a fab weekend
