it's snowing

Hiya Dressy's

It's challenge time at All Dressed Up and as always the theme is 


I thought I'd do a little Christmas candle for a change.  I coloured the snowman up with my graphics programme then printed it out onto some tissue paper.  Cutting carefully just outside the lines and then heating with my heat gun underneath some baking paper.  Whilst the candle was still hot I added some frantage to the baking sheet and rolled the candle up again and gave it another quick blast. Job done!!
All that was left to do was add a doily to a spare CD, add a few little snowballs and the job was done.
Quick, simple and effective :)

I'm almost all carded out to be honest and have been scouring the net for something else to try my hand at :)  I've a feeling it's going to be napkin decoupage so watch this space for my first attempt at that one.

Anyway, we'd love it if you have time to play along with our challenge.  There are some freebies on the 
All Dressed Up challenge blog and I think there are maybe a couple over on the Facebook Group too or if you'd like to buy some of Wendy's gorgeous images then visit the All Dressed Up Etsy Store.

Enjoy what's left of your Sunday
