Hello Everyone...well, I'm a happy camper, I'm all lit up and ready for the big day..3 hours of pushing bulbs and a few mutterings and BINGO!!..on came my lights on my Christmas happy and sparkly..500 of them twinkling and shining...ahhh!!

But we are not here about lights, we are here for a new challenge over at .....

CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS....  and this time we have a theme of .....SNOWMEN .....

On my card this week I have used the gorgeous SNOWMAN AND FRIENDS image, and I just love this snowman.....

Awww, he is lovely.

Coloured with...well, nothing really....1 grey copic and then loads of glitter...and his hat was supposed to be black, but of course I put glitter glue on it and it turned green...but at least it matches the papers now...

The papers are MME 'O Christmas Tree'...and the doily from 'Kaisercraft'..

A close up of image with his little birdie friends...and his green sparkly

The cute little alphabet clothes pegs, spelling if you cant read...

And the side view...made the trees by cutting out some of the papers..

LOTV favoutite from last year...
