Hello Everyone...

Thursday again..and time for my DT inspiration card showcasing another wonderful image from the

This time I played with such a happy Snowman...FLURRY THE SNOWMAN 

Such a neat image to colour which I did with copics this time...R27..YG03..Y02..added glitter to his lamp and hat trim.

There he is in all his glory with his rosy pink cheeks..

I went around the image and under his feet with chunky glitter ...

Snowflakes punched out with glittered board and some muslin poked in here and there...

Papers and lace trim from my stash and the sentiment from Digital delights too.

The DT have made some fabulous projects which you can see HERE  and then we are having a couple of weeks off and will be back all refreshed on Jan 8th.

Challenges to enter...

Crafty Hazelnuts challenge #206   [bright colours]

Crafty Hazelnuts extra   [Anything goes as long as it is Christmas]

Glitter n sparkle   [glittery and sparkly]

That's me done...thanks so much for stopping by..PC still holding up, just very slow.

I've been on a snail hunt as I had snail slime across my carpet the other morning...he must have been hiding in the Christmas tree bucket and comes out at night all the gifts came out and I searched every where...but the allusive little blighter was not to be found.

Went to the craft cupboard where I stand to build my cards..opened the door to get my muslin out to cut into squares and low and behold...there he was..with his kids!!!
FOUR snails on the inside of the cupboard door..YUK!!..need I say.. they have been evicted..

See you tomorrow..

What a cute and adorable snowman hunny, love his shy smile, and all the glitter really makes him stand out. Lovely job. Not had snails indoors, but I did try and pick up one of Vince's "furballs" from the foot of the stairs, only to discover that it was in fact a live slug. You could hear the squeal in four counties........ Hugs xx

Chris said...

Totally cute image and a lovely card Chrissy! Hope you don't find any more of your unwanted tenant's relatives lurking around!

Oh your snail story did make me giggle, i've known the little blitters, to manage to crawl under my back door, then have races in my kitchen !!, Luv Sam x

Pia S said...

Eek, don't want snails finding their home in our crafting stash, do we... Not a problem here though, we now have snow.
I thought you'd paper pieced the snowman's outfit, but read that you colored him. Nice!
Sweet card!
