Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Mid Month Inspiration

Morning all - we're half way through our first challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and myself and some of the rest of the DT are bringing you some mid month inspiration for the challenge.

Just a wee reminder - the theme this month is 

Cold and Frosty

and no, it's still not frosty or snowy here, cold yes but nothing else!

We're sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop who are giving the winner a £10 voucher to spend in store... now I don't know about you but I could certainly spend it ;)

And here's my card. I've used a couple of stamps for this. I used the Penny Black Snowy and Hedgie stamp which I masked and then used my Inkylicious Tree stamp. You can't actually see from the photo but I did use Glamour Dust on the trees and round about the snowman and hedgehog.  

After I'd finished the card I noticed what sentiment I had used.... Warm Winter Wishes.... for a cold and frosty challenge..... Never mind, I'm sure no one will notice and everything else about the card suggests cold and frosty!

HI Susan, what a lovely card you created. The scene you made with the trees is great and all the papercombinations - love brown and blue - are great. The snow, the glitter, the snowflake and the "snowballs" are a great finish.

Hi Susan, Your card is beautiful. Love the sparkly little scene and the fluffy hat your snowman is wearing. I only read the 'let it snow' part, which is very cold and frosty :)
