Snowflakes and Snowmen

I seem to have half made cards everywhere - I must get organised today!  I did manage to finish this one yesterday; I think I may have enough Christmas cards made by the time Christmas arrives this year.  On the TV this morning they kept reminding us, "only 100 days 'til Christmas".  Oh No!!!

I have made this card using the sketch over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, using a stamp that I had from their shop.  It has been coloured with pro markers and lots of glitter.  The papers are both DCWV and the snowflake is a Sizzlits die using a piece of glittered card from one of last years recycled cards that someone sent me (a bought card, I'd never disect a hand made card!!!).  The sentiment is part of a Christmas postage rubber stamp that I've only used part of.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - I used their sketch
Die Cuts Dreams Chrisrmas Club - Children's Christmas Card
Ann's Creative Nook - Scallops or Squares
Gingerloft challenge - Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas colours
Bah-humbug - Favourite medium (stamping and pro markers)

Right, off to get a bit more organised now!
