New Challenge at WW

It's our Wedding Anniversary today!! 
We have been together over 25 years 
but had a long engagement......10 years!!!!
Well you have to be sure!!

Onto our new Challenge at Winter Wonderland.

Kath is hosting this challenge and she has chosen the theme
'Snowmen'.

Please remember all entries must be Christmas cards only.

You might think, pretty obvious as the theme is snowmen!!
But there are some people that have birthdays
at Christmas. So we say 'Christmas cards only'.

I must admit, I have a bit of a love affair with Snowmen
and I am very fussy as to how they look!!
This one passed as he has a lovely big smile!

He was given to us from our lovely Sponsor
He is called 

The background I made using TH Distress Oxide Inks.
It was my first venture to use them and really enjoyed
trying them on different papers. 
I bought them from The Craft Barn and I think I will
be buying a few more colours.
It's free postage, so you can order any amount you want.

I used Copics to colour him with.


Our Sponsor for this challenge is
Stamping Studio.

The prize is amazing.....
1 image from each Artist!!!

Have a look at the site Here.



So get your Christmas stash out. Blow off the dust and 
dig out your snowmen stamps!!

It's very hot here in Sunny Suffolk as I write
up my blog. 
Ideal for a cooling down.....making Christmas cards!!Lol!!
You can then see all the glitter you have on the floor!!

Looking forward to seeing your cards and we will
leave a message on your blog, to say we have been!!

Thanks for dropping by
and as you know I love reading your messages.

Big hugs,
Carol

It's amazing how many different snowmen there are, this is a lovely one and I like how you did the background. I resisted the oxides but just bought them, haven't had time to play yet!
