Catching snowflakes


New challenge day at A Gem of a Challenge and we want you to get krafty. I love kraft so this was a really easy challenge for me. As always you can win some Pink Gem digis and as there are always new ones coming out then you will be spoilt for choice. I used Pink Gem Chilly with snowflake team with Dovecraft North Pole papers. I cut the snowflake off the image and added  a wooden snowflake coloured with a white Wink of Stella pen. I coloured the wooden snowman the same way and used a Sakura red pen on his hat and scarf. I added a chipboard greeting I won from Scrap and Craft and red pearls.

Challenges
CCAYR anything goes 
Dies R Us oudoor fun 
Noor! Design UK anything goes, option chipboard (sentiment) 
Sparkles Christmas snowflakes 
Inky Chicks Christmas in Summer 
Di's Digis Christmas in July

We have had a couple of days in Yorkshire, visiting Whitby and Scarborough and this morning we are making an early start to travel to Doncaster where I am meeting up with Lynsey at Crafting Live. Looking forward to a day's crafty shopping whilst hubby visits an aircraft museum. Travelling home later this afternoon.
