Snow much fun

Well, the Royal Wedding Day has arrived at last and the sun is shining here. I just want to see the dress and will watch the highlights programme tonight. I played around with my blog last night as I wanted to have bigger pics of my cards and couldn't do it with my old template. I'm really pleased with the result but still need to do some sorting out, such as the heading and the background which doesn't come to the top of my blog for some reason.

This week at Winter Wonderland it's my turn to host the challenge and I have chosen the theme of Snow much fun. We have a new sponsor, Stampin with the Dragon who are offering 3 digis to the winner so I hope you'll play along with those images of anyone or an animal having fun in the snow.

I've used a Pollycraft image. She's made the bottom of the snowman and is having a rest before tackling the rest. Bet she has a cold bum, ha ha. I used glitter flocking on her clothes and added lots of glitter to the snow. I've used my beloved new MS cherish punch again along with my fave MS snowflake punch and pearls. The trees were die cut from glitter card using a Sizzix die which I haven't used for ages. The Christmas ribbon is from Papermania.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
ABC Christmas I is for Indigo, Ice and Inspiration
Sketch Saturday Fab sketch which I rotated.
Cute Card Thursday Use any sketch (see above)
Crafts 4 eternity Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts Glitter
Wags 'n' Whiskers Use Die or punch
Pollycraft Fun and games

Lastly I would like to say welcome to my two newest followers, Coops and Elly P.

Edited - I've sorted the header by making it bigger. Isn't Kate's dress beautiful and don't they make a lovely happy couple.
