Time for another challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and this fortnight our challenge is kraft plus one other colour. I love kraft as you may have noticed and it goes so well with red for Christmas. I have used one of the lovely new snowman images, Chilly with snowflake. Yes another snowman! Somebody asked on my blog recently how many snowman images I have. Well I couldn't possibly say, but it is a lot.

Image - Pink Gem Chilly with Snowflake
Medium - Copics
Papers - Dovecraft Krafty Christmas
Dies - Tim Holtz on the edge snowflakes, Doohickey fence
Sentiment - LOTV
Other - pearl pen, Stickles
