The Roses - January Challenge.




Hello..........Last Sunday of the month means it's time for The Roses Challenge once more.  The very talented Kym got to pick the challenge this month and asked to see winter cards using blue. I decided on my first Christmas card for 2012~~~ Talk about starting early!



The image for my card is from Inkadinkaclings and is called Merry Christmas Snowman. Coloured with Copic markers and given some clear glitter for a little sparkle. The sentiment is from SU.  I've added snowflakes, some punched and one brad.  The DP is more of Kaisercraft's Blae & Ivy and I've also die cut a strip of icicles using a Die-namics die.

Want to see what the girls have made for Kym's challenge? All the links are under The Roses tab at the top of my page.

Thanks Kym....I'm one down with goodness knows how many to go.....Perhaps I should make one a week!!!!






Thanks for all the well wishes for Saturday's open house.......It was thankfully dry for us!  Thought I'd share one of the photos with you.  The good thing about all the rain is that the lawn has never looked better :)





Thanks for calling past this Sunday. Hope you have a relaxing day, see you soon.......
