Winter Snuggles

I know we've had a dry spell and we need the rain, but after the 3rd time of getting wet in a week, it's now starting to wear a little thin !!, today we decided we would clean out our conservatory and guess what we've had a couple of downpours and now OH says we would be silly to put stuff outside incase it rains again !!! - hence why i'm now uploading a card, oh well there is always a silver lining somewhere !!

When i saw the Challenge on ABC Christmas  - 'L is for Love and Green, Silver and Red', i knew the stamp i wanted to use - this is an image i was kindly sent and have never got round to using it - i also decided to give my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' a dusting off, as i usually use my Spellbinders 'Snowflakes' instead as they are smaller !!

Todays Challenges and Card :

ABC Christmas Challenge  - where 'L is for Love', with the colour combination of 'Green, Silver and Red'

Totally Papercrafts - where Challenge No: 71 is 'Die Cuts and Punches'

Christmas Challenges (With Sketches)  - where they are up to Challenge / Sketch No: 2

Papershelter - where Challenge No: 18 is 'Punches & Dies'

Use It Tuesday - where Challenge No: 9 is 'Dies, Punches, Cut - Outs, Oh My !' - I've used my old Cuttlebug - Ice Crystal.

Penny Black At Allsorts - where the June Challenge is 'Your My Favourite' - anything to do with Christmas gets my vote, especially the hedgies with snow.
