Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you? The weather here by the sea is rather cold, in fact we have SNOW!!! We normally get off lighly a lot of the times when the north east gets snow due to us being next to the sea. However we have it the worst today as when hubster took Jake school (about 5 miles away) the roads were clear by the time he got to the school. It does of course make hubster happy ;0)

Anyhoo enough of my babble onto my post today which of course is for Crafts & Me Challenges & this week we have a super duper easy one for you...............
ANYTHING GOES with otional Christmas Ornament
So its 'Anything Goes' which we all love but you have the option to make a christmas ornament, remember tho its 'Optional'
As you can see I took the easy route lol...........actually I have made an ornament but then my mojo went & I  couldn't decide what image to use so I'm gonna use it for a different image, will show it tomorrow.

I added 'Snowtex' to the 'Tree Branch' & added a wooden snowflake on top which has been heat embossed. The 'Reindeer' has also had the snowtex treatment. I added a Whimsy sentiment & some pretty pink lace & dotty ribbon & added a 'Snowman' charm.

The poinsettia is cut from a Marianne die & I've heat embossed it with some Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing powder. I've only recently got this but OMG this stuff peeps is just gorgeous I really wish you could see how beautiful it is, I've gone & ordered the Shabby white so I can see what thats like. Sooooo pretty!!!!!

She was of course coloured with copics & I added dots to her with a white gel pen. I added glitter dust to the whites on her clothes, this pretty lady deserves sparkle.
She is called 'Wintergreen Wishes' by Hannah Lynn.

The gorgeous oh so pretty papers are 'Christmas Memories' by Mindy Baxter & they are a digi set available at her Etsy Store, these are just sooooooooo pretty!!! The die behind the image is of course from Joy Crafts I lurve these dies ;0)

Pop on over to see my uber talented teamies creations, we have a coupleladies  missing this week :0(

Wow its snowing again & its like 50 pence pieces coming down...........at this rate my wi-fi will need Gelly Wogs (wellies) ;0)

Thank you for stopping by & for your lovely comments on my last post it really does mean so much. I stayed up til after 2 this morning so I could do some catching up with you all, I got around to half so I will be round today my lovelies.
Tatty bye, take care & stay safe................oh & be good cus the jolly santie is watching ;0)
