Here Comes Christmas

Good Morning everyone and here we are at Friday again. These weeks are certainly whizzing by now aren't they?  At this rate it will soon be Christmas.  I was at a hotel in Leyland yesterday and they had a Christmas tree up promoting their Christmas parties - how weird did that feel in July!!  Anyway this ties in very nicely because today sees the start of a new challenge over at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days and the challenge is, you guessed it, Christmas!  So here is my card for the challenge:

For my card I have used Jenni's Building a Snowman which is available to buy here at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days.  She has been coloured with Copics and a touch of Prismas with some Stickles to her scarf.  I have layered her behind a Memory Box Die to which I have added loads of Stickles.  I have then used my XXL Go Create Dies to make three layers with glitter, mirri and pearl card.  The sentiment is computer generated and I have cut it out with Sissix die which I have had for yonks.  The bell, ribbon and pearl string are all from my stash.  If you pop over to Cardmadfairy's Digi Days you can see what the rest of the talented DT have made for some more inspiration. To enter you must use a digi image, you don't have to use one of Jenni's images but if you do you can enter as many times as you like.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Moving Along With the Times - Pink, Pearly and Pretty
Paper Play - Christmas in July
Willow Sketchie - Christmas in July
Totally Stampalicious - Christmas in July
Quirky Crafts - Christmas in July
Robyn's Fetish - Christmas in July
Two Sisters Challenge - Christmas in July

Well that's it for me for today, thank you so much for looking and I will see you tomorrow - take care xx
