Let it Snow!

Good morning bloggers! Well I should now be on the way to the airport for my annual girly holiday to Las Vegas - whoop, whoop!!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week i:


We want to see your creations with Snowflakes on - very seasonal with Christmas fast approaching!! Here is what I have made:

I have used the super cute Flurry the Snowman which is available here from Digital Delights.  Love that bird on his head! Don't forget all of Wendy's images are available either coloured or un-coloured whichever you prefer.  I have used Copics to colour mine. I have used Coredinations cardstock, October Afternoon paper from the Holiday Style pad and some glitter card.  Flurry has been cut and matted using Grand Nesties and I have coloured the background with some chalks. I have added a lot of Martha Stewart glitter to his clothes and the snow.  The sentiment is from the A Touch of Christmas Sentiments set available here such brilliant value as you get 8 sentiments! The border die is a Spellbinders and I have used the fall out for my snowflakes - waste not want not!! I have put the sentiment on a Marianne die cut to look like a sign. The gems, ribbon and snowman charm are all from my stash.  

Our sponsor this week is:

Scrapyland - you can visit them here.

Please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what the Design Team have done for some more inspiration. You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but your entry will count twice if you do use one!

Well I will be on my way to

for our annual trip. We are staying at the Aria which is just a couple of years old, we like to try somewhere new each time, here's a picture:

Ooooh I'm so excited!! Thanks for looking and take care xx

Fabulous card but Vegas...Vegas steals the show..Have lots of fun and hope you get a chance to go to that fab scrapbook store around Russell and Pecos...if I remember the streets correctly. There is a Michaels close by so it is worth the trip. I took a bus down the strip towards the airport and then transferred to catch the bus up to the store.

Lucky you in Las Vegas Susan. Just a tad envious!

I love your card though and at least I can craft instead of enjoying myself in LV! LOL. The colours are great and that image is just so cute.

When are you going and when are you coming home and I hope you are having tons and tons of fun!! Yes a few cocktails never hurt anyone - what am I talking about -- if I were there with you I am sure I would be having more than a few. Okay, your snowman is cute as can be - and the design even better. I have a big smile on my face seeing you have a good time in Las Vegas. You are going to have to tell us all about it!
