Its Snow Time!

A big hello to you all and welcome to my little blog! Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at Lexi's Creations and it is the last one for 2012.  The theme for this challenge is "Snow" and here is what I have done:

A snow globe!! You can get this cute little image at Fairy Dust Crafts.  I have coloured it with Copics and chalks. I added Liquid Pearls for the snow flakes and some Glamour Dust to the snow on the ground.  I cut around the image and then put it onto a mat of white pearl card which had been cut with a Grand Nestie, embossed and then sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle. The papers are Nitwits from the Great White North Too collection. The snowflake has been made from felt using a Spellbinders die and then I sprayed that with Spray and Sparkle too.  I have used my Memory Box snow border on glitter card and then my sentiment has been cut with a Lil' Inker die and sprayed with Spray and Sparkle too! I bought the Spray and Sparkle last year and forgot about it but we are having a bit of a revamp in my craft room and I have just re-discovered it so everything has been given the Spray and Sparkle treatment (look out Dave lol)!

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

and they will be giving the lucky winner a £10 gift certificate.  Please pop over to Lexi's Creations to see what the talented DT have designed for some more inspiration.

That's all from me for today, I am scheduling this because I am off early to the gym and then finishing my Christmas shopping off (hopefully).  See you all tomorrow, thanks for looking and take care xx
