Dutch Dare Challenge # 59

Goodness me...where on earth has this week gone? I really can't believe its Friday already! I seem to have been running behind with everything this week and it hasn't helped having to get Sophie to training sessions 3 nights this week...poor little thing was so tired last night after her first day back at school and training...she was pleased to see her bed bless her lol!

I did manage to fit in a quick card last night which is for the current Dutch Dare challenge, they have a really nice sketch and this card didn't really take too long to put together! I've used one of my fav Christmas images which is from the Digi Stamp Boutique and the image is called Jack and Snowman this lil' pair are so playful and this is a real fun image for Crimbo! I've coloured with Promarkers and added my fav sparkle in the form of glamour dust to all the frosty bits lol!

Design papers are SU but alas I cannot remember the name of the set...I'm useless with papers unless they are digi downloads lol! The sentiment is Penny Black and the beautiful snowflake was created using a Martha Stewart punch that I bought with a gift voucher I was given recently! I've also covered the snowflake in glitter and added a green card candy iced gem to the centre! Crikey, quick card to make...long post to write lol! Hope everyone has a good day, thanks for visiting me today :)
