Welcome to the Last Challenge of 2013 at The Cheerful Stamp Pad

Only two more days of shopping, I hope you are ready!! I have one item I couldn’t find so will be out today finding it or a replacement and some groceries too. I always make “nuts and bolts” at Christmas and I love putting the Oriental mix in it, nice crunch and a little sip too along with the garlic sesame sticks…yum.
This is the first week of the Any Thing Goes challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad I hope you will find some time to enter the challenge. The sponsor for the challenge is Bugaboo Digis it’s a Canadian company and they have free digis every Friday. Now for my card I used a Freebie Friday image I got a couple of weeks ago, I had printed it and it was in my “scrap box” waiting to be coloured. The sketch I used is from Catch the Bug Challenge Blog it’s the last sketch of 2013, Stella says Sketch #148, there is lots of time to check it out.
I followed the sketch pretty close, I fussy cut (my crafting buddies know how I am not fond of cutting) and I used the left over white cardstock to make the snow hills. I added crystal effects to the mask and white opal liquid pearls on the hat. I added the strip of bling to it just because it was sitting in front of me.
Challenges I am entering this in are:
Catch the bug challenge Blog Stella says sketch #148 1/4/14
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge # 64 Non traditional Christmas colours Dec. 27, 2013
Thanks for visiting at this busy time of year, I hope you find time to join us in the ATG challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad there are two weeks to the challenge. Hope to see you there.
Merry Christmas
