Blue Christmas!

Hello there, and thanks for popping in today! I started doing this post last night, but got distracted by watching the "bake-off" and then the midwives on the telly!
Hope the week is going well for you. Had a nice dry day here in Kent, so although I was pleased to get three loads of washing out and dried, come the evening when I dragged the ironing board out I wasn't feeling quite so pleased with myself.
I have another card to share with you today from my Christmas card making sesh last weekend. I recently stumbled upon a file on my pc of some images that we were given by sponsors of one of the DT's that I used to be on and amongst them were images from LOTV, one was the puppy on the card I uploaded a few days ago and the other is on todays card - isn't it fab when you "find" something you'd forgotten you had!
So anyway, I believe this gorgeous image is called "Build a Snowman" and is coloured with the glorious promarkers. I have cut the image out with spellbinders lacy circle die to which I then added baby blue liquid pearls. I still get a little nervous using these, but I think the drops are fairly even and I'd read somewhere that if the drops form peaks you can flick the card from underneath to stop this, and I think they turned out ok. The paper is from Bo Bunny with sentiment printed on and edged with a promarker. The ribbon, button and candi are from the stash.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
i love promarkers - anything goes
holly jolly christmas challenge - non-traditional colours
bunny zoes - something blue
joanna sheen - ribbons
crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge - cut it out
Winter Wonderland - Frosty the snowman

That's about all from me for the moment.......have two daft dogs here waiting for their last trip to the back garden before bedtime, so i'll catch you all later xx
