Snowmen with Sparkles Christmas!

Morning crafters, hope you're all well.....and happy September to you too!
It's fast approaching my favourite time of the year, the nights are definitely drawing
in now & there's quite a chill in the air this morning......happy days!
The kids go back to school/college this week & that's usually the time when
my Christmas planning begins.......after I've had a few days to off to recover from
the holidays, that is!!  I do have a few cards already done thanks to being on the Sparkles Christmas Challenges Dt......and it just so happens we have a new challenge starting today!
The theme this time, as chosen by our lovely Mary is THERE'S NO MAN LIKE A SNOWMAN
so wether it be snowmen, snowladies or snowkiddies we'd like to see them!
I love using snowmen on my makes, love all the frosty blues that go with them &
for this card I wanted to keep it fairly flat for posting so just 2 layers of decoupage, a
 sentiment and a sprinkle of glitter was all I added.
At Sparkles Christmas we love to see any & all makes just so long as they fit the
theme & as usual, we have a fabby sponsor - this month it's Crafty Ribbons
offering our lucky winner £10 (exc p&p) to spend in their online store!
Don't forget to pop on over to the main blog & see the gorgeous Dt makes!
Thanks for calling.......whatever you're up to have a lovely day!
quick & easy at ABC Christmas challenges
Christmas at Penny's Paper Crafty
anything goes at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long
anything goes at Completely Christmas
gingham or checks at Winter Wonderland
