ABC Christmas Challenge - F is for...

Our challenge for you this fortnight over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog, had been set by the lovely Lols...and she has chosen:

'F is for Frosty'

...with the optional extra of 'Snow'.

I've gone with 'Frosty the snowman'...but you could also interpret the theme as 'Frosty Colours'. I've used an image from the 'Holly-Jolly' set by Penny Black...colouring the snowman's hat, scarf and sledge to match the My Mind's Eye 'Colourful Christmas' paper. For the 'snow' element...I added some 'Polar White' Flowersoft to the image, and some die cut snowflakes (from the accessory sheet that came with the papers). The sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly.


I followed the sketch from the Winter Wonderland Challenge...or at least I thought I did...I print out the sketches so that I can craft away from my laptop...and the two grey strips came out the same colour as the yellow background...and I didn't realise until I came to write out this post and upload the sketch here! lol So, I hope you'll accept my apologies...I'll try to do better next time! lol

Don't forget to go and check out the cards by the rest of the ABC Christmas Challenge DT...and to see who the lucky winner of the last challenge's prize is!
