4 challenges in one!

At last the drought is over...... this is the first card I have made for over a week!! Its such a grotty day, so have decided to lift my spirits by shutting myself in my craft room to create! Here is what I have come up with - a 4 in 1 challenge. It meets the challenges set on My Time To Craft which is 'Seasons', uses the sketch set on Friday Sketchers, loved using this layout, will defo use it again, the Stamp Something challenge which is to use something that sparkles, shines, glimmers or glitters and finally the DCM challenge to create something that reminds you of winter or makes you feel cold, phew......
Disaster nearly struck when I stuck the stamped image directly onto the green paper, stood back to admire my work and then realised I had forgotten the gold mount :-O, I just about managed to prise the image off with minimal damage, thank goodness the mount was that bit larger!
I enjoyed making this card, my first Christmas card of the year, somehow it doesn't seem right making Xmas cards when the sun is shining, so I was OK today, as it felt more like the middle of winter, with tumble dryer on in the background, wind howling outside, only thing missing was the heating being on, but even I resisted the urge to press that switch!
The image and green bp are from the DoCrafts goody bag for July/August, which I treated myself to yesterday while at a demo.
Am off for dinner now, back later hopefully, with some more cards....
