The Paper Shelter has a DT Call & 1st Christmas card of 2012.

Over at The Paper Shelter its time for another DT call so I thought I'd give it a shot as I love digi's and colouring in!! lol

You can use any digi to take part in the call so here is my entry.

A few weeks ago I was the lucky winner of "Joeys Candy" part of which was $20 to spend at Sassy Cheryl's digi's and since then I love them!! This weekend I had a look at the bargain bin and can you believe this beautiful snowman "Fat Thankful Snowman" was in there at $1.
As always I have coloured in with Pro Markers and added way too much stickles to his cheeky face!! lol
The papers are Dove Craft "Let it Snow" papers which I have had for a couple of years which are just fab and pre glittered.  As you can see my Tim Holtz Snowflake border die has come out and addded some blue gems and stickles.
Had the sentiment stamp for ages and these beautiful snowflakes are Magnolia I did buy them last year but ashamed to say I have just opened them today also added gems to the centers and stickles.
The only stipulation was that you leave the image free of embellishments it was hard but I have succeeded!  Fingers crossed as there's so much talent out there.

Challenges I am entering are:

2 Sisters  -  Christmas in July
Saturdays Challenge -  Pastels
Crafty Catz -  Spots (Backing Paper)
Paper Take Weekly  -  Anything Goes + added stickles
Crafters Companion  -  Ho Ho Ho its Christmas
Lolly Pop Crafts  -  Christmas in July
Ladybug Crafts  -  Christmas in July

Well I'm so happy that I have started my Christmas Cards as I know a lot of you ladies have been doing them all year and I do normally start two weeks before or like last year the weekend before as I'm always on my last legs!!!! lol

I do believe that the Sun has just come out in Sheffield I just wonder for how long!

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxx
