A Gem of a Challenge - polka dots/ spots

Hello and happy Saturday to you!

Over at A Gem of a Challenge we have a fab new theme for the next fortnight - polka dots/ spots.  There are lots of spots on my card... unfortunately I seem to have hidden most of them under my layers... oops!




I think this sweet snow couple might be my favourite ever stamp from Pink Gem Designs... they get used every year, I just have to remember who I've sent them to before!  I'll be safe with this one though, because it's for an order.

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Stamp - Snow Love - Pink Gem Designs
Colouring - promarkers & flexmarkers
Papers - Krafty Christmas - LOTV
Tag - Christmas Sentiment Tags - LOTV
'Brother...' sentiment - computer generated using chocolate box font
Memory Box Corner Bow die - MCH
MeiFlower Coffee Mix pearls - MCH
Viva Decor Pearl Pens in Ice White & Light Green - MCH
Glamour Dust in Crystal

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
I Love Promarkers - Christmas is coming
Stampin' for the Weekend - anything goes
ABC Christmas - U for up to you

Well I'm hoping to have a huge catch up with all your blogs today, if the internet connection decides to play nicely.  We've got some sort of intermittent fault on the line, so there's an engineer coming out on Thursday to have a look.  Hopefully they'll be able to sort it out, as it's been going on for a couple of weeks now and it's getting a wee bit irritating!

Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
