Sweet Stampin' - snow people

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

Well I was planning on blogging a card yesterday, but to be honest I've had such a rotten couple of days with Dex - he's poorly (just a bad cold), but he's not sleeping well, and is in the worst, stroppiest mood ever... I'm finding him very challenging at the moment!  So although I had a card that I could have shown, I just couldn't face blogging at all.  Hubby's working a few hrs this morning, but when he gets back I'm handing over full child-pacifying duties and going upstairs to hide!

Anyway... today's card is for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', where our theme is 'snow people' - this could be snowmen/ women/ bears, people in the snow, etc.  We're sponsored by Bugaboo, who have a fab prize of 7 digi stamps, and also Di's Digi Downloads, who have 5 lovely digi stamps as a prize, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher prize... so lots of chances to win :o)

Items Used
Digi Stamp - Snowman Polka Scarf - Bugaboo Stamps
Colouring - promarkers & flexmarkers
Papers - MME Paris & Co - MCH
Sentiment stamp - LOTV
Memory Box Crystal Snowflake die - MCH

Crimbo Crackers - snowmen
Bunny Zoe's - winter
