I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Good morning!  I am scheduling this post, so hopefully it works okay... as if flights work out, I should be sight seeing in Budapest right now.  

I would so love to have a white Christmas, but sadly since the weather here has been so warm lately I really don't think it's going to happen this year.   So, can you guess what the challenge theme this week at Tiddly Inks is?  Yep... it's White Christmas.

Head over to the Tiddly Inks blog and check out the amazing creations from my teamies!

For my card, I used Lilli Claire Warm Wishes.  I have been itching to colour her in for ages now!











































































I have coloured Lilli Claire with copics (see details below) and added Stardust Stickles to her muff, ear muffs and the fur on her coat and Silver Stickles to her snowflake earrings.  I have added Icicle Stickles to the ground for snow.  The papers are from Crate Paper and October Afternoon and the doily is from the supermarket.  The buttons are from Doodlebug Designs and the chipboard snowflakes are from Make it Crafty.

The sketch I have used is from I{heart}2stamp.




















I would like to enter this card into:
2 Sisters Challenge #69: Christmas
Crafty Calendar Challenge: Cold and Frosty
My Sheri Crafts #75: Let it Snow

Here are the copics I used:


























I have entered all 12 of the I{heart}2stamp monthly challenges this year and here are my posts:

December - this one.

Have a lovely day!
