James & The Snowman


A new challenge for Everybody Art this week its a colour challenge of Blue and Brown so I've sorted of cheated again, yes again by using a bit of Kraft card actually its Crumb Cake from Stampin Up. But its close enough for brown well in my eyes.
I used another sweet James the Bear image simply cos I love how he works with mice colours. It think this was a sketch from another challenge but I don't seemed to be able to make them in time to enter them but still takes the thinking out of how to layout a card.
The papers are LOTV and silly me used the Country Landscape and then promptly covered it up, My favourite snowflakes punches from Martha Stewart were used for round the circle mat and the large snowflake. A bit of twine which I used the tiny label punch from Stampin Up which I think has been retired now and some dodgy writing for the sentiment.


I remembered to take a jaunty angle. Do pop over and check out the team also I hope you can join us this week.

Very effective use of the snowflakes Debby.

I searched all over for that memory Box candle die and eventually found one - whose to blame ?
