Let it Snow for Crafty Calendar Challenge

Hello lovely peeps, hope you are well. Welcome to my new followers, I'm delighted to have you here :)

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar today and the theme is 'Let It Snow'. We have two fab sponsors this month:-

Di's Digi Stamps


 Fabrika Fantasy

  "We are a small creative team writing and illustrating fantasy adventure and children's books. We love to draw fun and amusing characters, and are happy to offer them to you as digital stamps. We hope you like these digital images and they help make your creations bright, interesting and memorable!"

For my inspiration card I have used 'Not a creature was stirring' from Di's Digis

 How cute is this?!

This was a lovely stamp to colour in. I used my Graph'It markers for the image but did an outline around everything with Ivory promarker.
Snow: 9500
Pine cone: 3210, 3245, 3250, 3270
Pine needles: 8245, 8280, 8290
Mice: 9402, 9403, 4120, 4145 & blender
Santa hat: 5210, 5220, 5245 and 9500, 9501, 9502

I've also added a bit of Glamour Dust to the snow.

For the card base I have dabbed white texture paste on a folded sheet of acetate with the handle of a paintbrush and just left it to dry.

The poinsettia is from an old Christmas card and I've attached some snowflakes (Rob Addams) and foliage (Marianne Creatables) die-cuts underneath it
