Snowman Patches

It's time for our mid month reminder at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas card.


I have used a fun snowman image from our regular sponsor - Bugaboo.   I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir Markers and used some Christmas papers from Trimcraft that have been in my stash for ages.


I added some glitter to his hat and 3D Crystal Lacquer to his bell. The sentiment is from my stash along with the ribbon and pearls.

Bugaboo Stamps are our sponsor this challenge


They are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart Challenge 55 - Always Anything Goes
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - 2 or more Designer Papers
Not Just Cards Challenge 17 - Always Anything Goes
Stamp and Create April Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Challenge 274 - 2 or more patterned papers
Sparkle N Sprinkle April Challenge - Anything Goes with Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking
Digi Sketch Challenge - Sketch and/or F is for Flowers (I have flipped the sketch horizontally - I hope that's OK)

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes Christmas challenge.

I'm here with my Chistmas at Sweet Stampin' hat on Pauline. Love this card and you've used two of my favourite things... snowmen and Bugaboo!
Pretty papers and I like how you did the sentiment in the two colours.
Thanks for joining us at Chistmas at Sweet Stampin' and I hope you'll join us again.
