Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
I can't believe a whole week has gone by since my last blog post.  I have been busy with work and preparations for christmas and just not had the time to blog.  Hopefully, most of my christmas crafty stuff is done now so will get more time for blogging.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Use your favourite colour
We have three sponsors for this challenge:

Here is my inspiration project using a super image from StampArt Design called Flakey Friends.  The image can be found here.

My favourite colour is purple.  I coloured the image with promarkers and gave snowman a lovely purple hat and scarf.  I added some stardust stickles to the image for added sparkle together with some liquid pearls.  The backing paper was in my christmas stash box and is a lovely shade of purple.  I decided to keep the embellishments simple and just added a lace bow and sentiment.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the lovely creations from my talented teamies.
