Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Ok - hands up who wants snow this Christmas - everyone, right? :-)
According to the latest report, here in the north, we have a 35% chance of snow. If you're in the UK give santa a shake here, and see what your chances are :-))
So,  it's time for another challenge at the CES Challenge Blog.
Our lovely host this week is Kaylou 
and she has chosen the theme **Snowflakes**

This is the first time I've used Pickle with Tipple, isn't he just the cutest? I've kept the colouring really light and sprinkled him with  glamour dust.

Here's a close up of those snowflakes. 
Usually I glitter the snowflakes and keep the leaves plain, but this time I did it the other way round. The leaves and card candi are covered in glamour dust and the snowflakes were die cut from the DP.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your pretty snowflakes this week, and if you need some inspiration check out the challenge blog and the amazing work of my teamies.
The winner gets to spend £10 at Crafty Emma's and if you haven't snagged a bargain yet, get yourself over there whilst the sale is still on.

I love this gorgeous make Caroline. You really do put your papers and colours so well together.

How exciting it would be to have snow for Christmas. We did have it once in 1989. Unfortunately we will probably have 70 degree weather for Christmas Day. I know that sounds pouty, but Christmas is the one day you want snow, then it can go back to the 70's lol.

Your card is lovely. That DP is awesome and the little tabs set it off perfectly. Perfect idea to use soft shades of coloring too.

Hugs, Linda
