SWALK sledging

Apparently it is National Card Making day if we need an excuse to get crafting. That said, I couldn't let the day pass me by without a blog post to celebrate.

Time to get a little bit Christmassy today, with a gorgeous SWALK stamp and some lovely NitWits papers.

I just love the excited little faces on these two characters - it almost makes me wish or snow as there is a lovely place where you can sledge just like this, only a few minutes walk from our house!
As you can see, I have coloured these two in with my promarkers , in nice bright shades of green and blue, and have used my plain circle nesties and a beautiful Memory Bpx snowflake die for my matting and embellishment.

All this is finished off with a sprinkling of glitter, particularly around the edge of my green matting, which I hope gives a bit of a frosty effect.

Of course there are always a few lovely challenges to enter, and here they are:

Thanks for stopping by today and a happy weekend to you all.
