Walking Snowmen

Good Morning friends.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I had a lovely day yesterday.
I belong to Scunthorpe's Choral Society and we took part in the Rotary clubs Festival of Trees. Over 80 specially decorated trees and wreaths formed a community celebration of Lindsay Lodge Hospice. The Choral society sang our little hearts out for an hour which really got me in the Christmas spirit. For anyone who lives near Scunthorpe, we have a concert on the 16th December at Scunthorpes Baths Hall. We are also singing with the very talented Co-Operative Junior Choir and  the wonderful East Yorkshire Motor Services Brass Band. An extremely enjoyable evening. 

Today sees a new and final challenge for 2012 over at Dream Valley. The challenge has been sponsored by not one but four wonderful stores.  The challenge is open for a month to give us time to recharge our batteries ready for 2013 challenges.

I have used a digi image from Crafty Ribbons called "Walking Snowmen". I have added colour to the image with Pro Markers. 

The backing papers are from Pink Petticoat and I have the wonderful Jules over at Always with a heart to thank for the idea of over printing the paper with two designs. You must visit Jules blog - her cards are wonderful. 

The gorgeous die is Frostyville border by Memory box and is available from many on line stores. 

The sentiment is die cut from some backing paper also from the Crafty Ribbon store. I have added Diamond           
sparkles fore the snow effect. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges

replica watches said...

Inside the fake Audemars Piguet Adventure Sport DLC watch is one of the most nicely decorated Swiss-made ETA 2824-2 automatic movements. The 2824 fake IWC is a very popular automatic time/date movement used mostly in watches a bit less expensive fake Franck Muller than the Adventure Sport. So on the one hand, I do feel that at this price point, consumers might expect a slightly more fake Vacheron Constantin exclusive movement. That said, the 4Hz, 38-hour power reserve performance of the movement is acceptable, and fake rolex as I said, Norqain was able to decorate the 2824 movement inside very well. The brand itself refers to this replica rolex movement at its calibre NN09.
