A new challenge at Divas by Design.

Good morning blogger friends.

I hope you are all well and having a good crafty weekend.
I put some candy on my blog yesterday - a Christmas present for one of my blogger friends as an apology for my lack of visits lately.
Work seems to have been manic and have constantly been trying to play catch up with commissions and challenges.
We are on holiday at Centreparcs at the moment. We just wanted a week away with our two babies (the dogs) for long walks and relaxation. I have brought with me some images to colour and I intended to blog so much you were fed up of seeing me. Best laid plans and all that!!! I think the relaxation has got the better of me and the only thing I have done is Sudoku - something I love but have not done for sooooo long. Hopefully I will rectify the blogging and colouring from tomorrow.
Today sees the start of a challenge over at

 Divas by Design.

The theme for this challenge is

Let it Snow.

A full product list will be at the bottom of this page.
I have used an image from LOTV - Snow Queen.
The image has been coloured with Inktense Pencils.
The papers are from LOTV paper pads.
I have used a few new items on this card. The Noor Design snowflake border and snowflakes and the Spellbinders Poinsettia die.
The let it snow sentiment is from LOTV. These are so useful.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Crafty Sentiments - 2 or more papers
Deep Ocean Challenge - Shabby Chic
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Make it Sparkle
Ruby's Rainbow - Non Traditional Christmas
Bunny Zoes - Snow
We Do Doobadoo - Christmas
I hope you have a lovely week and as I say - will catch up with you all today.
Hugs Sharon. x
