OSAAT challenge - Celebration

Happy Sunday

The challenge at OSAAT this week is celebration and I have chosen to make a card to celebrate Christmas. I really do need to get more of my Christmas cards made, I have been adding some slowly to the collection but I usually send around 160 cards altogether so I have a long way to go if I am going to make them all.

The winner this week gets 5 digis from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Boutique.

I found this sketch on a challenge blog I hadn't seen before - Posh Designs Scrapbook Store and I have to say it really intrigued me. 

I think it is very unusual and thought it would be a real challenge with the lovely snowman digi I have used. Well those of you who know me, know that I am always up for a challenge.

So here is the result.

The digi is called Sammie Snowman and created by Lexi at Lexi's Creations and can be found at Stitchy's store here. I printed it out twice, cut one as a mask and then stamped a background to it, then used nesties labels 2. The papers are from The Shabby Princess and I backed everything on a piece of recycled cardboard from a parcel I had received. The ticket is from Miss Cutiepie.

Enjoy the rest of the day and the week ahead.
