Christmas at Craft Challenge

Morning another nice one here in Manchester.
Today CRAFT CHALLENGE is having there monthly Christmas challenge and with the Summer Holidays and schools all finishing or finished in the Uk we are extending this for 2 weeks instead of the 1 so lots of time to join in.
We are sponsored by CRAFTY SENTIMENTS
So here is my card I have kept is CAS with no embellishments just a little glitter and fluffy stuff for the snow. The stamp is called Fun In The Snow and is available from their shop HERE although I believe it is on pre order.
 image coloured with promarkers
Few snowflakes stamped around and some ink to shade the edges
DP matt is  called Frozen
Glitter and fluffy stuff
Sentiment i think is digi Stamp Boutique but was in a pile already printed so not 100% on that.
Well this is one for my box and as it is fairly flat will go as a normal stamp i need to make a few more like this as postage can be expensive at Christmas dont you think. maybe if I write them and add a few stamps it might all help lol.
Well as i said this challenge lasts for 2 weeks so hope that you can come and play along with us.
Off to add to a few challenges and get a few jobs done. 
Bye for now.
