As usual, the last two weeks have flown by, and it's time for a new Holly Jolly Christmas challenge. Don't forget we are already in September, and Christmas is getting closer and closer, three and a half months to go anymore! Thank you to everybody for linking up your gorgeous Snowflake and Sparkle inspired cards, we loved seeing them. Don't forget to hop over and see if you are one of our winners. This time we are challenging you with the theme "Die cuts". This gives so much scope, so let your imagination fly. All we ask for is that your crafting has to be Christmas (or winter) themed.
Our wonderful sponsors this time are Dr Digi, A Day for Daisies and Di's Digis. Hop over to Holly Jolly to see how the DT have used images from our sponsors to inspire you. Our sponsors are also giving away prizes to our randomly selected winners. You've got to be in it to win it!
I got to play with the super fun Dr Digi's Rescue Squad. I coloured the image with Copics and fussy cut it. I cut the snowy landscape using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies in hammered white card. The sky is actually some recycled glittery blue card that used to be the wallet that held the certificate for my Master's degree! I cut it with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies. I used a Fiskars punch to cut the snowflakes from silver mirri card. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up set Endless wishes, and the snowflake is from the Lawn Fawn set Critters in the Arctic. I mounted everything onto some Stampin' Up DSP and a white card base. I just love how that dark wintery sky looks agains the snowy white rolling hills.
