Snow! But it's the middle of summer!

Here in Australia it is the middle of Summer .. and here in Victoria it is 42 degrees one day and 18 the next ... so snow may not be that far out of the question LOL!

Over at Crafting For All Seasons we have a new challenge up and running.  Challenge #18 is Snowmen or Snowflakes.

We are being sponsored by:-
Bugaboo stamps who are offering a sensational prize of  7 digital images !
Some Odd Girl  who are offering a prize of 3 digital images  
The Stamping Boutique  who are offering a prize of 3 digital images or 1 digital paper pack of winner's choice

Wow!  That is a whole lot of sensational prizes!  So head on over to the Crafting For All Season Blog and enter your project for a chance to win.

For my project I have used a gorgeous image from Bugaboo called Winter Birds Scarf.

 I coloured this little cute bird in the following copic markers:-
B24, B26 - Blue areas
R27, R29 & R59 for the Red areas
E11, E13, E50, E51 for the bird with a dash of YR68 for the beak.
I used some Crystal Ice Icestickles for the snow.

 For the background I have just used papers from my stash and embossed the lighter blue through the cuttlebug.  I also made some flowers using some dies.

My 2.5 year old daughter helped me 'make' this card today .... she kept pulling apart my drying flowers and she even stuck down my bird image (not where I wanted it I might add ... but it had to stay as I couldn't get it off .. he he he ...)

Thanks for stopping by .... don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and check out all the other Design Team creations and then enter your own .... so many wonderful prizes!
