Christmas progressive challenge - Snowman

I decided to play along with the Christmas progressive challenge.  I had seen the wonderful cards that my on-line friends do with that challenge and the idea of being ahead of the Christmas game was super tempting.

So I purchased the image for this month (since I had not participated before I needed to pay this time and the next time they will be free) and I have to say that they are not expensive at all!

This time the images come from Anji Antics, there's a wonderful moose and a snowman.  I decided to go with the snowman.

I chose to do a color combination that's not the usual Christmas look (brown and blue- I really love how it turned out).  I was inspired from the sentiment that comes from Create with TLC.  I used  my MS snowflake punch and put some bling on it.  I used my scallop and classic circle all from Spellbinder.  The paper is from Little yellow bicycle.  I used my CM corner punch on the corners.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  I added some liquid appliqué to the edge of his hat and mitts I also put warm highlights glitter ritz to it to give a bit of shimmer.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Abc christmas challenge - G is for guy or girl (I think my card is more masculine with the brown cardstock)
  2. Lady annes challenges-christmas-progressive-challenge-3 -  image challenge
  3. Christmas at sweet stampin challenge blog - no red or green ( used brown and blue)
So that's it for me!  I thank you for the warm thoughts and prayers for my family for the past days while we were going through the funeral and burial of my step-grandmother.  My stepmom is really having a hard time right now to deal with the death of her mom... 

As for my cold... seems to be getting worse :(  I really really feel like crap my cold is actually winning at this time.
