Crafty Creations Challenge - Christmas in July

Hello again is there anybody there? I hope people are getting to see my new Blog :( Not to worry, I'm going to carry on anyway :D
Another challenge today and this time its a challenge from Crafty Creations and the subject is Christmas! Well it may as well be Christmas for the sun we've had!
Here's what the brief was...."Wow, this month has flown by! Can't believe next week is already August! Which means that Christmas isn't that far away. So the challenge this week is to help you start those piles of Christmas cards.
Christmas in July
Anything Christmas, cards, presents, ornaments, gift card holders. . ."

I've just finished a collection of drawings for Charmed Cards and Crafts digi downlads and among that set I have added some bonus winter images. I've been dying to have a go with this one and with the help of a fab pot of Polar White flower soft kindly given to me by Karen of Charmed Cards and Crafts (wuv woo) I managed to come up with this......
I used a Fancy Pants Happy Holidays 8 x 8 paper pad for this project, I just love these papers, theyre so rich.Fancy Pants Happy Holidays 8x8 Paper Pad
The Image I've used is from the 'Let it Shine' digital collection also from Charmed 
The great thing about being a card maker is that when you design images you have an end product in mind, I knew from the beginning that this little lovely would have snow added to her nose.
The snow here is Flower Soft Polar White

Please pop over to Crafty Creations Challenges and join in the fun. xxx
