Hi everyone

What a fabulous Challenge we have starting today at

Tone  is hosting this Challenge and has chosen a brilliant theme of Music ( - notes, instruments, dance, )  think wide

We are sponsored by one of my favourite shops  Noor Designs UK
Nothing is too much trouble for Tracy.  If you do not see what you are looking for on her site I am sure if you message her she will help if she can.  She is a mine of information too and so talented as can be seen on her Blog here at 

I opted to make a Christmas card using this lovely Magnolia Snowman image which I coloured with Copics.  I cut off three inches of the front vertically with fold at the left side, and went from there.  The die-cuts are layered with card which is covered with papers.  These are Spellbinders die-cuts which I have had for some years now.  I played around to get the layered effect with an aperture for the image.

Most of the items are available from 

Snowman image :  Magnolia and coloured with copics (I have had this stamp for ages and never tire of it )

Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste
Tim Holtz Distress inks for the edges
Beautiful papers by Lemoncraft. (Available from   The pack is called 'Christmas Greetings', and I absolutely love it. 

Some of the embellishments were a birthday gift, but again I feel they could well be available at 

And of course, items from stash.

It would be lovely if you had time to pop over and see the Design Team's beautiful inspiration and even better if you fancy joining in with the challenge. ( )

As always, thanks for looking,
