ABC Christmas Challenge - F is for Frosty

When Lorraine chose this theme, F is for Frosty, with extra snow, over at the fabulously festive (even in March) ABC Christmas Challenge  for this fortnight's challenge I thought she had gone a bit mad (sorry Lols) but to be honest, with the cold weather we are still having I think she's got it spot on!!

But first, thanks to everyone single one of you who took part in the E for Elf challenge - it was a teensy bit of a tricky one but you all came up trumps and there were some fabulous entries.  Please do remember to pop over to the challenge to check the Top 3 and the winner.

And so, F is for Frosty, with an extra of snow - you can interpret this in so many ways, a lovely winter scene with cottages and snow dropping from the roof, a snowman (of course), perhaps Rudolph's nose shining through a snow storm, even a penguin perhaps - many, many ideas out there - no excuses this time round gang, let's be seeing loads of frost and snow!  And look who is sponsoring this challenge -

Here is my offering
I have used this cute little snowman stamp called "Funky Snowman" from Pink Gem Designs - it was the paper that took me along the purple and pink route with those adoreable snowman postage stamps.  Paper is from a PaperMania collection of a couple of years ago.  Sentiment stamp is Pink Gem also.  Snowflakes are Martha Stewart and are covered in Glamour Dust Crystal.  Snow around Funky's feet is white Fluffy Stuff.  Funky is coloured with ProMarkers.  The pink and purple glitter paper I've used for the mats is from WH Smith.

So come on gang, forget the daffodils - get thinking Frosty!  Hope to see you over at ABC Christmas Challenge - remember, you have two weeks for this and every ABC challenge - and don't forget to check out the Design Team cards, there is a stunning selection.

Hugs, Squirrel xx
