Snow in April

Good morning. I'm here with my DT card for Winter Wonderland where we have a lovely easy challenge of Here Come the Girls set this week by Squirrel. We are sponsored by Simon Says with a $15 voucher. I have used a gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I added glitter to the fur. I love blue and brown together and am loving these new Bo Bunny papers I bought at the NEC. I used Memory Box scroll and frostyville border dies. For the later I used paper from the pack rather than card and am really pleased with the effect.I distressed the edges and used DI Vintage Photo.
Challenges
The Sugar Bowl Great sketch
Craftyhazelnut At least 3 layers
Passion for Promarkers Cut it out (use die cuts)
Simon Says Anything Goes

I'm selling at a craft fair again tomorrow so need to get some stock finished off. Thank goodness it is an inside venue with the weather we are having lately.
Enjoy your weekend and watch out for some yummy candy coming soon.
