Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

For the past few days I have been glued to my craft chair, madly trying to make my Christmas cards and get them addressed and sent out. Having managed about 80+, I also finished 70 wedding invitations and consequently have had little time for blogging. I still can't find my camera charger but I am getting a new camera for Christmas, so maybe Santa will let me use it a few days early!!!
This image, for the Secret Crafter's challenge of Snow, is by Dustin Pike, I just love his work. It is stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Copics. The sentiment is a fairly cheapy one from Dovecraft, but I really rather like it! Although I cut it out with my trimmer, I used a larger Nestie to emboss the edges by hand using an embossing tool. I think it makes it look a little more finished.
Let it Snow is the challenge from Simon says Stamp this week, so this is for that challenge too.
The paper is from Pink Petticoat and the embossing is Cuttlebug. The snowflake punches were part of some fabulous candy which I won from Sharon.
