Hi all today the challenge at 
is to make a 
Christmas Card for Man or Boy
the sponsor is
Here is my GDT card
I decided to try for a monochromatic card, the image is actually a stamped one from Polka Doodles, I have coloured him with Copics and distressed the edges of the oval.  The papers are a mixture, I added a sentiment, self adhesive corners, snowflakes with gold gems as their centres, gold and silver ribbon and finally a huge snowflake that I found in my stash, I distressed it with TH Vintage Photo then sprayed the whole snowflake with Crafters Companion Iridescent glitter spray, I added a vintage style central sticker, copper tinsel like thread and gold gems.
I hope that you will join the challenge at
Tuesday Throwdown
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the DT, especially DAVI, at Tuesday Throwdown for inviting me to be their GDT for November, their support and friendship shown was exceptional, thank you girls so much, I really enjoyed myself.

Thank you for your visit, hugs to all.
