It's Christmas in July!!!

 Good morning. Thanks to everyone that played along with Lisa's Summer theme at MAWTT last week - we had some gorgeous entries and I know it must have been difficult for Lisa to pick her Top3. 

This week we have gone to the other end of the spectrum from Summer to 
as picked by my lovely teamie Shell.
Our sponsor this week is 
 and 1 lucky winner will receive
 The DT had some images to play with and I chose this super cute Snowman.
I was very lucky to have won a My Minds Eye Merry & Bright Papercraft Kit from Craftwork Cards recently - thank you Julie - and I have used some of the Design Papers and a sentiment from the kit on my card.
Image coloured with PM's and then using a Quickie Glue pen I added Glamour Dust all over the snowman - ohhhhh he is soooooo sparkly!!!
This is an 8x8 card base and I used the large deckled ovals I got with my Grand Calibur to matt the image - I cut the top of the hat to sit outside the smaller matt first.
 Out came the trusty Cuttlebug snowflake - I love this snowflake and I die cut it using some Rainbow Shimmer cardstock. A couple of Sizzix swirls and an adhesive gem to finish the embellishments.

Challenges I would like to enter:

House that Stamps Built - Christmas in July
Little Red Wagon - Christmas in July
The Paper Variety - Christmas in July

I love your glammour dusted snowman Debs, I keep meaning to get some of that. I really like how you have his hat sticking out of the mat too - is that hard to do?
Sounds like you are like me - a little behind with the Christmas card making!

Hugs Laurie xx

Very sweet card. The snowman looks terrific all glittery, and what a great idea to punch your snowflake from rainbow paper. Thanks for sharing this with us at Tuesday Throwdown! :-)
