We're Distressed at Cutie Pie

Good morning. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. It has turned so cold here but not as cold as it has for some - we've had no snow - although both John and Jack wished we had as they are both back to work and school today :o(

So it's the start of a new week and also the start of a new challenge over at 

and this fortnight we would like to see you 

Our sponsors this week are:
offering 1 lucky winner a whooping $25 online spend - wowzers wish I could enter myself lol!!!
who are offering another lucky winner 4 digi images of their choice - Ruth has some gorgeous images so you will be spoiled for choice!

So here's what I did:

I took my initial inspiration from the fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl this fortnight and picked this adorable Sugar Nellie image 'Warm Winter Wishes' - aren't they just so cute and snuggly?

Image coloured with PM's and FM's and lashings of Glamour Dust added to the fur trim of the hat.
Edges lightly inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink

I distressed all the edges of the scrummy DP's - Dovecraft  Back to Basics 'Vintage Christmas'
Snowflakes - Die cut using Spellbinders Create a Flake 3 and 4
Dew Drops from the Ribbon Girl
Sentiment - LOTV 

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the Cuties.
