A Few of My Favorite Things

Good morning friends.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend?  It's Monday so that means we have a new challenge for you over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  It is our lovely Lou's turn to pick our theme and she wants us to show some of our favorite things.  So easy, right?


Since one of my favorite things is snowmen I decided to use this adorable Swings and Slides Merry Christmas - Snow Buds image.  I colored this cute couple with copics and colored pencils.  I added some of my very favorite Glamour Dust for some sparkle.  I'm also very fond of snowflakes, pearls, and ribbon so those got tossed onto my card too :)  These are just a few of my favorite things.  If I added all of my favorites I would have to make my card about 12" x 12" just to hold them all lol!


We are being sponsored by the fabulous Crafty Emma's Store and she is giving away a voucher to the challenge winner.  Be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to see all the fabulous work by our wonderful DT.  I hope you create something with your favorite things and join in our challenge this week.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week.

Hugs, Anita
