A Card for 4 Challenges

Evening Ladies, I have had a horrible day, (which kind of goes with the weather)  my washing machine has broken down, again, and the water is all over my kitchen floor again, it has been steaming all afternoon and all my cupboards are filled with water, ruining almost every bit of food I have......

I decided to cheer myself up, until Brian came home, by going down to my shed, I managed to put a card together using Dianne's Sketch at Crafty Catz, challenge WK8,  I used one of Linnie's free xmas downloads and the challenge at Cute Daisy May, is Touchy, Touchy, I used glitter, glitter card,  flower soft, and ribbon for texture, thanks Linnie for these amazing downloads, I used the Passion for Promarkers colour combo of Burnt Umber & Marsh Green, thought this made a wee change from doing snowmen, in blues, if you know what I mean...I also used the Recipe for CH2 at Magical Crafts Fortnightly challenge, their recipe was to use a Santa or Snowman, or both, also Sparkle, Ribbon and Christmas Flower.  Hope you like it girls.

Could I also thank you ALL for your good wishes regarding my new DT post at ECP, I wanted to let you know that the 1st challenge takes place on 4th December, and at the moment we have a lot of goodies to give away, to a follower, I would appreciate it if you could pop over and maybe add the Blinkie to your side bar and help spread the word....many thanks and lots of love Avril xxxxxx

Avril, so sorry the troubles with the washer and water everywhere - that would be awful! Washing clothes is already awful...ugh, I forgot I have to go fold and iron! :( Avril, thank you so much for the lovely comments you left on my blog. You are so supportive and I do appreciate it! Congratulations on your new DT status! I'll certainly pop over and check it out. BTW, the elf sent you a post last week and expect you should receive it soon. I do hope you enjoy the sunshine. :D

Hi Avril Ann,
This is a great card - so bright and cheery. The snowman is gorgeous.
Hope your day improves and you get the kitchen sorted out. The weather isn't helping. It's so dark up here at the minute I have the lights on.
