The three cards I have chosen in order to enter the DT call are below, and are chosen because I believe they show good colour co-ordination and my style.

These challenges are
- Challenge 45 at Winter Wonderland, where the theme is frosty the snowman,
- ABC Challenge where the theme is D for Diecuts
- Crafty Creations Challenge, no. 32 with a theme of Embossing
- Cupcake Craft Challenges, no 56, which is a colour challenge, of red, white and blue
I have used a Penny Black image of a cute snowman, and it is coloured with Prisma pencils, with a very generous helping of Stickles for some bling. The image it is cut with a Nestabilities die, as is the red mount - not sure you can see that it is embossed (but I assure you that it is), as is the text label at the bottom. To make sure I really did have some stamp embossing there as well, the strip of blue card are the side has been silver embossed with holly swirls. I am not sure where the papers are from - just in my Christmas stash box, and I have added Stickles to this as well. You cannot have Christmas cards without bling. The irridescent snowflakes were left over from last year, and I have added snowflake charms to these, which came from the Hobby House.

I found this verse via a link on Jak's blog, Crafters Kitchen, called Verses 4 Cards, and if you found that if you are ever stuck for some thing special to put into a card this then would be a good place to go.
The images on the card represent the things he has loved and enjoyed during his lifetime, such as his dog, woodworking and gardening (I did not know what a shop bought vegetable or apple was until I left home!), and his regular games of whist with a drop of brown milk - his name for whisky. Throughout his life he has been sustained by his faith, which is often a rare place to be these days.
