Winter Wonderland Mega August Challenge

This is the last challenge until 26th August at Winter Wonderland.

Our host for this Mega Challenge is our lovely Marlene.

Two themes for you to choose one or mix them both together.
First one is 
Show Us Your Gold/Silver
And/Or 
Use An Embossed Background.

I had hoped to do both but my die cutting machine broke on me, 
so was unable to emboss the background.

I have used a Digi from A Day For Daisies called Mr Snowman.

They are one of 3 Sponsors we have for this challenge.
Details below pictures.

I coloured him with my Inktense Pencils for a change.


I added snow with my 3D glue and topped it with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter.
The charm was from my stash.


Our very generous sponsors are, in no particular order:

Their prize is a£10 voucher to use in their shop

Their prize is also a £10 voucher to spend in their shop

Their prize is an £8 voucher to use in their shop

You can enter up to 3 cards only per person.
So good luck and get those cards in and don't forget
you have to be in it to win it!!

PS: My replacement machine arrived today. I ordered it on the 18th July, 
It was dispatched on the 21st July. 
It had to travel for 1 hour from the shop to my home.

They said it would be delivered between 22nd and 26th July.
It arrived today, after me putting in a complaint.
I had paid £5.75 for the delivery charge. (Company have refunded that)

I still don't understand why it should take so long to travel 1 hour!!!
I was getting concerned, as I have a wedding order to deliver on Tuesday
and I couldn't finish it without the machine.

If inspiration would be helpful, pop over to 
the challenge page and you will see all my Teamies 
wonderful works of art.

I am looking forward to seeing your amazing entries
and visiting your blogs.

Big hugs,
Carol xxxx

Super cute card Carol. 3 days from order to dispatch is disgraceful in this day and age- apart from delivery time.

Such a cute card Carol. Your colouring detail on the hat is fab, it gives the hat real dimension.
Don't talk to me about delivery charges. I have just got back from our local sorting office to collect an Amazon parcel and had to pay nearly £14 import duty. Amazon are definitely going to get a piece of my mind!
Enjoy your evening
