Dear Friends

Good Morning, & a happy Sunday to you all!
It's with a sad heart & a tear in my eye that I tell you today is my last
 DT card for The Crafty Pad. 
The challenge blog & The Crafty Pad Designs shop will both be
 closing after this challenge is over but for now, lets celebrate the  new challenge
Here's my little creation

The image I have used is Snowmen from The Crafty Pad Designs.
I love this image but I've never actually used it up until now.
I thought it was just perfect for this challenge theme.
I went for a CAS style too as on this occasion I felt less is more!

I printed the image & sentiment directly on to a DL card base, 
then printed the image a second time & fussy cut out the Snowmen 
I coloured the images with my Promarkers then layered them using some 
Pinflair glue for dimension. I added a line of glitter along the snowline

The sentiment is one I've used forever & I think it's very true!

I have made many dear friends in blog land, especially
the ladies I have met at The Crafty Pad they have been  wonderful
teamies & we've all had great fun! This card is dedicated to them &
to all of you, my lovely blogging friends!

I took a side view to try to show you the dimension!

I hope you can join in the challenge this week!
We'd love to see all your Friendship/Keep in touch creations!
We also hope to keep in touch with all the friends we've met 
Without your entries, it just wouldn't have been so much fun!

I must also say a thank you to all the sponsors, especially those who
supported my in my Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraising Challenge!

The last person I want to thank is Debbie the lovely boss without whom
there would have been no Crafty Pad Designs & none of the fun we've all had!
Don't forget that there is a 25% off sale until the shop closes on 6th Jan 2012
but, Debbie's images will still be available after then from
Just search for The Crafty Pad in the designers section.

The sponsor for this weeks challenge is the lovely

to spend in her online shop
