Bring out your Dies and punches for this weeks challenge at Fab'n'Funky

Morning all

Hope you're all having a good week.  I'm trying really hard to get ahead with my cards just now because I've got a really busy time at work coming up and I'm on the countdown for my happy hollies again! - only 3 more weeks before I'm off - I just can't wait

This week at Fab'n'Funky challenges the new challenge has been set by our very talented teamie 

Pat K

Pat has chosen the theme of 

Die cuts and Punches

I love this theme - there are just so many fab dies and punches around at the moment that we  all 
have loads of choice for this challenge.

We are lucky enough to have our regular 1st prize sponsor 

Stampart by Kathryne 

Who is offering a fabulous 5 digis from her shop at Whimsey stamps to our this weeks chosen winner

as well as 

Joanna Sheen 

who is giving our random winner a £10 voucher to spend in her shop

I decided to make a little gift bag that I've filled with shortbread biscuits for Christmas as I thought that this gorgeous Digi from Stampart by Kathryne was just perfect as a topper for this kind of project - somehow I don't think this will be kept until Christmas  those bisuits will be eaten very soon!!

This is the gorgeous "Frosty friends" I know I will be using this cute image to make several boxes, bags and cards this year, it really is so easy to colour and I have to admit to having a real softspot for snowmen.

What I did.....

Image - Frost friends from Stampart by Kathryne
Coloured with Copics and prismacolor pencils
Ribbon - berrisfords gingham
Snowflake - Spellbinders - build a snowflake die
Die cut Circles - spellbinders 
Glitter - Martha Stewart
