Snowmen...or people!

Hello there!

Happy Wednesday - its hump day! Woo hoo! I hope you are having a good week and have been able to enjoy some sunshine.

Soooo....its time for a new Christmas challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin and this one made me chuckle a little bit. This month we'd love to see snowmen/people on your Christmas creations! It seems funny that as soon as there is some decent sunshine outside we are asking you to make cards featuring some snowmen! Hee, hee!

Anyway, here is my card.....

First off....I love this cute backing paper...all those cute little snowmen! They are fab! I especially love the one peeking over the top of the sentiment! Hee, hee! My image has been coloured with my Promarkers and I have added a tiny bit of sparkle with my Stickles - now you all know how much a love a bit of sparkle!
Pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see how the fab DT have used snowmen/people on their cards this month. While you're there you can also find out about our fab prize this month from our sponsor.....

I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - Favourite things - glitter!
 Crafty Sentiments - Christmas in July
Fab n Funky - Christmas in July
Pop by these fab blogs if you get the chance and see what the DT have created!

Last weekend I spent the weekend in London with my best friend Becca - we had a fab time! We saw Michael Buble on the Friday night and Top Hat the musical on Saturday night. While we were there we also made it our mission to try out a couple of cocktails! I am quite impressed with our efforts as we managed quite a few, here are some of my favourites.....

These were on the terrace of the Radio Bar at ME Hotel - rubbish service, but wow what a view!! Cocktails were tasty too!

Now these were special - we're at One Aldwych here and this is their Smoking Charlie cocktail - inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! Yes, it was smoking!!

Finally, my favourite place - the American Bar at The Savoy. Amazing service and amazing cocktails!

Oh, I've got one last thing that I'd like to share with you....I met someone very important when I was in London.....

Hee, hee! Yes, Becca and I spent quite a while running around Hamleys like a pair of big kids!! This was just one of their Lego models!
Thanks for popping by today,

Looks like you had a brilliant time! I was at uni with the guys who started the Rumours cocktail bar in Covent Garden, although I don't know whether it's still there now (it was a long time ago!). Love your fun card - the Echo Park paper is spot on! Hugs xx

What a great post Rachel, our trip round round the London bars is very much my sort of sightseeing and Hamleys, well of course it has to be done.

And Christmas this time of the year is just not on as far as I am concerned, I've been on it for C & C since May and I never want to see another Santa stamp.

But you have risen the the challenge perfectly and the cool blues compliment the snowman perfectly.
