Quirky Crafts SNOW Challenge

**This is my 3rd post for today.  If you are looking for the GI Christmas Blog Hop winner of the free Gabrielle image and/or the Clear Dollar Stamp creation, please scroll down**

I am so excited because I recently won a challenge over at Quirky Crafts Challenges and was asked to Guest Design for the upcoming challenge which starts today!

The current challenge over at QCC is SNOW and I was lucky enough to play with this adorable image from Paper Pretties called Sophia Snow Angel!!

Isn't she just precious?!  And lovin' that snow, too!!  I used up quite a bit of scrap Christmas papers from two seasons ago (trying to make room for those new pads, hehe) and some red flat back pearls I've had in my stash for quite awhile as well.  She has a hint of Stardust Stickles on her hat and her snow boots for a little sparkle.

So all you have to do to enter this fortnight's challenge is have some snow on your project - easy peasy right?!

There are two fabulous Sponsors for their SNOW challenge - Paper Pretties

And Limited Runs Digis!! 

Be sure to check out the QCC Challenge Blog for all the details!!  Can't wait to see you there!!
