Nic and Claire's Midnight challenge!

My friend Claire has been having some mojo problems lately so we decided on saturday night we would make a card together via IM chat.... the webcams wouldn't work but we wern't gonna let that stop us.

We picked this fab Sketch Saturday sketch #69

and used this weeks Allsorts challenge #19 which is 'Snowflakes in September' for our theme.

We had both decided to use one of the new christmas manga's and funny enough we both picked Miss Clause... isn't she just adorable!
I also joined in with this weeks Basic Grey challenge #4 which is 'Embossing'
{materials used: Basic Grey papers, DCWV cardstock, SN Manga stamp, Copics, CB Snowflake embossing folder, Die cut merry christmas coloured with distress stickles, lace and metal charms from my collection}

♥ HUGZ ♥
