Southern Girls Challenge 7

It's week 7 at Southern Girls and the theme this week is to use heat. Now,I have a bit of an aversion to heat embossing but did emboss my greeting though it doesn't show very well,my heat tool is rubbish,I decided to use shrink plastic,using my cuttlebug snowflake die to cut it before shrinking it and overheating the blinking tool.

The super cute image is by Karen's Doodles,one of this week's challenge sponsors,I coloured it using Copics,masked the image and then used distress inks on the background. The papers are Forever Friends "Santa's On His Way"

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
GC81,Snow people,
Crafty Calendar 14,Winter snowflakes,
Crafty Ho's,Photo Inspiration,
Now for a little bit of news,you may know that I've been the Guest Designer at Southern Girls for the month of November well,I've been lucky enough to be asked to be a permanent member of the team,joining a very talented group of ladies and am part of Lou's group,how exciting is that!
Please scroll down for my earlier post today.
Thanks for stopping by,
