ABC Challenge & Cute Card Thursday #138 & An Award

Edit Note:- I'm sorry that when this first posted the card was missing - It seems to be OK now. Sorry for the faux pas.
Hi girls. I hope you are all well and having a great time crafting. The weather is absolutely atrocious beside us at the minute, so there is no excuse needed to justify spending time in the craftroom. Wet, windy and cold - winter is definitely on the way.
Thanks for calling in to see me here. I hope you find something to make it worth your while.
I am entering this card into two challenges. ABC Challenge is "H is for Holidays" (I hope the Christmas theme qualifies) and Cute Card Thursday where "Anything Goes".
The image is Lili of the Valley's "Carol Singing" and I have coloured it using my Copics and Polychromos pencils. The papers are printed from one of my CDRoms and I have used a polka dot Bazzil as a mounting card. The large snowflakes are cut using a Martha Stewart punch and the medium and small ones are cut using a Nestabilities die. I have used lilac and white glitter card and the gems and stash are from my stash.
I hope you like this offering and would be indebted to you if you could find time to leave a comment telling me what you think. I love reading what you say.
I hope your week starts off well and that you stay safe and healthy.

And now an Award

I am so fortunate that I have been given this award by three of my blogging buddies. They are Lynn at Crafty Linby, Linda at Payne Holler Cards and Bev at Bev's Crafty Bits n More. Thank you so much ladies. Your regular visits and support is much appreciated.
The conditions of accepting this award varied very slightly across the three but to satisfy all three I have to tell you three things about myself that make me different and pass it on the five blogging buddies.
The three facts are:
1. I once won a cash prize for finding a Blue Star at an Ideal Homes exhibition that paid for my honeymoon.
2. I have been winched off a lifeboat into a helicopter during a training exercise.
3. I have never ever seen Coronation Street on TV.

I am passing this award on to the following fabulous bloggers:
Chris at Twinkles Glow with Stamps
Claire at CraftyC's Crafting Library
Sandra at Cherry Pickin's
Vicky at Kip's Cards
Cheryl at My Cardmaking Haven

Love and Hugs,
