A new week and a new challenge!

Hya friends. Well, here's another week about to start and to kick it off,
 it's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up.

The theme this time is 'Favourite Colour(s)'
Now what could be easier than that!

MY favourite colours are Christmas ones and to prove it, here's a card I made using the adorable
(Click on the name and it will take you to Wendy's Etsy store).

He's so cute. He's so happy you can't help smiling can you!
I framed him with a Spellbinders Fancy Frame and some paper poinsettias from a hugs box of Christmas flowers that I won  a while ago on Facebook, courtesy of  Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers.
I LOVE poinsettias! 
The candy stripe paper is from SU!
The green patterned paper is from Simple Stories called 'Handmade Holiday'.
I coloured my happy snowman with Copics and added a touch of Stardust Stickles to the ground and the flowers.
I sponged the Spellbinder's frame with TH 'Broken china'.

Well my good buds, that's my favourite colours.
I do hope you join in with our challenge.
We love to see your amazing projects.
