Snowball anyone ??

Morning Folks!
How are your preparations for Christmas going??
I'm getting there with the shopping but not the wrapping etc!! If you have time we'd love you to join us at C.R.A.F.T. this week for our new challenge:


Now I have to admit to being a bit stumped by this challenge at first but after a bit of blog hopping for inspiration I came across the idea of sweetie bags, so here's my attempt:

Mint Imperial anyone??

The Snowman sign is from The Stamping Boutique one of our sponsors this week and is coloured with promarkers.

We are also being sponsored by Craft Obsessions (one of my favourite online suppliers) so you could get your hands on a little shopping spree!!
