Hi there folks - here's my card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge mid month reminder - oops!  Our theme this month is 'Let it Snow' so there's lots of images you could use for this one.

Here's my card with a touch of poetic licence 'cos I thought a brown chipmunk would stand out a tad too much - so here on Planet Susie he's an Arctic chipmunk!  Woo hoo!

We have two sponsors this month - Di's Digi Stamps and Fabrika Fantasy (where my little chippy came from).  They are offering great prizes - a $12 in store voucher from Di's Digis and digis from Fabrika.  Lovely to start off the New Year!


7" x 7" White card base - Anna Marie Designs
'Chipmunk' digi from Fabrika Fantasy
Paper - Docrafts 'Bellissima' Christmas
Embossing folder - Free with Papercraft Inspirations - very popular!!
Impression Obsession Dies - Snowflake die DIE024-X
Impression Obsession Dies - Snowflakes die DIE100-F
Memory Box Dies - Frostyville Wreath die
Memory Box Dies - Bianca Snowflake die
Cheery Lynn Dies - Snowflakes die C146
Graph'it and Flexmarkers
Sentiment printed and then foiled on my Minc machine.

I know you will be very busy this time of the year but if you can find the time to make a creation we'd love to see it.  Check out what my teamies have made over on the Crafty Calendar challenge site.

Just off to administer to Biscuit's wound - like Blossom he had a lump on his tum and had it removed yesterday - not sure what it is but it was definitely pricey!  Bless him though he's a lovely boy even if he is dribbling everywhere - they've put a drain in his tum eeeew - too much information peeps???

Take care all of you - especially out there in this wet weather.

Lots of love and hugs
