Christmas and snowflakes!

This is a card that covers a few challenges this week.  Here we go....
ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for Bells, optional glitter - honestly, there is glitter on this...its on their hats, the branch and around the edge of the image - oh and also on the snowflakes!
Challenge up your life had the challenge snow and ice
Saturday Spotlight - snowflakes gone wild - well not exactly wild as such!!! But I did use double snowflakes for the embellies.
Susie and Vickie wanted to see Snow on their new challenge blog
Fussy and Fancy wanted Winter as their theme - hmmmm Christmas?
Phew - hope I did everything right!!!

And, my own personal challenge which I might need to explain here far as is possible (!!!!!) I am going to use the whole piece of paper within 5 cards.  To elaborate....I HATE waste, really do!  So, not only am I trying to use up as much as I can, but I am also going to try to use the WHOLE of a sheet of paper within the next 5 cards that I make.  So, you can see that I used the brown paper on this card and my other card today...there is a little bit left, so I need to use that up within the next 5 cards I make!  Well, cant do it on my next one as the theme is pink and grey!

Lets just see shall we?  Did well on all the blue papers and cards on the previous couple of cards (although still have some little bits to use of those!)

Thanks so much for taking the time to check these out....I really hope I have my comment verification off - if I dont, please let me know!!!
