Grey Wet and Snowy Outside ...

... so what better excuse to get crafting!

Actually it didn't really go to plan as my mojo seized up!!!
I managed one card though and I'd like to enter it into a few challenges

Supplies Used:
Stencil: Memory Box
Clearly Besotted: Say it in Style Sentiment
Doodlebug: Sprinkles
Distress Inks: Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed 
& Scattered Straw

I decided to try out a new challenge for me using a sketch 
from Crazy4Challenges but I think if it's allowed they have 3 challenges
on the go so I'd like to link up to all three:

the idea of this one is to use the image as a blank canvas for a new craft room
 and in addition to stamps and paper the first things that came into my head to install 
in this gorgeous room should be used in my project ... so I'm going with inks and bling


Other Challenges:
