It's A Cracker

It's Sunday so it's time for a new Hobbycutz Challenge. This week is "anything but a card/household item". That gives you chance to try something different and play, so why don't you join in and see what you come up with!
Our Sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments Design, the snowman image is from them, and Hobbycutz.

I am pleased so say I have finally got a set of pens of my own. Since I started colouring a couple of years ago I used to use my friends pens. But I have now decided which I like and am now the proud owner of a set of Spectrum Noir pens. I have coloured this image with them and I like them so much. I have just added a bit of glitter ribbon to my cracker and 2 Hobbycutz snowflakes, which I have covered in red glitter. I think Christmas is coming.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges
Colour me Creative - Anything Goes
Christmas Stampin - Christmas candy
Polkadoodles - Christmas is Coming
Crafty Little Fairies - Christmas in October
Moving along with the Times - Christmas Cuties
Lady Annes - Anything Goes
