Christmas in March with Crafty Ann's Challenge

Fabulous Friday to you all! 

Lets kick start the weekend by crafting along to this fortnights challenge with  
#62 - Christmas In March
I think we are all a little guilty of never quite being fully prepared for Christmas when it approaches so why not take the challenge with us this week and make an early head start on those Christmas cards or gifts so when December rolls around this year, you can sit back, pick up a drink and for once, not be one of those madly insane people you see running around at the last minute trying at best to get yourself into gear and organized for the SILLY SEASON! 

With Christmas usually ending up being more expensive than a joyous occasion on the wallet I have started doing my usually and began stocking up on pressies and gifts that I have spotted on sale through out the year.  This gorgeous paper pierced snowman cracker and matching tag made the perfect packaging for a necklace that is for Ben's mum this year.  I usually don't start my pressie wrapping till closer to Christmas but this year I seem to have two little gremlins who have started exploring what goodies are hidden in my bedroom cupboards and I think it is a good way to take even more of the Christmas rush out of the equation.

This little snowman fellow is of course the gorgeous guy from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop.  There are some very versatile images of this little guy in the shop from being a single image to being in a snow-globe and also a decoration, so there is lots of ideas for him along with other stunningly gorgeous Christmas images so please do stop by the shop for a look.  

By playing along with us this week you will be in the running to win  
2 digi images, 1 Backing paper collection and 1 pre-coloured sheet of your choice from the gorgeous Crafty Ann's!   

Thanks for dropping by to see me this week and I wish you all a crafty weekend!

Oh wow Leesa these are lovely and you really are being organised this year. I think I should definitely take this challenge as I am always rushing with last minute cards and gifts.
The snowman is adorable and I really like the cracker gift box.
