World Kindness Day Challenge

Did you know that today is 'World Kindness Day'?  Well, to mark the occasion, that is the theme for this week's challenge at Bugaboo. We want you to think kindness, friendship, gratitude, encouragement, congratulations...   There is also a sketch to follow which can be seen on CATCH THE BUG (where the rest of the details can be found too)

I needed to get a move on with my Christmas cards and chose one of these fairly new images from the A Kids View Winter range as I think it depicts friendship nicely. Nothing better than a snowball fight with friends in the snowy season.


The backing panels were made using my snowflake wheel from SU and Night of Navy ink to match the cardstock.


The inside carries on the friendship theme with this SU stamp and their snowflake flurries stamp. All again in Night of Navy

So fancy joining in the challenge? We have the usual 7, 4 and 2 digis of your choice to give away so head on over to CATCH THE BUG to see the rest of the inspiration from the DT and the rest of the details.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
BEE CRAFTY ~ Use a digi to create a Christmas card
SWEET STAMPIN ~ Snowflakes
2Sisters ~ Christmas
