Snowmen and Unicorns

Good morning everyone as its Wednesday its the launch of our new monthly challenge over at Crafting by Designs  Our theme for these challenges is always Anything Goes.
This month we have two great sponsors

Prize - $15 gift certificate
Sparkle N Sprinkle has been in business for over 20 years, with a huge following. Our popular Youtube channel features a new technique video every week! In 2017 we initiated exciting changes to the company which have been well received. In addition to an eclectic mix of digital and rubber stamps, we offer hundreds of other fine products for your crafting pleasure.

Prize - winner's choice of 3 digi images
Open since November 2015, Scrap N' Dipity specializes in cute little digi's as well as cartoon dolls. My style is definitely eclectic, I like to create a bit of everything and go anywhere from cute to creepy - though my creepy is usually cute as well! My favourite things to draw are cute little animals, or dolls whether they are fairy or not, my only criteria is that they have big, pretty eyes! I started created graphics online with little pixel graphics, after over 10 years of doing that I decided I wanted to try my hand at something else. There are a few ladies from the pixel community who have crossed over to digital scrap booking and suggested I do the same. I started by transferring some of my pixel creations to digital stamps and never stopped!

For this challenge I did a Twofer( as one of my followers says). I used a lovely Christmas image from Sparkle N'Sprinkle called Snowman With Heart and from Scrap N'Dipity I used a great stamp called Lets Be Unicorns
