I always say that we do not have an Autumn here in Malta.. and in fact at the moment the  temperature is a hot 30C!.. People are still going to the beach but I'm really longing for some cooler weather now .. .. 
Anyway, I'm sure you didn't stop here today to hear about the weather! So onto my card and for today I have made a Christmas card for the new challenge starting today at

The theme for this week is
For my card I am using one of our sponsor's cute images which I colored with my promarkers and then added some snow with my special pen. DP is from Papermania, Christmas trees with an oldie punch, snowflake die is Spellbinders and corner die is Die Namics!

To finish it off I added some glitter, gems and of course a nice sentiment as well.

We are this week sponsored by the Stamp Fairy
and the prize is a $10 gift certificate.

Entering my card in these challenges today:

Hi Dora. Gorgeous card, super sweet image.
You must tell me what pen you have used for the Snow, it's amazing and looks fab.
I hate that when you win a challenge and no show with a prize... I won years ago and never received my prize, in the end after over a month I was sent a token gesture, but it was not the original prize, don't understand that really, if you run a challenge someone is gunna win!
I did not enter that challenge again. Debbiex
