DT post for Crafty Calendar

Hi everyone - me again with another challenge this time for Crafty Calendar.

The sponsors this month are Di's Digi Stamps and

We are a small creative team writing and illustrating fantasy adventure and children's books. We love to draw fun and amusing characters, and are happy to offer them to you as digital stamps. We hope you like these digital images and they help make your creations bright, interesting and memorable!  

I decided to use the Dancing Squirrel image from Fabrika Fantasy. I know it looks a bit 'summery' but thought I would be able to make it look a litte more 'wintry'
I took the image into my photo editing suite to make it the size I needed & also add some holly around the head instead of the summer flowers and added a candy cane. I used the coloured image.
I cut out the box card using my cutting machine. 
Found some 'snowy' background paper. Put the box card together, applied some Stickles to the trees for a frosty look. While this was drying I die cut some snowflakes from white & blue card, embossed the let it snow sentiment onto white card & went over it with some Steel Blue InkaGold.
Cut out the image and candy cane, fixed the candy cane into the 'hands'. Placed the image into the box card using foam pads. Added the sentiment along the top & arranged the snowflakes onto that. Hope you like this month's make.
Pop over to the Crafty Calendar blog and have a look at all the other DT's makes. Hope to see you  entry on there!
Merry Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by,
