Challenge 43 ... Snowmen...

Hard to believe that we're into our final few challenges for 2011 ... YES REALLY! How quickly the year has flown but oh what treats we Humbuggers have enjoyed along the way.  Your entries for our Diecut Challenge last week were amazing and we were bowled over, not only by the number of entries but by the standard and quality of the finished results.    We can safely say that die cuts are well-loved in craftland!
For this week's challenge, we welcome the return of another favourite theme
Snowmen
We're keen to see how many wonderfully different snowmen projects you are going to parade past us, although we have a sneaky suspicion that with our November Prize Draw as an added temptation, the corridors of Humbug Hall are going to be b-b-b-buzzing! 
But before you head off to trawl through your stash for your favourite frosty friend, just check out our DT examples in the Gallery below, where you will see we have a new kid on the cellblock!
Please welcome our November Guest Designer
We're really pleased you were able to join the team this month Colleen and hope you will enjoy your stay at Humbug Hall. 
As always, if you'd like to know more details about this week's DT projects,
or if you just want to leave some love for Ann,  Max and Colleen, then click on the links to visit our personal blogs.  Your messages are always appreciated and we do our very best to reply to everyone.
Colleen - Colleen's Card Creations
Ann - 'Just for Fun'
Max - Max's Craft Creations 

Huge apologies that we haven't yet got a photo of this week's prize, but someone at the Hall, (who shall remain nameless but isn't Max lol),  forgot to recharge the camera and all we're getting at the moment is an eerie red flashing light!    Eeek ... scary!   But don't worry, as by later in the day all will be well and this month's great prize will be on show.  
**Hint**
We're offering a combination of stamps and dies too so a real treat to get you salivating this month.  Batteries charged - camera at the ready - and here's a piccie of the prize on offer this month.


********************
The deadline for this challenge is 
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 10th November 2011
 *********************
You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different Christmas Projects as you want to share.  
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.
