Chill out over at Pollycraft Mondays!

Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post (it's a fun one!)


Well, true to form, we really are chilling out here in the UK with loads of snowfall over the weekend!  A new challenge has opened over at Pollycrafts Monday and the lovely and uber talented Anita is challenging us to...

Chill Out!!

For my make, I just had to use chilled out Retro Chester!



He is so funky - I am in love with Chester!!  I used the sketch over at Raise The Bar and papers from Cosmo Cricket's Social Club (25% off in Quixotic Paperie at the moment here!).  I'm going to give this to one of my nephews - he is so funky too!

Check out the rest of the DT's chilled creations here!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
