I did warn you that you might not see me again before the weekend, and I was right! I had a very productive day out Christmas shopping on Thursday. Spent a small fortune, but got all Christmas presents and even some birthday presents for hubby - he's very awkward you know and has a birthday in between Christmas and the New Year and to make matters worse it's one of those milestone birthdays for him this year as well. I won't tell you exactly what one, but lets just say he is 9 1/2 years older than me and you all know what birthday I didn't celebrate earlier this year!
Yesterday I was off to the Christingle service at Emilys' school, it was sooo sweet. Years Reception, 1 and 2 only - a sea of cute little faces! Tho Emily's face wasn't very sweet when she saw me - I don't think she liked me being there! She settled after awhile and was very well behaved, but didn't join in at all - I'm convinced she is going to be super shy like I am, wish she was more confident like hubby.
Anyway, enough of my waffle lets get onto the challenge. This week at Sweet Stampin' we would like to see some sort of snow on your cards - be it snowmen/women, flakes, etc. Anything as long as it features the white stuff.
This time we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store and you can win this fab Fizzy Moon paper pad.
So finally we get onto my card!
Detail of image:
I have to say that I'm quite pleased with this one. I just adore the paper pad and I don't know what I'll do when I run out as it has come out every year for, as I've been reliably informed, probably nearly 5 years!
So I used:
Digi image from Pollycraft (one of the fab new Swings and Slides releases) - Snow buds, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a touch of Stickles to highlight. I also used a bit of 3d gloss on her glasses, not sure if that shows or not.
The papers are all Craft House - Winter Wonderland.
Ribbon and trim from my stuff.
Craftwork Cards - card blank and sentiment.
Hope everyone is coping with the run up to Christmas and I suppose I will have to start my Christmas cards next week, otherwise I will be nipping out to the shops in a panic.
Have a good weekend everyone and I look forward to seeing all the wonderful entries I know there will be over at Sweet Stampin. If you want more inspiration, why not nip over, check out my teamies wonderful creations and join in while you are there!
