It's snowing!!

well over at Sweet Stampin it is anyway!!

Hi blogworld,

There you are!  It's been awhile hasn't it - I've been mired down with all that cleaning but by today (and which day is it again?!) I should be coming out the other side!  And to those of you saying please come clean my house - nope, no chance!!!  Of course in-between all that cleaning we've also been moving furniture around starting the long process of changing rooms - I'll be posting pictures and waffle on that subject very soon!

Now down to business - so why is it snowing over at Sweet Stampin well because the challenge this week is 'Snow People'.  So any sort of snowmen, women, children, etc - and stamping, don't forget the stamping - are the name of the game.

We are sponsored this week by:


With our regular monthly sponsor, the wonderfullness that is:

So my card - Bugaboo were kind enough to let the DT pick an image each and this is my creation with my pick.

Front shot:

Close up arty farty:

sideways arty farty:

I used:

Digi stamp:
coloured with my Promakers

Go-Kreate for the circles
A punch for the little mittens - but whose, I've no idea!

I've blanked it out - it's not Christmas yet!!

Anything else?
Craftwork cards - card blank and sentiment
Glamour Dust
Viva Decor pen (which I smudged!)

So are you going to pop on over to the blog and join in then?  I do hope you do, you could win a fabbo prize and you will certainly see some wonderful DT inspiration.

Oh and I'm waaay behind with commenting, again!, I'm hoping to get round and see everyone over the weekend.  So hope y'all have a great weekend and see you soon.

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

Hi Sarah,
I got my little gingham reindeer from Hobbycraft, but they don't seem to sell him online, so I hope there's a store near you!
I had a quick 'google' myself when I realised I'd only bought one packet, but couldn't see any similar ones - if you find any let me know :-)
Fab colours on this card - love the little pearl dots.
