My lovely blogland friends

Monday 27 December 2010


Hi there everyone, why is it when you have a day off work you still get up early? I love the week between Christmas and New Year, its always seems so relaxed after the hectic run up to Christmas.   I wanted to share this card today which I made using my favourite snow people (and animals) stamps from Joanna Sheen for the Gingersnap Creations GC81 Challenge where the theme is snow people.

I stamped and masked the dog and mouse before stamping Mr And Mrs Snowman and added a little colour with promarkers, some bling with white flowersoft and prisma glitter and glossy accents to everyone's black noses. Once the glitter and glossy accents were dry I dusted some blue ink around the edges very lightly with a shaving brush. The image and sentiment are matted and layered onto pastel blue and pastel green card, The sentiment is a stamp from Elusive Images, boooo hoooo I'm so sad that they are no longer trading but hopefully it won't be long before Glenda is up and running with some new stamps again.

I've added another layer of white card, edged with crushed glass glitter, some white punched snowflakes, blue gems and blue ribbon. The layout is a sketch from Mojo Monday a few weeks ago but of course I didn't  get the card finished in time lol.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Free and easy, anything goes
Wags'n'whiskers: Snowflakes
Corrosive Challenge: Bling it on
One Stitch at a time: Anything goes
Craft Your Days Away: Punch it out
Totally Gorjuss: for Someone Special ( this was for my hubby)
A spoonfull of Sugar: christmas card

Thanks for calling by today. I hope you've had a good Christmas with lots of lovely crafty treats!!

  1. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response.

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Thank you also for joining in at Stamptacular Sunday.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
