Mr Frosty

Well this has been one really busy week, not helped at all by the fact that I've had such a runny nose and sore eyes and sneezes.... definitely slowed things down and caused a few problems in the crafting department!

So here is another finished christmas card. I used a Wee stamp called 'Mr Frosty' coloured with Promarkers and touched up with Stickles and a Sakura glitter pen. The papers are LOTV layered up with white card and silver mirricard and the dies are a Spellbinders ornament and Memory Box ribbon Poinsettia (with extra leaves added). To finish I added some silver peel-offs, pearls and ribbon from my stash.

Such poor light today and I can't get a good photo showing the glitter... but it is there

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Rudolph Days November challenge 'anything goes christmas'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' card snippets for the die-cuts
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'christmas is coming'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'take your pick' I went for product theme 'bauble shaped'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'use any image'
Through The Craft Room Door challenge 'anything goes'
Memory Box challenge 'glitter'
Penny Black and More challenge 'anything christmas' 3rd entry
Stamping Sensations challenge 'festive flowers and foliage' 2nd entry

I'm also taking this over to Whimsy Stamps challenge where the theme is 'anything goes - holidays'

I'm on to my last few christmas cards now and hopefully will get them done by next week... then I plan on having a play with some of my new goodies. Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a great weekend

Stunning Andrea! I love everything about this beautiful card - and such a great idea to stamp the sentiment onto the bauble - little things mean a lot as the song says!

Hope you feel better soon - hopping around the Playground this week (literally) it's amazing how many folk have aches, pains, cold and flu! Let's hope we're all lots better ready for the big fat man in the red suit!
