Snippets and Snowmen

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I spent some more wonderful moments with my little Miss Cutie Pie before she left yesterday afternoon for the long journey home with her Mommy and Daddy. They're just about to start the next leg from Singapore to Brisbane and will be home early hours of tomorrow.

I must admit that I'm already missing my cuddles so I decided to make a CAS card to occupy myself this morning. I've used a Bugaboo image coloured with Promarkers and some pieces of spotty papers from my snippets box. Then I just added some gems and a sentiment. To the naked eye the green of the paper is more like the green in the image but the camera doesn't seem to agree.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Passion for Promarkers challenge 'spots and/or stripes'
Catch The Bug challenge 'anything goes'
Sparkles Christmas challenge 'show me a snowman'
Noor! Design UK challenge 'CAS or fully loaded'

Thanks for popping by today and for taking the time to leave a comment. I should be getting myself organised over the next few days and be spending more time in Blogland again and getting around  to return your visits.

Such a fun card Andrea. I love the fab image and your colouring is perfect. Your papers and embellishments are fantastic. Thanks for joining us at PFP this week for our ‘spots and/or stripes’ challenge. Hugs, Denise x

Green acts crazy with my camera as well, which is why I don't make many mainly green cards, they're impossible to photograph. But even though you didn't capture the real color tome here I think it looks really nice, and probably even more so IRL. It's smile but cute and also looks stage friendly. Glad You shared it in this week's challenge over at Catch the Bug. Pia, DT

Super cute card Andrea - love the way they seem to be shivering!

I've been thinking about you over the weekend - in between digging Mrs A out of scrapes! Actually, I think it was mutual :) Keep your chin up - am sure you've got plans in the pipeline to meet up again soon.

Lovely to see you in the Playground, sorry for being late, I'm playing catch up right now!

You will miss your Cutie Pie but thank goodness for skype and the internet!
Your card is such a sweetie. I like those snowmen...coloured beautifully. Funny about how photos can change the colours, happens to me too.
