Let It Snow...

Hello there!

How is everyone this morning?!  Good I hope :)  

I am going to get into the swing of things early this year and posting regularly is right up there on my to-do list.  Over the past few years I either seemed to have a lot of time or no time at all - this was due in part to work and other boring life commitments, but also to falling out of the habit of photographing and actually posting about the cards I made.  This year I am determined that it will be different and I am planning (with all the good intentions that January brings!) to make a considerably stepped up effort to come here more often!  I hope you don't get bored of seeing me so often!

Anyway, that's my little waffle over - on to the more interesting part, hopefully!  :)

Here's a little card I made for two challenges - WOW! Embossing Challenge where the theme is Ice & Snow and CASology where the cue word is 'Winter'.

I don't know if it shows up very well in this photograph, but the snowflakes are fabulously sparkly!  As is usual, this card looks better in real life but I hope you can get the general gist of it?!

Thanks for dropping in :)

Card:      Paper Mill Direct - White
Stamps: Papermania - Let It Snow
Ink:        VersaColor - Lapis Lazuli

  1. A beautiful, simple, card that's sooo effective! Love the sparkly highlights on the snowflakes.

  2. See this is exactly why I'm not sure 'winter' is a good cue word. I think we need some "DON'T Let it snow" cards! lol! Having said that, this is beautiful - love the texture and the pops of blue. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week, Sian!

  3. I saw the glitter on the snowflakes when I clicked on the image to enlarge. They look fabulous!
