Warmest Wishes With Frosty

Hiya folks!

Well, don't know what happened to the storm last night, but I never heard it if it happened at all !! Sun is blazing this morning as I type but it was really cold last night, 1 degree c as I went to bed (that's 32 degrees f for those who speak old english! LOL)

Speaking of cold (tenuous link here) I have a card today that I made with Frosty the Snowman. You can get him HERE in the Delicious Doodles Shop. He was coloured with my usual watercolour pencils and scanned to the compy so I could print out several times and layer up with foam pads. (Tip Top Tuesday Tip). I have also popped some glittery dots for snow and highlights with pale blue stickles.

Went to the local craft shop the other day and bought some new Marianne die shapes of snowflakes, so I wanted to use these. I bought two sets, and intend on mixing and matching them. I used glitter card for the snowflake here, with some gems on and some inky points, and a big snowflake shaped gem that I have had in the stash for a couple of years!! Still have loads left - you may see more of these! LOL

My backing papers are my own design and feature a snowflake image I drew last year. Note to self - put in the shop!!! I made the border bit with an MS punch and inky edges with a blue ribbon from the stash. Had this one for a couple of years too! Bought a whole reel when I was selling on ebay (have several reels of diff colours) and as I don't sell there anymore I have tonnes of ribbon left over!!

Right, really must get on - have a Christmas Shopping night to prep for tonight. Be glad when it's all over then I can get back to some kind of normality and concentrate on the new Challenge Blog. Heck - that starts a week tomorrow, and I haven't made a thing for it yet!!! Better get me skates on as I am the boss. Doesn't set a good example when the boss puts her stuff in last minute!!! See ya later peeps!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Spoon Full of Sugar - Snow and Snowflakes
Tip Top Tuesday - Use an image + tip
(scan coloured images for decoupage layers)
Digital Tuesday - Use old stash
ABC - H for Holidays
Crafts and Me - Glitter
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
