Sweet Stampin - Snowflakes & Snow-people



Morning :) finally the weekend.... Yay!  Thanks so much for all the lovely comments yesterday and good wishes.  The rain appears to have finally stopped - for now (though we have gales and sleet instead!) and the insurance assessor is coming out sometime next week to look at our damaged stuff. 

Anyway, onto todays card.  Our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin this week is Snowflakes and Snowmen, and we are sponsored by Crafty Emmas Store, so its a brilliant prize :)

I used a fab digi-image from Tickled Pink, coloured with PM's and used different shades of medalion glitter for highlights.  The rest of the work was done by Marianne and Doo Hickey dies. The Moonstones are WOC and the backing card I have had years! :)

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Let it Snow
By The Cute and Girly - Let it Snow
Tickled Pink Challenges - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today and I hope everyone has a smashing weekend,

Super multiple layering of the die cuts & the soft icy colouring is entirely apt. Glad you are recovering from the water.........
Take care in the current conditions though.

Keep safe.
