Winter wonderland!

The challenge this week over at Winter Wonderland is 'Let it snow'. Last year my christmas cards were made in a bit of a last minute rush so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get started early! This is the second christmas card I've made now this year, a good start me thinks!!

I coloured my GG image with distress inks and whispers pens before cutting out and mounting with 3D foam. Added onto a matt cut out with nesties. CS is coredinations and I embossed the white CS with my cuttlebug snowflake folder, I just love this, such a fab investment! The sentiment is from Craft work cards and I cut the surrounding CS matt freehand. Quite a simple card but I'm pleased with it! My OH said 'what's a fox got to do with christmas?', but I think this image has a lovely wintery feel to it and works perfectly on a christmas card! What do men know anyway!! Lol!

Look what I received in the post today from my lovely friend Janny!

Such a beautiful, detailed card filled with some gorgeous Tilda images. If you haven't visited Janny's blog please head over and have a look, her creations are just stunning and are stitched inside and out! Sorry about the poor lighting in the pic's the weather's been rubbish the past few days, wet and dull!

Well I've had an exhausting day at work so am going to have some tea, a quick blog hop and then an early night! Thanks to everyone who has sent me well wishes, I am feeling a lot better today!

Thanks for stopping by. TTFN!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
