Snowy Fun!

Morning all! It's almost the weekend, although that makes no odd's to me as I am working, but I do have the day off today!! I can't believe that this time last week I was getting ready for my brothers wedding. Time really does fly!

Anyhow onto today's card. I know that christmas is still a few months away {its actually 16 weeks today!!} but I am afraid that you may start seeing more and more christmas cards on my blog. It's just that my card box is overflowing with cards, I haven't been selling them at work lately so they are accumulating. I still want to craft so I thought I would get a head start on my christmas cards.

It actually fits in very nicely with the theme over at PB Saturday as this week it's christmas and I used the sketch over at Stamp With Fun , I love this CAS sketch and will definately be using it again! I am also going to enter this card into Stamptacular Sunday Challenge where the theme is 'scallop mania'. Although you can't see it very well I used my scalloped nesties to frame snowy.


Image: Snowy from Penny Black, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Paper: DCWV Christmas stack


Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, xcut snowflake punch

Misc: woodware adhesive pearls {from the hobby house}, glitter glue, white sheet of foam {for snowflakes}

Well I hope you like today's festive offering. I am hoping to get some crafting done today, probably when my OH goes to work tonight. I can't wait to ink up my new magnolia fall stamps. I've seen some of you have already been playing with yours and you've made some amazing cards with them!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave me a comment so that I know you have been, I really do enjoy reading them!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
