Welcome to Friday - the weekend starts about ... NOW!

Morning all

What a truly DISMAL week we've had here, cold wet AND windy! Not great, still, Black Friday today - how many of you will be shopping today? Not me, I'm off to a craft retreat this afternoon and leaving hubby behind so .. can't vouch for whether he will be!

So, if you normally visit my blog of a Saturday to check my make for LIM ... as I'll be away there will be no chance to check the LIM challenge OR to make a card for it. There will be a blog post from me though, as I have a GDTM post to go "live" on Saturday but my next regular "challenge post" will be Monday - you can expect pix from the weekend so you might want to make yourself a coffee before paying that visit! See you then!

In the meantime, a little crafting to share with you all ....

My card
And a closer view which shows the twinkle in the snowman and heart,
along with the embossed "snow drift"!
The front and back of my card and reverse of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 300gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit and one piece of red, cut to mat
  • Snippet of white card cut to form a "snowdrift" and run through my big shot inside a fancy embossing folder before edging with Distress Ink in tumbled glass
  • Darcie's snowman and sentiment (from JCS0062) stamped using Memento tuxedo black and the heart image from the same set stamped using Distress Oxide in candied appled
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils to colour, blended with sansodor and a paper stump
  • Wink of Stella clear gel glitter brush pen used to add a little twinkle along with stardust stickles

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Addicted to Stamps - challenge No. 269 - CLEAN AND SIMPLE
  2. Crafting By Designs - November challenge - GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS
  3. The Paper Shelter - challenge No. 319 - CHRISTMAS
  4. The Merry Christmas Challenge - challenge No. 44 - ANYTHING CHRISTMAS GOES
  5. WaterCooler Wednesday - challenge No. 146 - CHRISTMAS

Have a great weekend and stand by for some pix on this blog, on Monday!

Cute as Kathy. Looks like that wee snowman really needs that I'm guessing Hot Chocolate with marshmallows. Nice touch of bling too. Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM.

Sorry to hear you're having such dismal weather where you live. One good thing is it makes it easier to sit inside and create wonderful Christmas cards like yours. Such a cute little snowman with his warm cuppa chocolate. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week Kath. Fun card!
