Duckie & Hedgies

Hi,

Sorry i've been a bit awol for the last week, only i did a 2nd hand childrens sale on Saturday and we decided to try and declutter our house and sell some of sons old toys - so we spent most of last week sorting through, cleaning and pricing them up - fortunately we did really well and have earnt enough money to pay for son's new bike, so it was worth it.

Todays card is in colours i don't normally put together - Silver and White, my inital inspiration was some ribbon i bought from Tescos !! and some silver snowflake brads i had - once i found the fabby sketch and i was off - including having a play with my new PB 'Snow Scroll' stamp that i got at the NEC last year and also the Papermania Christmas strip embossing folders i bought in The Glitter Pot sale for 75p !!!

Right onto the Card and Challenges :

ABC Christmas - where they are up to 'E for Embossing and Embellishments' - i went for heat and embossing folders - the embellishments are : ribbon, brads and gems.

Winter Wonderland - where this weeks Challenge is 'Snowflakes'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No: 145
