Let It Snow


Well what a difference a couple of days make !!, one minute i'm in my shorts and teeshirt, the next i've got my waterproofs out !!!, today i've done Yoga and then went for a Reflexology treatment, so i'm all chilled now.

I bought todays stamp in the Sir Stampalot sale at Christmas and wondered what i was going to do with it, until i saw the Challenge at Cupcake Craft, i knew exactly what i wanted to do - so i stamped it in versamark onto black card, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, then heated it, embossed snowflakes onto the other black card and layered it onto white bling card (i'm not sure it shows up on picture) and finished with a ribbon.

Todays Card and Challenges :

Cupcake Craft - where Challenge 162 is 'Black & White Christmas'

Bling It On - where Octobers Challenge is 'No Patterned Papers'

The Ribbon Girls - where the Challenge is 'Jingle All The Way To Christmas'

Paperplay - where Challenge No: 39 is 'White & One !!' - I chose Black

I wasn't quite happy with the first photo, so have added another one.
