Snowy & Hedgy


In some ways i wish H hadn't gone back to school this week - as we seem to be having a few problems at the moment and his teacher is not helping the situation.  Then to top it all i have gained a hacking cough, that only seems to rear it's ugly head at night time, when i just want to sleep :-(

This card has been about 4 days in the making - firstly i couldn't decide which 5 papers to use, then next it was rotating the sketch and working out where it all fitted together. 'Snowy' has glamour dust on his hat, and i've used 'Aeleens True Snow'  The papers i used are Kars - 'X-mas Collection / Speciality Paper Pad', the die cut snowflakes are Spellbinders 'Snowflake Wonder' - covered in Stampin Up heat & stick powder, then dazzling diamonds, with Dovecraft' gem brads in the centre.

Today's Card And Challenges :

ABC Christmas  - where 'D is for Designer Paper'
