Snow Fun


Well i don't know about Flamin' June, it should be known as Monsoon June !!

Thank you for all your kind comments about me my new DT post, some of them really choked me up.

Well i should really be doing other cards (like Father's Day and a childs card too), but i was getting a bit Christmas Card withdraw symptoms, so i had a route around and came up with this sweetie, and i teamed it up with my favourite paper pad Bo Bunny - 'Snowfall Collection', and you know when you have one of those ideas about using something and after a Love (I love the die) / Hate - in the fact it doesn't like me, as it took 5 attempts (even used baking parchment) and nearly breaking my Big Shot to cut the MB - 'Frostyville Wreath die to decide i will think twice about using the damn thing again !!, i used the MB - 'Snowflake Corner', the middle row of snowflakes is MS - 'Deep Edge Snowflake Punch', decorated with blue pearls from my stash, the sentiment is PB Transparent Set - 'Let It Snow', snow was created using 'Aleen's True Snow' and the glitter is Stickles - 'Turquoise'.

Beautiful die cuts, colours and a delightful image - lovely card - thanks for entering my CHNC challenge 128 - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for June - I'd love to see it there too. x

Soooooooo gorgeous Sam. Sweet adorable image and I love the DP's. The dies look fabulous.
It's really frustrating when some of the dies don't cut or release properly - sometimes it helps to rotate them and pass through again - or place at the edge of the cutting plate.
Hope this helps :o)
