Snow Delight


Lunch was a success on Sunday and everybody ate everything and i couldn't believe how much H's friend Fraser and his brother ate, but gee i'd rather feed children like that, than picky ones and we managed a walk too - in between the hale stones !!

I saw this cute little character on someone's blog, as i'm a sucker for snowmen, i had to have him !! : Penny Black - Snow Delight 3536H', the snowflake edging around the image is : Penny Black - 'Snow Scroll 3892K', the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Christmas Banner 40-253/ Slapstick set', the snowflake strip : Martha Stewart - Snowflake', the circle snowflake : Martha Stewart - 'Skyland Snowflake' - it's a deep edge punch, but ive seen someone make a circle, so i thought i would give it a go and it worked - yipee, all of the white card has been embossed with : Stamp Stuff - 'Crystal Embossing Powder', the papers are : Papermania - 'Home For Christmas', that i managed to get for £1.75 for the 6x6 pack, the adhesive shimmer dots are : Papermania

And another photo, as i didn't think the first one showed the sparkly crystal embossing

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

ABC Christmas - where 'F is for Family And Friends' - i've made this for my best friend, to remind her of what snow looks like, as she has just moved from Sydney to Brisbane (Australia).

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Paint The Town Red'

Crafty Hazelnut - where the Challenge 'CHNC 169 is - All Wrapped Up'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Week 302

Christmas At Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge i 'Brr It's Cold Outside'

Holly Jolly Christmas  - where the Challenge is 'Bingo' - i've gone for more than 3 layers, free, gems/ pearls

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
