August???

I can't believe it is August already!! Not that you would know it as it is bucketing down here in not so sunny Blackpool.  That's about par for the course last week was beautiful and now my son is getting married this Saturday and the weather has changed :-[  Oh well perhaps it will be nicer in London which is where the wedding is going to be - fingers crossed.

My card is one I have done for Christmas which is fast approaching!


Its a gorgeous Lily of the Valley Stamp which I have tried to colour in with Copics - still need sheds more practice!!  I have put some flower soft and Glamour dust on the trim of her jacket and some True Snow and Glamour Dust on the ground.  The papers are downloaded from Nitwits - I love these papers they are so co-ordinated and there is a huge choice.  The sentiment is also from Lily of the Valley and I have edged it with Stickles. I have used Spellbinders dies for the cut-outs and also cut out two snowflakes from Spellbinders with acetate and covered it with Glamour Dust - the silver snowflake is an old one.  I will enter it in the following challenges:

Craft your Passion Challenge - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations Challenge - Circles
Stamps and Fun = Creativity - Christmas
The Ribbon Reel Challenge - white or cream, aqua, pink, ribbon or lace and flower (does a snowflake count??)
The Crafty Pad - use something clear
Gingerloft - make it sparkle
Sweet Stampin' - Christmas in July
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in July



Take care x
