Sunday 9 October 2011

Good morning bloggers hope you are all ok and enjoying your weekend but not necessarily the weather!  I have been a very poor blogger this last week but I have been under the weather for the last few days and it has been my husband's birthday and you just don't know where the time goes. I am still not 100% but feel better than I did so I thought it was about time to catch up with my blogging.  I am posting a card that I made a few weeks ago as I haven't made any for a few days now (signs of withdrawal):

The stamp is by Little Claire a Red Gingham Design and I have embossed it with silver EP and paper pieced it as well.  I have used two embossing folders for the backgrounds and coloured the snowflakes with copics.  I have a close up of the snowflake:

This is a whimsy die cut and I have coloured the pearl brad with copics also.  I have used my nesties to layer the image.  I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Little Claire - Christmas
Jingle Belles Rock - Pink Christmas
Bah Humbug - Glitz and Glitter
Christmas Card Challenge - Photo Inspiration
Creative Inspirations Paint - Embossing
Dream Valley Challenge - Monochrome

I will hopefully get chance to visit everyone later as we are having my husband's grandchildren over for a bit of a tea party for his birthday so it depends what state I'm in later!!  Thanks for looking, take care xx
