Let It Snow with Sweet Stampin!

Hi everyone! Well it's time for another challenge at Sweet Stampin and we are sponsored by the fab  Quixotic Paperie and there is a £10 Voucher to spend in the store up for grabs so come on girls join in the fun!!! the theme is 'Let It Snow' and with most of us making Christmas cards right now what could be simpler:))) I have used this fab snowman image from Sassy Cheryl and lots of snippets from my crafty stash and the snowflake border and branch border are from Memory Box and the fab ivy die is from Joanna Sheen's signature dies. I have added glitter to the die cuts but you can't see it very well and the snowman has glossy accents on his hat..mittens and boots but it doesn't photograph well...LOL. I shall toodle off now I'm going to do some shopping so I might be some time!!! lots of hugglessssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What a fabulous card. You can feel the winter chill coming off it. Great use of so many dies to give the card a nice snowy feel, like lightly blowing snow.

Darnell J Knauss said...

This is super cute, Sue! I'm sitting here smiling from ear-to-ear at this adorable snow guy enjoying the snow coming down!! I'm so sorry that I've been such a bad bloggie visitor of late. I suppose it will be that way for all of us now until after Christmas. But all the prep and shopping and wrapping and making cards is such fun!! Hugs, Darnell
