Let it Snow

Our Challenge this fortnight at Ooh La La Creations is "Let it Snow" chosen by Debs.  For my card I have used an image and papers from the Shawn Jenkins cd which has lots of lovely Christmasy images.   I added some die cut mittens and Let it Snow sentiment as well as some snowflakes and twine.   The DT cards are as usual fabulous, why not have a look and join in as I know everyone is making Christmas cards at the moment!

Christmas Eve

The challenge this fortnight at CD Sunday is "Something beginning with H".  I have chosen this image from the Thomas Kinkade cd by Joanna Sheen which I have had for years and have not used once!  Oh I have admired the paintings, just never made a card from one!  My "Something beginning with H" is House and Horses. I mounted it onto a Sue Wilson die cut and added some ivy and a tartan bow.  I was a bit worried about photographing the card as the ivy is cut from that mirror card which changes colour (had it forever) and it sometimes shows black when photographed but luckily it came out OK.

"Angels" at Winter Wonderland
"Sprinkle" at Creative Card Crew

I made this card using a delightful kit from Paper Creator Crafts. All the elements on the card are from Paper Creator.   I die cut a heart in the centre of the purple check paper and embossed some pearlescent card which I placed behind it.  I added a bow and some punched borders and pearls to finish.

I am entering the following challenges:

"DT Call" at Paper Creator Crafts
"Die cuts and/or Punches" at Fab n Funky
