Yes we have a Christmas Challenge over at Dottie's this week - hey but after the weather we've been greeted with this week I actually felt quite at home making this card. It's funny really - you spend all of November and December frantically trying to get all of your Christmas cards done in time - then by the time you reach the New Year you breathe a huge sigh of relief at being able to move on to something different..... well I do anyway! So sitting here in June creating something with a wintery theme was actually very refreshing after having such a long break from anything seasonal.
I knew I was going to use the gorgeous Madison in the Mountains for this week's card as she looks so snug in her Winter clothes. She's the kind of gal I would love to be....... you know, looks good in absolutely anything. Me? I put on a woolly hat in the Winter and look like I've been sent out in it for a bet, lol!
I used Basic Grey Granola papers, debossed the cream panel with a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and then dirtied it with Distress Ink. I used Woodware Chippies to create the idea of snowdrifts and then punched out varying sized snowflakes. There are a couple of Prima flowers added and Madison is coloured with Copics. The final touch was to glitter her boot fur with Stickles.
Hope you like the card and I would love it if you could hop over to check out the challenge....... the girlies have all done such a great job at creating something special and there are lots of cards featuring Dottie which are sure to make you smile...... they did me!! Not long now until the Pixie download release you know....... I'm so excited I could crush a grape, lol! Bet you haven't heard that one in a long time have you? Oh I know - I'm so eighties!!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend then ;o) We were supposed to be going to Wales today but there's been a change of plan - it's a long story so I'll save it for another day, but let's just say it involves my hubster blowing up one of his most expensive work tools last night and then a stray cat coming into our house and urinating it's scent in our lounge and bedroom ;o( Rapid trip to a pet store is the order of the day today for something to get rid of the most rancid smell you can ever begin to imagine! It's a good job I have a good sense of humour or else I might just scream, lol!
Toodles for now then and thanks so much for stopping by ;o)
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
