Daring Cardmakers Challenge

The challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers is set by Keryn who lives in New Zealand and in the Southern Hemisphere, of course it is their Winter.... "use images, colour, embellishments that make you feel cold and remind you of winter...well here in Scotland it's doesn't have to be winter to feel cold....but not today...lovely and warm and would you believe it SUNNY!!!
I love this paper - it is heavily embossed with distressed snowflakes which I cut out to 3D and lightly covered in glitter. The scallop border was cut with Fiskars Shapecutter using the edge of one of the templates.

  • Paper: Sandylion Designs "Snowflakes"
  • Sentiment: Vellum Sticker from the same collection
  • Gems & Ribbon: from my stash

I have been busy today with card orders after my "no crafting" day yesterday but hey all work and no play makes Jill a dull just had to fit in one challenge.

  14. I love this card. Its so delicate and beautiful.

    I read a few more of your posts, and loved the pictures of your little grandies busy at work. I know what you mean about sleeping well, after a visit. Mine are 13 & 14, but when I have them, they run me all over the place looking for adventure!! (I sleep well also, after one of their visits)

    I also saw where someone griped about word recognition and boy! I couldn't agree more!! It seems that I never get the letters right the first time and sometimes, I get so frustrated I just move on. Thanks for posting that.

    It has been so fun hearing from people all over the world. You live in Scotland? One of my favorite countries even tho I've never been there. I knew a lot of Scottish people when I was growing up.

    Thanks for stopping by my post.



  15. Pop over to my blog, there's a little something on it for you.
