Don't Be Fooled!

Tuesday, 8 January 2013

Evening all!

I am totally exhausted!  I started back at work yesterday and than had to take down all my Christmas decorations when I got home - and it wasn't easy with a knackered shoulder!  I'm now waiting on someone to come and help get the boxes back up into the attic as I had a hard enough time getting the empty ones down by myself never mind when they're full!  So for the time being my tiny kitchen is full of boxes!

Oh well, at least they're not in my craft room!

Time for another challenge!  The Creative Card Crew challenge is back from our Christmas holidays and we're raring to go!
The challenge for the next fortnight is sponsored by The Stamp Fairy

And they're offering one lucky winner $10 to spend in their store.

So the challenge is..

Snow & Ice!

 I decided to get a head start on next years Christmas cards!  But don't be fooled, it doesn't mean I've got caught up with everything else just yet!  Here's what I did

 The design team were lucky enough to be given some of The Stamp Fairy's gorgeous stamps to work with and I couldn't decide which one  to use so I used all 3!  Donny4, Donny6 and George 1 were coloured with the following copics:  Fur;E49,39,37,35,33. Hats and scarves; B95,93,91,V09,06,04,RV09,06,04. Carrot nose;YR07,04.  I used the B91 to shade the snow and then used a glue pen and glamour dust for a little sparkle.

The papers are DCWV "The Winter Stack" and I added some swarovskis and ribbon from my stash.

The inside has papers from the same stack and a computer generated sentiment.

So pop over to the Creative Card Crew blog to check out what the rest of the DT have made, they are all gorgeous!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Wow - love the bright impact! Your colouring is stunning Sheena. It took me an age on Sunday to take down all the decorations, and put the lights away still working... they are 18 years on the go! I was so glad when it was done tho. Nicola x
