First Snow

Hi Peeps,

Hope you all had a blast welcoming in the New Year.  I went to friends and was so tired I fell asleep on the sofa around 2am and they kept waking me up until eventually I insisted I went to bed at 4am.  I left them to it, but guess who was better off the next morning...... hehehe.

I saw the challenge over at Colour Me Creative of Gold, Cream and White and really wanted to give this ago. My Crafts and Me DT stamps have only just arrived, I thought Mr Postie had taken up crafting, so thought I would use this beautiful image by the new designer Zindy Nielsen called "First Snow".  This image would suit Christmas as well as Winter birthdays or any winter ocassional card for that matter.



Lots of texture again from me, snowtex and the Make It crafty lasercut chipboard leaves and a helping of distress crackle paint too.

My favourite Tim Holtz on the edge snowflake die was itching to get another outing, lol.  I added a second layer of gold snowflakes too.






And.... these are my first photo's at night with YES, my craft light that I got for Christmas.  Much better than my usual effort, although you can't beat natural light.

As well as Colour Me Creative I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Simon Says - Something New (image)
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Snowy Day
Everybody Art - Snow
