Let it snow.....

Hi Everyone,

Firstly I'm sorry I haven't been about much this past week, with last minute shopping and then taking my son to University this week I have been a busy Mum and a sad one too :{  I'm sure he's having a great time and forgotten us already, but it will take me a while to get used to it.  I do have a couple more cards to put on so I will be playing catch up this week.  A huge thank you to my regular visitors, I really do appreciate you :)

So it's Monday and time for my LLC DT card.  This week Sandy has tasked us with the theme of "Autumn" and I know your peeking at my card and thinking this is not Autumn and your right, it isn't, lol.  So what is my interpretation of Autumn..... well I have taken the colours...... shades of reds, green, a little orange and some rustic brown.  Speaking of rustic brown have you seen all the new products in store at LLC...... rustic stars and bells to name a couple and look no further than my card...

*** I have now added this card to my Etsy Store but if you go to this link  Etsy will give you £5 towards your first purchase ***

I love this image by Lili of the Valley and I have coloured these two girls with distress inks and don't forget if you would like to learn please check out my colouring class and Kit and Clowder.

I used the Maya Design It's Christmas Time 6 x 6 paper pad and the took the "Let it snow" text from the bottom strip of the Maya Design Vintage Frost Basics Chritmas Die Cut sheet.

I added some of the new Maya Road Burlap trim and added the button trim to the centre.

Love the new Star pins and you can see one poking out from the little flower arrangement and a little wooden heart thread with the new prima Vax cord.  I also used the Vax Cord along with the Bakers Twine on the bells.

I used the new Marianne Design Anja's Circle Die Set LR0327 as a doily and added the new prima paper flower along with some kort and godt berries and  20mm roses.

I added some shabby white frantage to the rusty bells and rustic Stars.  The bells were tied with Vax Cord along with the Bakers Twine.

The tag was cut from a Noor Design die.

I have also added stickles and gesso.

Can you see the new Jumbo Pom Pom.... I thought they looked light snow balls on the sides.

This is absolutely perfect, your embellishments look stunning! Such beautiful colouring too. I decided to try some frantage for the first time after watching your brilliant tutorial and now I'm addicted so thanks for the tips and inspiration :)

A visit from me is looooong over-due, sorry! LOL; I was not the least surprised that you managed to tweak the Autumn theme into a Christmas card, but nevermind this is fantastic! Exactly what I was after; rustic, warm, cosy, traditional colours, nostalgia. Your card has it all, and so much more!!!
