Another week gone by!

Hi All

I can't believe another week has gone by without me posting! I'm busy card-making - Honestly! I just have to get loads done for the orders I take for personalised cards - so don't get a lot of time to post - although I do get through the blogs I follow as hopefully you'll see my comments!

Anyway - onto today's image - it's one from LOTV called Angels with Crib. I stamped it with Memento Ink and coloured with my Copics. Then I used a corner punch to round the corners, and then distressed the edges with scissors. I added stickles glitter glue onto the distressed edges and sprinkled with prisma glitter... and also added glitter onto the angels wings and some red stickles onto the holly on her head. Believe it or not, there are snowflakes on the main part of the card - made with my snowflake embossing folder through the Cuttlebug - but although they're lovely in real life, the camera hasn't shown them up too well! I've added a diamante to each snowflake too. I distressed the edge of the snowflake card too - then put that onto blue card. Now....... i THINK that was all!!

This was a nice card to work on - as it didn't take too long - the design 'came to me' as they often do while I was in bed last night..... weird! Good job I have a pad of paper by the bed to do a quick drawing!! lol

Anyway - hope you like it - I would love to hear your comments (as always!) There is nothing like seeing what fellow crafters think of your card - it means a lot to get a seal of approval!

Apparently snow due on Thursday here in Yorkshire this week - hope we don't get too cold!!

Bye for now

Will be putting another couple of later...
