A Christmas card I forgot to blog... Ooops!

Hi all

A quickie from me tonight.... I forgot to blog this card before Christmas...  just found the pic in my 'to do' file on the 'puter...  so here it is.

I used the Country Landscape die from Memory box for the shape (d'oh.. obviously)...  Coloured the little houses and trees...  used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the embossed snow effect on the white, a snowflake paper (can't remember the name) for the background... which I've sponged with some Distress Ink as it got towards the horizon.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat... cut out with a Stamping Up Word Window punch..  then I added a green twine bow.  The finished touch was some bigger than normal glitter to give the effect of snow... not sure if that worked.

So there you go...  I didn't get to use it much this year, but think I'll definitely be using it next year!!

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting

PS.... I had a tooth 'fall out' this afternoon (well one of those that's 90% filling and 10% tooth).... and all I did was eat a little Bounty sweet from what was left of our tin of Celebrations!!  I've got to admit, it's been wobbly for about a year or so, so needed to be got rid of... I just wasn't expecting it to be that way!! LOL!
