Caroling Snowmen..


Morning Girls

I had a nice surprise recently....  Christine from Paper Nest Dolls got in touch with me to ask would I make a couple of cards for display in her shop in Florida using her images...  (I'd made a couple of cards personally for Christine a couple of years back..)  so it was lovely to hear from her again and to find she is now doing her own digi images and stamps. I jumped at the chance of using them - and would like to say a very big thank you to Christine for asking me to Guest for a while!

Today's card is using Caroling Snowman... a gorgeous image to colour which really comes to life... and of course, needed LOTS of sparkle!



I decided on traditional reds and greens, and used some tartan paper from a Nitwits/LOTV Paper Pad... Classic Christmas to match their tartan scarves.  I coloured with copics and promarkers...then used a Marianne's Craftables CR1248 Circle die.  I added a sentment from LOTV Handwritten Christmas Sentiments.. then finally some tiny little snowflakes that were waste from a border punch..  some gems, and a tiny green twine bow... oooh and some red Stickles for the holly berries and the ear muffs!

Hope you like.... I'll be back next week with another of her fab designs which is being released soon...  so exciting!!

Hope you're all keeping ok...  and now the Autumn has arrived, are able to get more crafting done!

Be back soon...
Big hugs

  15. Hi Christine, love those sparkly snowmen! Fab card and colour choices.

    The picture, in the previous post, of your daughters is gorgeous. You have beautiful daughters.

    PS - Ombre is, from what I can find on Google, a hair / nail colour trend. You start off with a dark colour at one end and graduated to a light at the other. I choose a purple/pink combo from a picture of some nails.

  16. Congrats on being asked to make some cards for Paper Nest Dolls and what a cute image! Covering the snowmen in glitter is such a fab idea and goes so well with the sentiment! It's all so beautifully co-ordinated as well with the tartan paper and scarves - lovely :-)

  20. Hi Christine. Thanks for the comment, sorry I've not responded sooner. It's been a busy week with my parents staying. It was lovely to meet you. It's always nice to actually meet and talk to people in the flesh. I spent far too much, especially on those half price Wee stamps :)
    It would be lovely to meet up at some point and have a crafty chat.
    Take care - Janine x
