Snowflake Snowdude

 Hi all.  Here this evening with a super quick Christmas card, the glue on the sequins isn't even dry yet!  I added a few layers of sparkle to the snowflakes and to his hat trim; clear gloss to his nose.  Snowman (from Creative Depot) popped up on foam pads.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Layout inspired by the sketch at MFT Wednesday Sketch #644, though I've maybe gone too far off piste with this one!

First Christmas card of the year!

 Well that was definitely a day for TV, it would have been fantastic to be in London!  I love all the pomp and ceremony of the Royal celebrations and was so pleased to see it all go off so well.  I'm sure they were all glad of a sit down and a cup of tea (or something stronger!) after it was all over.

I used the time while I was watching it to make a wee Christmas card, first of the year so I'm well behind schedule!  I stencilled my background, added some silver metallic splats, snowflake die cut (covered in gloss and glitter), and then a few little stars to finish.  Bear from Creative Depot popped up on foam pads.

Sunshiney Flowers!

 Hi all!  I've been struggling with my mojo (yes, again!) so I was pleased to see the challenge over at Just Us Girls was to CASE a designer.  I used these pretty daisies from Penny Black that don't see ink often enough.  Coloured with polychromos and then masked off the flowers and added some metallic ink splats.  The sentiment was a total faff ... it's actually orange card stock but didn't look right and even double mounting and then adding another black layer, still looked 'meh'.  Then I remembered my buddy Cheryl painting dies with her metallic paints so I gave it a go and now have a gold sentiment!!

Snippets Playground #453 - bit of a different snippets for me this week - my scrap paper I use over my craft mat to keep it clean was just about to head for the recycling, but I ended up using it to cut the masks for my flowers
