Well this week has been flying by and I'm wishing it would slow down a little.
So much I am wanting to get done .. .. and for some reason the busier I am the more I want to do .. .. which means more and more keeps getting added to my crafty list. I find being busy quite exciting and a real motivator.
Christmas is still on the crafty list and this is today's offering:
Image: 2009 S.Ent. Ltd "The Snowman". (Another stamp that is years and years old .. .. yet I can remember buying it like it was yesterday from Dunelm .. .. when it used to have a craft department)
Backing Papers: A mish mash from my snippet mountain
Sentiment: Woodware Clear Magic Singles "FRS771" Merry & Bright
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
My Trusty Sewing Machine
The image was cut out and attached to the card front using foam pads.
Today's card actually fits into three challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge where we are encouraged to use up our snippets .. .. .. everything here, other than the card base came from my snippet mountain. Even the scrap of white card I stamped the image onto.
This is a brilliant challenge and one where there is lots of friendship and fun .. .. .. Di (the lovely lady who runs the challenge) works really hard on the challenge and her numbers have been steadily increasing. It would be great if we could get her to the magical 500 followers as a Christmas reward.
The Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme is "Twas the Night Before Christmas" - which means they want to see anything that might happen on Christmas Eve or you can take inspiration from the poem itself. For me Christmas Eve is "The Snowman" film. I love it.
The As You Like It Challenge where they want your card to showcase your favourite Christmas film and you need to say why. For me this film marks the start of Christmas and it usually plays on my favourite day of Christmas. Christmas Eve!
So that is me for today.
I'll catch you again soon.
